Spring Is Upon Us






Hey there friend!    

I don't know about you, but I look forward to spring every year because it's a new beginning, a fresh start.  When we lean on nature for our lessons, we can learn so many things.  Lessons such as, it's ok to let go of things, it's ok to go thru a dark season.  It's ok to have sudden growth!.  It's ok to be where you are.   It's actually encouraged to be happy where you are  and to feel it all.   The more open you are with yourself, the more you can experience the fullness life has to offer.    We just need to get out of our own way and allow life to come as it is.   Our discomfort comes when we experience life differently than we planned or think it should go.    Newsflash!!   It's gonna happen how it's supposed to happen and it's all perfect.     Peace comes when we start to understand that, even when, and especially when, life goes sideways, it is all for the good of the whole.    It's working in your favor. ALL OF IT!    Nothing has gone wrong to get you where you're going in life, but you haven't gotten there yet, so you don't know what that is yet.     It's all good.   ❤️ All of it ❤️

I wanted to share some opportunities for you if you're new to YL or are in need of stocking up on some regular supplements!

Your thoughts

Your thoughts
The thoughts that you have about yourself, and your life are so much more powerful than you have been led to believe. Knowing that, be more mindful and intentional with the thoughts that you allow to bounce around in your head and take up all your time.  Start telling yourself you’re amazing, that you are enough, that you are loved beyond measure, that you are perfect as you are, everything is going as planned, and that all is well.

I promise you, if you do that consistently and you start to transform the thoughts that run rampant through your mind, the good thoughts will start to overtake them and you won’t have those horrible thoughts about yourself and your life situation anymore. 
It’s not easy, it’s not quick, but it works if you do the work.  it’s also an inside job and nobody else can do it for you, so if you work on yourself, you will grow your life, and you will become better and you’ll be happier. #WinningAtLife #YouAreEnough #YouAreWorthy #KindWords #LoveYourself#fullcup #Overflow.


Your Mindset is the Key


Have you ever wondered why some people are successful and others aren't? There is a reason for it. Our mindset will help us achieve what we want in life. A positive mindset allows us to get through difficult times and achieve our goals.

Our mindset is the impetus that drives our actions

Our mindset is the impetus that drives our actions. It's also the life we lead!
In other words, if you have a positive and healthy mindset, then it will be reflected in your everyday living and vice versa. You can't change your life without changing your mindset first!

Let go of negative thoughts

Negative thoughts are harmful to your health. They can cause stress, depression, anxiety and anger. Negative thoughts can even lead to fear or jealousy. Resentment is also a negative emotion that often comes from the false belief that we do not have enough or are not as good as others who do.

Meditation opens our minds to the higher power

Meditation is a way to focus your mind. It's a way to connect with the higher power inside of you. Meditation is also a way for you to become more aware of yourself and the world around you, as well as nature in general.

Being generous and compassionate with others helps our own well-being

  • "It's not just about the money, it's giving back," says Bobbi. "When we give, we get so much more back in return."
  • This is especially true when you're able to help someone who really needs it. For example: If a friend asks for advice on how to deal with their abusive boyfriend, you could say something as simple as: "I think you should leave him." Then your friend will be grateful for your advice and likely feel better about making changes in their life. In effect, by helping them out of an unhealthy situation, you give yourself peace of mind as well!
  • Now imagine doing this on a massive scale—for example, through charity work or political activism—and getting similar results across the entire community! The amount of joy that would come from helping everyone around us live happier lives would be exponentially greater than any amount we could ever achieve by ourselves alone!

A well rested body and mind are essential to success

Sleep is a funny thing. We all know that we need it to function, but most of us don’t think about it in the same way we think about food or water. Sleep is life-sustaining and while some people are able to get by on less than others, nobody can live without sleep for an extended period of time.
Sleep is essential for our health, our happiness, and our success at work and at home. Here are just some of the benefits:
  • A well rested body and mind are essential to success
  • Sleep helps us form memories
  • When we sleep our brains continue consolidating memories from the day into long term storage which makes them easier to access later on when needed (such as when taking a test). According to research conducted by Dr Sara Mednick at UC Irvine School Of Medicine , students who took naps before their tests had better results than students who did not take naps before their tests!  The same research showed that even after six months these students maintained higher grades than those who didn't nap before exams!  This shows how important good quality sleep really is - if you don't get enough then your brain won’t be working at 100% capacity either during waking hours or when you try catching up on lost sleep later on so make sure that each night your mind gets plenty restful hours between its “offline” moments where no one else can access what's stored there ;)

Practice gratitude for all that we have in this world.

Gratitude is the attitude of being thankful for what one has. It is a way of thinking and feeling that helps build a sense of contentment, satisfaction and fulfillment. Gratitude makes people feel more positive about their lives. It gives them something to be happy about.
It’s important to show our appreciation for the good things in life because it keeps us focused on what is important, improves our mental health and creates happiness. When we focus on negative things like money problems or relationship issues they tend to get bigger while focusing on the positives can help reduce stress and anxiety levels by reducing negative emotions such as anger or frustration which can lead to depression if left unchecked over time because you cannot control everything in your life so it's better off trying instead making yourself miserable all day long worrying about something out there that could happen but never does so why waste energy?

By keeping a positive mindset, it allows us to live a more fulfilling life

  • By keeping a positive mindset, it allows us to live a more fulfilling life. When we are positive, we can do more. We are more likely to achieve our goals and succeed in life. We are also more likely to be happy and healthy as well as generous with others.
  • The opposite is true when we have a negative mindset. A negative attitude will not allow us to do what we want in life or accomplish any of our dreams because everything seems like such an uphill battle with no way out.

Conclusion

In conclusion, our mindset is one of the most powerful tools we have at our disposal. It enables us to make the right choices and decisions when faced with difficult situations. The better we are able to control our thoughts and emotions, the less likely we will be susceptible to negative influences that may otherwise hold us back from achieving success in life.

Product Spotlight

Chances are you will be spending a lot of time outside this month and next - out in the garden, at the pool or the beach, baseball games, hiking, or just enjoying a walk through the neighborhood. Exposure to sunlight is good for the soul… and your health! When your skin is exposed to sunlight, it makes Vitamin D from cholesterol. This vitamin plays an important role in our immune system so it can be hugely beneficial. However, overexposure to the sun can lead to burned skin, wrinkles, eye injuries, and even skin cancer. So let’s protect that beautiful skin, shall we? 
Young Living’s Mineral Sunscreen Lotion SPF 50 is the perfect solution! It’s a natural, broad-spectrum sunscreen and is chemical-free, making it a healthy alternative for adults and kids. You don’t have to worry about toxic chemicals - like a LOT of the mainstream sunscreens contain. This dermatologist-reviewed product is formulated to easily smooth on skin without leaving white residue. Enjoy the outdoors worry-free with up to 80 minutes of water- and sweat-resistant lotion. It’s reef-safe and made with non-nano zinc oxide. This might just be the best sunscreen you’ve ever used!
