I am so excited for 2016 and what the year has in store for me! I want to tell you all about it.
Whoa folks, I am newly unemployed. Yes, pretty shocking! I’ve always had a job out of the home and I have worked pretty much full- time since I was 15.
The company I worked for for the last 20 years has closed their doors. My last day was December 16th. When we first heard the news I was really mad, mostly because of the timing. Hello – Thanksgiving and Christmas were just around the corner. Then I was really sad. I had made many friends over the years and wondered what would happen to those relationships. I’m sure some will be lost, but some will stay strong! I was also worried a little worried with what I would fill my days with. I do not want to become a couch potato!! Then, I realized that this was an AWESOME opportunity to take the time I need to work on my Young Living business, to grow it. My employer gave us a really nice severance package (based on years worked) which allows me to take the time, stress free.
What have I been doing with my time other than with Young Living you ask? Well, I’ve tried my hand at some new DIY’s. I made bath bombs, bar soap and, body wash. And of course I’ve included Young Living essential oils in them all. I’m most excited to try the cold pressed bar soap. And I’ve heard from a few that have tried my bath bombs that they are awesome! I really wish we had a decent bath tub, i’d try them out for myself.
I’ve also tried my hand at refinishing/refurbishing some furniture. Mostly it’s painting but I did have to replace some pieces of wood too. Now just to sell them. I have them listed on craigslist and eventually they’ll be at the consignment shop where I have some space. The Shoppes on Fremont in Zimmerman. Have you been to Zimmerman? You should visit the store. The store is full of beautiful things!!
