I swear my husband asks me the name of this site just so he can laugh at me repeatedly. I get it. The name is odd. What is it about the word “oily” that sounds so…well, risqué and/or literally dirty? What I’m going to share on this page is waaaayyy left field from that. I’m sorry if you got here hoping for something else. Keep searching, my friend.
What literally started out four days ago as a goal to share my somewhat limited, but always expanding, knowledge of essential oils with friends on Facebook, reminded me how much I like to write. I am continually told I should be writing my family antics down, mainly because most days I feel like I live in some weird reality show where things keep going off course. I rarely walk in to work without someone saying, “Well…how’s it going today?”, with that hopeful look on their face. They know if I have a story, it’ll be a good one. Between the dogs, my son and my own clumsiness, I’m a wealth of stories waiting to happen. So the name started out as just something I threw out there because I needed anything as a name for my Facebook page. Straight and to the point: me, what I want to talk about, and how I got there. Then after I shared a few posts about my experiences, I realized I wanted do something more. Something where I can say more, even if it’s just out into the universe.
Trust me, this isn’t a blog about essential oils. Essential oils are a compliment to the life I’m leading. They are becoming a natural part of what I am striving for – peace, calm and fulfillment. So yes, I will talk about my experiences with oils and yes, if you are interested in knowing more, I’m your girl. But my journey is so much more than that. My life is a bowl of weirdness most days, if I do say so myself. And I want to share that with you. Because honestly it will probably make you feel better about your own circumstances or at least give you a good laugh. I want to share the highs and the daily inspirations, but also the lows and times I thought the pain would never end. All the days I still struggle. All the climbing out of holes to fall back in. All the reaching a goal, tripping and sliding back down to reality. All the missteps. All the laughs along the way. That’s what I want to share with you. I’m hoping that this odd name will lead someone to my journey…hopefully not for what my husband is betting on. I’m hoping my stories will speak to your situation. And I’m hoping the whole thing will be therapeutic for me, because let’s face it: the only good thing to come out of my crazy life is that I can educate and inspire other people and that, my friends, eases my soul.
