Boss Lady

The last twenty-four hours have been nerve wracking.  After being the "boss lady" for two months, I was offered a chance to run back to the security of a steady paycheck.  Did I want that?  That's a big NO.  Did I seriously consider it?  Yes, I did.  Why, you ask?  Because humans crave security.  People … Continue reading Boss Lady

Doing It Scared

I bet you thought I fell off the planet, didn't you? Nope, just super busy and super uninspired. I've read A LOT of books, because that's my escape from reality for a few minutes (or hours). With books you can focus on the words and the pictures in your head and let everything else go … Continue reading Doing It Scared

Tolerance

I'm opinionated person. I know you are all shocked. I have a lot of feelings about a lot of issues. If you ask me what I think, I'll gladly tell you. Will I try to do it in a way that doesn't offend you? Yeah, probably. Unless I don't like you anyway and then I'm … Continue reading Tolerance

Hands On

There's something to be said for a man who can actually do stuff. (Yes, I understand women can also do things and take care of themselves, as I most definitely can, but that's not the point here.) The point is men have changed. How many of you have a man in your life who can … Continue reading Hands On

Creativity

The most surprising thing I've found along my journey is my creativity. I've always liked to mess around with paint and drawing and such, but after my teenage years that got lost in the midst of living. When I started using essential oils in my daily life and reading product labels, that spark to create … Continue reading Creativity

Go team!

I honestly think my favorite part of this whole oily journey is sharing and then watching those people share the love. I love building a team and encouraging them to do the same. I love helping them achieve goals. Of all the things Young Living has done for me, I think my team is my … Continue reading Go team!

Why “Essential” Oils?

These days everyone has seen or heard of essential oils. They are sold all over the place in a wide range of prices. But what are they and what is the price difference all about?? Essential oils are the lifeblood of the plants (trees, shrubs, seeds, etc.) from which they are extracted. They are essential … Continue reading Why “Essential” Oils?

Oils of Our Lives

I'm at a weird point. I'm doing something I really enjoy. Weird. Taking a hobby I've had for years and sharing it with a lot of people. Also weird. More people than I ever expected in a few short weeks. I find myself randomly recommending oils in conversation. Which is not me. Then there's the … Continue reading Oils of Our Lives

A Better Me (and You)

The past few weeks have been so much fun for me.  I set a goal to be a better me and to make better decisions for my family.  And I decided I wanted to share what I was learning, so I started a Facebook page (facebook.com/katiesoilyjourney) and a blog.  Feel free to look me up … Continue reading A Better Me (and You)

The Struggle

Anybody care to guess how many times I've heard a reference to the parable of the prodigal son in the last month?   I don't know either,  but suffice it to say it's a large number.   God is persistent like that. I grew up in church.  I think a lot of people in the South do.  … Continue reading The Struggle
