I just want to share what’s on my mind and heart.
Although I have done many things this year and achieved several accomplishments, I have felt overwhelmed, stressed, and under motivated. Although I had dreams, I was only halfheartedly pursuing them, too stuck in the loop in my head filled with self doubt. I also told myself that it was ok, that I didn’t have to be perfect, that I was doing well enough.
That wasn’t the truth. I woke up tired and went to bed tired and was maybe putting 30% of myself into life. Enough to get by but not enough to thrive and grow. Even though I was getting things done, I didn’t feel proud and successful. I felt less than because I knew that I was capable of so much better than what I was putting out there.
As some of you may know, I am a wellness advocate for doTERRA essential oils. I was blessed to have these oils enter my life in 2013 and although it took me a while to get into and understand them, I literally cannot imagine my life without them now.
This past week was the annual convention for doTERRA in Salt Lake City. I love conventions because I am surrounded by 40k like minded people, the energy is great, and the learning to be had is phenomenal.The theme of this convention was Together and they did an outstanding job of it as always.
However, as amazing as all the new products and science was, that was not my main take away from this past week. In the past week, I ran into so many incredible people. Many had three or four jobs, one of my uber drivers was pursuing a double major and triple minor in school. They were all so happy and fulfilled, even though their time was full.
But what finally got me was the performance advocate that they brought on. Her name was Ashley Hess. She already had a full time doTERRA business, but she also wanted to pursue a music career. So she worked her business by day and pursued her music career at night. At this point, I told God that I got the message, that I needed to put myself all in.
So I have committed myself to going all in. To put all of myself into my doTERRA business, my writing, and my karate journey. I am going to stop hiding and saying no. I am no longer going to hold anything back, but I am going to let my light shine, be genuine, and put my whole heart and soul into wherever life takes me.
Onward to the journey!
