Are you feeling stressed yet? So was I. As a matter of fact, as I focused on my children's needs for the coming year, I had a full blown anxiety attack, something I haven't experienced in years. My wonderful husband noticed my distress and asked sweetly "Do you want me to rub some oils into your feet?" I love that man. He grabbed a bottle of Balance and began massaging a few drops into the bottoms of my feet and I immediately felt grounded. My heart rate slowed, the spinning in my head stopped, and I could think. Then something really cool happened. I received a text from a friend who is undergoing chemotherapy with this message
"Can you come rub oils into my feet? Last time you did, I felt almost human again."
I was supposed to be planning the year, making dinner, balancing the budget, and entertaining company all in the next two hours. I wasn't sure if I had it in me, but my husband had great insight. "You are feeling anxiety because you feel out of control, like you can't manage the school year. Serving someone is something you CAN do. It will make you feel better. Go. I will make the soup".
So I grabbed my oils and I went. And guess what? He was right. I felt a hundred times better. This experience confirmed to me again the importance of focusing on our own health and state of mind first. Do my children need a great education? Yes. Do they need dinner? Yes. Does the budget need to be balanced? Yes. But more than anything, I need to be balanced, so I can do all of those important things. If you are feeling like the picture above, and you are new to doTERRA, and you want to try a little Balance, send me a message and i'll get you a sample.
