Encouragement for the day

Finding my niche: Healthy Living and Encouragement

Hello everyone. I started this blog a few months ago with great intentions and then I got busy and set it on a shelf for another date. If you’ve missed me, great if not that’s ok too! I’ve been thinking a lot about trying to find a niche with my blogging and the most that I can come up with is the idea of encouraging people and doing my best to live a healthy lifestyle through all natural options.

When my kids were young, I remember countless trips to the doctor’s office for ear infections that would come right back after yet another round of antibiotics. Way back then, I would do my research to find natural ways to help them with ear infections, teething, chest congestion, etc. Once I decided to quit with the antibiotics (which are great when needed), all of a sudden the constant ear infections stopped and I believe that my children’s bodies figured out how to heal themselves. Was I neglecting my children? No, I was figuring out how to allow their God-given immune systems to work in the way they were created. There’s no magic pill that can be taken to combat every ailment out there, but there are natural things provided in nature that can help us become healthier and potentially keep us away from too many doctor’s visits. I still believe this way today, there are things found in nature that can help us, natural medicines that can bring relief. A few months back, I decided to try essential oils and became a distributor with Young Living. I can’t say enough about just the few that I have tried. I was having major issues with insomnia and choosing to diffuse lavender oil and rub it on the bottom of my feet helped before bed (I’ve been sleeping peacefully for the last several weeks when sleep had been evading me for years).  This is just one example of a benefit I experience using essential oils. My long-term goal is to become chemical free in my household, through thieves cleaner, dish soap, laundry detergent, toothpaste, etc.

As far as encouraging people, I hope that the example I live in my everyday life does that for me. Society is at odds with itself right now, we’re hearing all sorts of negative things on every side. Social media, news, media outlets, newspapers (for those that read them), political news stations, and the list goes on. It’s all negative, negative, negative and I’ve had just about enough. I’m going to do my part, to bring some encouragement and hope to the people that I connect with. It doesn’t take much to smile at people, be polite and treat others the way that you would want to be treated. We never know whose lives will be touched with just a smile. Find your rythmn in life, find what works for you and then live it.
