WHAT I EAT IN A DAY TO DETOX FROM THE HOLIDAYS

I know the 2020 holidays seem like a far off memory. So much has happened in the course of the first few weeks of January 2021, and the warmth and magic of the holiday season–even though the season was spoiled by virtual gatherings and socially distant gift exchanges–seems so in the past.

MY TOP 8 FAVORITE ESSENTIAL OILS

[I am not sponsored by any essential oil company and I mention Stillpoint Aromatics throughout this article because I just happen to love them, and have been working with them for years. Feel free to choose to work with whatever company you feel comfortable with.]

I discovered essential oils over five years ago when I took a weekend workshop introducing me to this wonderful world of nature magic. A group of about fifteen complete strangers spent two intensive days together, sharing intimate personal stories with one another as we learned about essential oils, how they can be applied to the body and used in meditation, and how to work with them safely.

I knew nothing about this season, but I remember years ago when I watched the very first season of The Bachelorette (with Trista and Ryan) and felt so warmed that they actually got married, had children, and seemed to stay happily together.

THE TRUTH ABOUT DATING AND THREE IMPORTANT THINGS NO ONE EVER TELLS YOU

I am no longer single, but my years of dating and struggling with my love life will forever be a part of me, and I truly thank the Universe every day for finally delivering me from that space of singleness. It was hard and I don’t wish the struggle on anyone. That being said, I now know that it’s survivable if you have the tools and support system to navigate the crazy single space and project yourself in a positive direction. For many years (upwards of ten), I was not moving in a forward direction, but rather in more of a cyclical, repetitive, unproductive direction. Once I finally snapped out of that spin, I still had work to do, but it was much more positive work, and much more fruitful!
