Today is office day for me. I wanted to write about my aroma complete and all the amazing opportunities working with & for Young Living has brought into our household and the blessings that have come with that.
Today is also what I’m calling Lemondropper Day. It’s March 25, and that is a day that we celebrate the anniversary of our group starting up…. Just as I sat down to write, a new video was posted and here I am, I have chills and goosebumps and tears, because yes! This is what it means to be a lemondropper. This is what it’s all about.
We are a group of people, working hard, working together and changing lives. Our lives.
When I became a mother, I wanted to make the best future for my children… I made a vow, right there at the hospital the night she as born that I would do anything (& heck do I mean anything) to make her life the best. I whispered those words to her at 3am that night while her Daddy slept in the (extremely uncomfortable) makeshift bed in our hospital room, after a terrifying day that ended in a scary surgical birth. I promised her sister the same, almost two years ago, the night she was born, and every single day I promise myself that I will keep on doing that very thing.
Why am I telling you this? Well, you see, this is all part of my story… my lemondropper story. I didn’t even know what had happened, but you know what, becoming a lemondropper found me.
I became a lemondropper out of the desire to better our health and well-being and to rid our house from toxins, and now, nine months later here I am and I don’t regret one second of it.
The oils, yes, they have changed our life. They have blessed us with a natural way to take care of our bodies and to help us feel better when we are sick, tired, cranky, can’t sleep, sad…. whatever….. they help. They just do.
But, being a lemondropper, that has changed me too. I get to stay home with my girls, I get to help people find solutions to their problems, I get to build relationships and make new friends. I get to stay home with my children, and one day, I hope that I get to do so with my husband and best friend working with me in this…
I get to work alongside the best group of people I could ever wish for. I have a team, a tribe, a clan…. I have their back, they have mine, and we all know, that we are there for each other, no matter what.
The financial blessings that come from being a lemondropper are huge too. You probably already saw the huge kit of oils I received for hitting the rank of Silver. I know that doesn’t mean much to most of you, but you can see that that’s a lot of oils…. it’s a HUGE blessing. This year, I am also being blessed with the opportunity of travel. I get to go camping in Utah with 500 of the most amazing people you could imagine. I will spend time learning from Lindsay & Michael Moreno and the amazing Jon Acuff.
I also get to go to the Mediterranean this summer too. Would you believe it? Nope, I wouldn’t have either. A free cruise through Italy, Turkey and Croatia with the global leadership members of Young Living. Crazy huh? That’s not even all of it….. there’s so much more I haven’t touched on, but I want to stop there…
I want to share this video with you. I want you to realize that the best part of being a lemondropper…. it’s that I am becoming the BEST VERSION OF ME.
Gah. I want this for you too…. I want this for all of you <3
