So I apologize for being a little MIA over the past few weeks. Life has been a whirlwind of moving, unpacking, working (and more working), oils, and health coaching. Just when you think you have things figured out, it all changes. Life has a funny way of throwing in plot twists.
A year ago, my life was completely different. I was renting my house out and moving in with my boyfriend. And now that I'm back in my house (after a whole year of changes), it feels a little strange. I never thought I'd be back in here. Don't get me wrong...I love my house. I love my things. I love my space. But this is not where I thought I would be.
Even three months ago, things were completely different. Isn't it crazy how life changes so quickly? I had it all planned out. I was so ready to be back in my house...setting up my home office...building my health coaching business and working on my oils.
And then...life. It happens, right?!
Now don't get me wrong...all of that still stands. I am still focusing on building my business with health coaching and oils (especially because I so strongly believe in the product and health and wellness. It's definitely where my passion lies!).
However, it means changing a lot of things...again. And I'll admit....I've been procrastinating unpacking my office. Most of the house is done (minus the pictures on the wall), but for the office. I just keep piling stuff in there...I think I'm hoping it will unpack and organize itself. That happens...right?!
I think one of the biggest lessons I've learned over the past year is that life goes on...we may think we have it all planned out, and just when we think it's all going to fall into place, something happens to shake it all up. We have to learn to embrace the changes...and not let them suck us into negativity. Because in the end, many of those changes lead us to amazing things!
I don't know where life is going to take me in the next year....shoot, in the next six months. But I'm so excited to embrace it and see where it takes me.
Life isn't perfect...but it sure is beautiful. I can't wait for 2016 and where it will take me! But here's the most amazing part...I am starting NOW!! Who needs a new year to start anything??
I hope you had an awesome weekend! And have an amazing week! And an even better Thanksgiving!! Enjoy your time with friends and family this week!
With love and wellness,

So, I am moving. Again.
Yes. You read that right.
This will be my fourth move in two years (I don’t even want to calculate further than that, because it makes my head hurt to think about it). I am so sick of moving…it’s seriously not even funny. And it’s definitely no longer fun.
But I made my bed…and thus, I must lie in it (or is it lay in it?). Either way, I’ve made a series of choices that have led me where I am today. So tomorrow, I will be moving back into my house that I bought last May 2014.
It’s bittersweet, really. Yes, I am super excited to be moving back into my house. But I’m so not looking forward to cleaning everything (it’s been in storage since March) and unpacking (again) and getting settled back into another house (again).
But what I *am* looking forward to is having my own space, my own furniture, and being able to organize all my oils and business stuff! I can never thank my friend enough for allowing me to stay in her house, but being the OCD person I am, it was hard for me to live and work out of a Tupperware bin (I won’t even tell you what the office looks like!!).
One of the best parts about this move, though, is that the majority of my stuff is packed and in storage, so I don’t have to do much packing. Score one for that!! And normally, the unpacking is so much easier (and more fun as you get to discover all the new *old* things you have, LOL).
I remember moving into my friend’s house…thinking it was going to be so long before I could move back into my house (note: my house was rented out as I moved in with an ex-boyfriend; second note: I have now re-connected with said ex-boyfriend and we are currently together again).
I seriously can’t believe it’s here…moving back into the house I purchased over a year ago (shoot, almost 2 years ago now)…I had a lot of work done before I moved in, as well as after, making it exactly what I wanted. I’m excited to get back into it and ENJOY all that hard work!!
Okay – so by now, I’m sure you’re thinking, “Uh…hello!! Re-connected with your ex?! What the…?” I kind of skimmed over that part, huh? Oops.
There really isn’t much to say as it’s not really anybody’s business what goes on between he and I, but yes, we started talking again in August and have since been able to communicate and work out the issues we previously had. Growth and maturity and acceptance are amazing things.
One of the biggest lessons I learned from our break-up and reconnection is that nobody can ever really know what goes on in someone else’s relationship. We can hear about it all day long, but the only people who really know are the two people involved in that relationship.
All I’ve asked from my friends and family is to keep an open mind and to be compassionate and understanding. Ultimately, I am the one who has to live with my decision…and ultimately, I am the only one who really knows what went on in our relationship. And really, that’s not 100% accurate. There’s my side, his side, and the truth…and it’s like that in EVERY relationship.
So before you judge, before you react negatively, remember that there’s no way of ever knowing what actually goes on in someone else’s relationship. This was an awesome lesson for me to learn, as well, because I was always quick to judge and disapprove of others’ relationships. And who am I to say what is or isn’t right for someone else?
There have been a lot of life lessons for me these past 6 or 7 months. It wasn’t always easy and it certainly wasn’t always fun. But I have grown and matured and learned so much in that time period. And in the end, isn’t that what life is all about?
So here’s to my move date (again), and here’s to my new *old* relationship with Scott…because believe me, it is definitely new!
With love and wellness,
