I’m having a hard time fathoming that Spring is here already!
I spent several weeks at the beginning of this year reviewing 2016 and considering the future.
At the beginning of last year, I was ready to start taking control of my life again after two devastating events had destroyed the latter half of 2015 for me. First, a dear friend died. Then, my oldest daughter fell down the stairs resulting in amnesia (I am happy to report that she has fully recovered *smile*).
As I said, I was ready to get back to work last January…
I had setup an action plan to increase my Facebook fans. This worked great – I was getting 3-5 likes a day!
I was also set to start creating infographics and video presentations for my website. I got a couple done, but then… I fizzled and succumbed to anxiety and depression. Again.
My life completely flipped upside down when May found my youngest, 2 cats, 2 horses, and I moving from Oregon to Minnesota to live and ending 20+ years of marriage.
Shortly after moving, I met a wonderful man. Over the next few months, our lives took several twists and turns – including two more moves! Three moves in six months tends to be rather time consuming, as well as stressful!
We are nicely settled now and I am ready to put my New Year’s resolutions in motion! (Who says resolutions need to start on the first of January?! *laughs*)
I whole-heartedly believe that sharing my love for God and His gift of therapeutic grade essential oils with all who will listen is my calling. As such, my long-term goal for the year is to put into action the many sharing ideas I’ve had over the years.
My action plans have been updated and I am ready to go – the only thing holding me back is floundering confidence in myself. I praise the Lord for encouragement I’ve received from family and friends… as well as business associates!
I’ve had many fails and more false starts than I can count already this year. But, I fully believe that God has led me in this direction and He is more than able to turn failures into success stories!
