Which parent will I be?

By on Jun 16, 2015 in One a Day, Parenting, Post a Day 2015, The Balancing Act | 0 comments

“I got two A’s,” the small boy cried. His voice was filled with glee. His father very bluntly asked, “Why didn’t you get three?” “Mom, I’ve got the dishes done,” The girl called from the door. Her mother very calmly said, “Did you sweep the floor?” “I’ve mowed the grass,” the tall boy said, “And put the mower away.” His father asked him, with a shrug, “Did you clean off the clay?” The children in the house next door seem happy and content. The same thing happened over there, And this is how it went: “I got two A’s,” the small boy cried, His voice was filled with glee. His father very proudly said, “That’s great, I’m glad you belong to me.” “Mom, I’ve got the dishes done,” The girl called from the door. Her mother smiled...

Switch the Witch

I was at a class, and one gal started passing this one around. She called it “Switch the Witch.” I accidentally call it “Stitch the Witch” on occasion. The soft sweet smell, and the announcement of the name, and suddenly everyone’s mood was lighter. So, now, I try to use it when starting meetings. Announcing the name of the blend, and passing it around. Have you tried an oil blend like this? What is your experience?

I am an emotional eater

By on May 12, 2015 in Food, Health, One a Day, Post a Day 2015, Relationships, Society at Large, The Balancing Act, The Business Side | 0 comments

When I started the Whole 30, I started it as an experiment with my body. I started it to see if there was any reactions to food that I could weed out. I didn’t start the Whole 30 to see how I used food to confront emotions. In the third week of the challenge – the second week of March – I had a terrible day, and then week, at work. And, in that week, my emotional eating was crystalized. I had a bad day at work. One bad day turned into a terrible week. I’d like to get into the details, but it’s too personal and too close. I’ve gotten congratulations and compliments on this thread of personal posts, but previous emotional confessions have happened so long ago that there has been time for healing. That is, the emotional incident occurred so long ago that I’ve had time to make sense of the emotions, so sharing the feelings is cathartic and...

More on youngin’ emotional identification

By on May 7, 2015 in Family, Health, Motherhood, One a Day, Parenting, Post a Day 2015, Society at Large, The Balancing Act | 0 comments

Using oils to help my son isn’t something new. I started applying them on me and Levi as soon as I got my first package. What is surprising, though, is how often I use them in conjunction with helping him find emotion. He got in trouble, again, at school. Sure, part is the age, but part — why can’t he just remember? Then, I have to consider. It’s taken me how long to learn to identify and name my emotions? And, he is only eight years old? I must give this young one at least a grain of salt. This particular week, he had two days in a row where he was disrupting his class in some way. His teacher purposefully addresses the outcome that wasn’t met to incite a conversations with parents or care givers. She marks off the one of four student-learning-expectations that were not followed. Often, though, our darling son “cannot remember” what happened....
