The best decision I made in 2017
This time last year, in that limbo land between Christmas and New Year when you're not sure what day it is or what you're meant to be doing, and you're torn between eating all the ham, carbs and chocolate; or starting your green juice detox and new exercise regime, I set my goals and intentions for 2017.
I love reflecting and dreaming big, so I wrote two sets - Personal & Business. At the top of the personal list was "Switch to natural health solutions' (I wrote more about this here)
This started off with natural toothpaste and deodorant, but by May I'd decided to get my own doTERRA wholesale account and access to 25% off all their essential oil and natural healthcare products. I had no idea that within 12 months our home would be so LOW tox and I would be educating others about these little bottles of pure plant medicine.
Getting a doTERRA wholesale account was the best decision I made this year for myself and my family. These certified and pure essential oils have changed our lives in more ways that I ever imagined.
We have gradually replaced the contents of our medicine, personal care and cleaning cabinets. We now have more energy, better sleep, stronger immune systems, clearer (and younger looking!) skin and mood management tools.
Plus we have natural solutions for cleaning which is so exciting as chemicals disrupt all the systems in our body: respiratory, nervous, cardiovascular, endocrine, reproductive, organ body, and the largest organ of all - our skin. Not only do I not want toxic ingredients on our skin or in our bodies, I also don't want them infiltrating our water ways and poisoning our oceans.
3 words that often pop up in my head are Simon Sinek's "Start with why'. My why for starting off with doTERRA was to bring more natural health solutions into our home, but along the way my why has grown and evolved into so much more.
Last year I realised that I can teach a max of 15 yoga classes per week, and if I go beyond that limit I start to drain my energy reserves, which does a disservice to myself, my students and my family.
The solution I came up with was to create Surfside Shop - a secondary income stream which did not rely on me being physically present, or exchanging time for money. But the universe had much bigger plans and the doTERRA opportunity came knocking, bringing with it a generous, liberating and empowering business model. I can work when and where I want. It allows Mums to step up into into a life of abundance, freedom and fulfilment as they help others find natural health solutions. And then there are the little things, like the fact I can now buy coconut yoghurt every week, and the big things like the numbers in our savings account going up again each month - for the first time since my daughter was born and I swapped my corporate career for yoga.
doTERRA has not just provided more financial and time freedom, it has also given me wings. I am a gypsy at heart. Travel lights up my heart and my soul and the lack of it in my life is something I have personally struggled with over the past two years.
Thanks to doTERRA's incentive trip program, next month I'm travelling to Uluru on an expenses paid trip...and teaching the yoga session. To 150 of my doTERRA business partners and soul sisters. In a sacred place which carries so much spiritual and cultural significance. This company doesn't just open doors, it flings them wide open!
I am so excited to meet more of the doTERRA community in person. The culture in doTERRA blows my mind - I feel like I have found my tribe. Likeminded, inspiring, creative, driven, talented women who are passionate about health, wellbeing, serving others and lifting each other up.
Leading a team and learning from inspiring mentors is something I've really missed and it feels so great to have that in my life again.
MAKING A POSITIVE DIFFERENCE TO LIVES, BOTH NEAR & FAR
Stories I hear first-hand of how these oils are changing people's lives on a daily basis make my heart so happy. I love that drop by drop we are not just helping to get these life-changing tools into people's homes, but also making a positive difference to lives of farmers and harvesters in disadvantaged areas.
This is thanks to Co-Impact Sourcing which creates long-term patnerships, sustainble jobs and reliable income; meanwhile Healing Hands Foundation, doTERRA's charitable organisation which provides funding and resources to create community based projects, such as building schools, medical clinics and installing drinking water.
