ugh.. I get it. Skeptical, and totally unsure of what I am even about to try. I even used the reasons, it is way to expensive. It can not be any better then the stuff I already use. Oh, and I will never get an account. I just won't buy enough to need it.
Yup. I have said it all! However, as I took some time for myself, I learned how the choices I made effected not just me, but my family. It was not until then that my priorities changed. Not all at once. But baby steps. I started to buy clean products for my kids. And still judged my sister for the oils she placed on her kids at night. It did not make sense to me.
Then my 14 month hurt himself. For the first time the oils came out, and magic healed his face without having to do anything more then spritz the wound throughout the day. Then the cleaners were knocked out one full bottle at a time. This was a much painless transition then I ever would of thought. To the point where an entire closet was converted into one bottle of cleaner! Talk about getting some space back!!
I lastly started to take care of myself. This was a tuff one as I am known to put others way ahead of my own needs. I have learned over time though, how taking care of myself first, actually makes me more accountable to others when I am needed.
Isn't it funny how being skeptical can actually make you open up the most. I mean we should not trust without knowing what it is that we are doing. And we should not judge until we have experienced it for ourselves. Even I oil my kids at bedtime now. Trust me, Five years ago I was the first to make a negative comment about what I did not understand!
I suppose it is never to late to try something new. It is definitely never too late to say sorry. And it is never to late to learn something new about yourself. You might even surprise yourself of what you are capable of! I know I sure did. My life changed for the better the moment I met my husband. I became a mom first, then a wife. I somehow weaseled my way into ranching and shocked myself at how good I took on this roll. I learned to thrive outside of my comfort zone. It is tested daily. Sometimes I handle it amazingly, sometimes I crumble! Lessons my friends. That's what life is. You just make the choice around what lesson you wish to learn!
Life is all about imperfections, it is these flaws that make us unique and truly powerful! So, take a moment to look at your reflection and truly trust yourself.
