Yes, you read that title right! I’m going back to University!! Woohoo!!
Now settle down, settle down. Before I’m the topic of today’s gossip and you start wondering, “What the heck is wrong with this girl? She already has a PhD!”, keep reading.
- I love learning! I believe in education! I would not have enrolled in graduate school if I didn’t love to learn. I would take classes until I die, if I didn’t have to deal with stress from exams, research paper deadlines etc.
- This year, I decided that I won’t compromise on my family’s health and wellness. There are so many daily products we use with high levels of toxicity. It’s crazy. There are apps available that show you how toxic various products are. I was blown away! So many things I used (including around my baby) that were simply no good. I was determined to make some changes. I don’t want sickness to be the reason I can’t do something. What you don’t spend on pure, non-toxic products, and healthy foods, you’ll spend on doctor/hospital bills. Now, that’s not to say that I’ll never get sick or Amara will never catch a cold (she already has-twice), but I don’t have to contribute to poor health. I can make smarter choices that will make a difference!
So with all that being said, I am officially a student at YL University!!! “Lenore, I’ve never heard of that. Is that another for-profit institution?” (can you tell my PhD is in Higher Education?).
No it’s not another for-profit :). YL stands for Young Living! Young Living is an essential oil company that provides pure, non-toxic, and powerful products that are infused with essential oils. I was really impressed with their Seed to Seal program and how the company distill their oils. It’s so fascinating to me! This is why I wanted to take my essential oil knowledge to the next level. So, I’m basically schooling myself on everything essential oil related. I can’t believe it took me this long to recognize just how amazing and powerful pure essential oils are.
My goal is to learn something new about an oil each week! My diffuser is always going, and my house smells wonderful. Knowledge is power. Wellness is a must. I’m so excited to start this journey. Like I said in my introduction, this year is all about my becoming. So here’s to becoming a lover of essential oils and a healthier version of me! Do you use essential oils? If so, what’s your favorite oil. Comment below! If you don’t use essential oils or you’re on the fence about using, what’s holding you back? Let’s chat!
