The Reading List

By on Apr 24, 2015 in The Reading List | 0 comments

This week’s review. While continuing to plug away at The Complete Enneagram (I’m a social 9) and the Big Leap, these articles have captured my attention. I’ll focus on the trend in social justice. Why are Portland housing prices so crazy?  An explanation of stagnation.  How can we have equity when those who make the food for our representatives live in poverty?  (The goal is to post again in two weeks on this topic, not a year from now.)

Cooling Relief of Peppermint

Sunday night, Levi went to bed warm. He had woken up even more congested in the morning, and now, compare to Saturday, he had lethargy added to his obvious symptoms. Bedtime came, and he didn’t even fuss. However, 9pm rolled around and he came out of his room in a confused and delirious state! I had waited for this moment. The moment when my son finally got a fever. Sure, he had a few mild fevers as a toddler, but so far nothing as a little boy. After we got him to calm down and stay seated (he had got up unsure of where to go, as if there was a fog over any lucid part of his awareness), I found the thermometer. 101.7! It barely took 10 seconds to figure it out! So, now, empowered with my natural health care remedies, I grabbed my peppermint oil. Levi is accustomed to me slathering him with oils. We use InTune and Balance daily to keep him focused and help moderate moods. We have...

Trouble sleeping?

I have found that the best night’s sleep comes with 4 drops of each Serenity and Vetiver in my Petal diffuser. The Serenity blend sweetly almost lulls me to sleep, while I feel like Vetiver roots me to REM. What are your night time routines?

Learning Self-Acceptance

By on Apr 21, 2015 in Health, One a Day, Post a Day 2015, Relationships, Society at Large, The Balancing Act | 0 comments

22 pounds, as of three weeks ago (3rd week of March). This is significant for a number of a reasons. I made some changes that I hadn’t previously considered in my diet. I added essential oils to my daily healthcare regimen. And, I am learning, with more awareness, to accept me for who I am. My whole life, I have disliked my body image. I was never a size 2, and that’s mostly who I compared myself to. I come with baggage that puts me in a statistical category where body image is harder to deal with. A statistical category that says being overweight is more common. I come from central European genes where sturdy people seem to be the norm – with my Polish and Slovenian heritage – read, not a size 2. Finally, at the age of 27-28, I was learning to love my body and appreciate its curves. I was okay with my D cup and, then, size 12-16 pant size. This change of heart...
