PSA: 3 year olds love roller bottles. You know what they don’t love? Oils in there eyes!
Here’s a #twofer (👈🏻two for one) tip.
1️⃣Past Tense is amazing for headaches. Even on the little patients. But, it’s fully concentrated. For my kiddos, I like to split the bottle in half or even 1/3 into another roller. I keep the fully concentrated for me and top the other bottle with FCO to dilute it down. #oneformeoneforthem
2️⃣If your 3 year old gets a little crazy with the roller and it ends up dripping down his forehead into his eye, dilute the crud out of it with FCO. What I mean by this is, squirt FCO in his eyes until it adheres to it and flushes out. Then wipe it all off.
Now little man is a #happycamper without a headache!
I find it comforting that we always have a choice. Everything is about perspective. The saying, "you can either see the glass half full or half empty" is so full of truth. I've never felt sorry for myself because of my cancer diagnosis. I've never questioned, "why me." I knew right away that it was something that was placed in my path for a reason.
That is why I had such a hard time when people would say they were worried about me or felt sorry for me. I know they had the best intentions but I had to guard myself from that energy because I didn't feel that way for myself. I chose to dig for the deeper meaning of why this showed up and use it as an opportunity to grow and it's a decision that has changed my life in so many incredible ways.
I encourage everyone to try to see their next perceived negative experience this way. It may be hard and it may take time to train your mind to think this way and that is ok. You have to start somewhere. You're worth the effort! 😘
I once made a list of everything I had done in one day that required me to trust someone. There were big things (riding in a cab) and many, many small things, like turning on a light. The electrician, the builder of the lamp, the person who plugged it in, the people operating the power plant, the people mining the coal to feed the power plant...I trust that each did their job, and I have no reason to think the light won't turn on every time I flip the switch. We all trust, thousands of times a day, so many times we take it for granted. Perhaps I'll ponder those acts of trust fulfilled, which are legion, in times when trust is broken. #trust#adventword#glasshalffull -
More snow keeping me away from my littlest besties 🤬3rd time will be the charm when we get together in a couple weeks...or ELSE Mother Nature!
Found day means: Clean home. Hilarious movie. Lovely lunch. Head start on my marking. (Switched up my marking locale from my home office to living room under the always watchful eye of my co-worker.) Still would have preferred time with my girls but turned lemons into Diet Coke. (Lemonade is too sweet 😉)
