I get headaches and migraines quite frequently. Generally I notice symptoms appearing after exercise or high-stress events. And annoyingly, the only thing I can do in these situations is try to treat the pain and go to bed. I’ve wasted so many days… but when you have a migraine headaches all you want to do is hide from the world and wait until the pain passes (preferably in a very dark room with no interruptions).
And I am far from alone in my headachy world.
Who else is limping their way to the end of the school holidays?
I love my boys... but we have been spending waaaaayyyy too much time together the past few days stuck inside in front of the one airconditioner.
So it's now post-Christmas time here in Aus, and that means leaving the concrete of the cities for the sweeping beaches of Queensland and New South Wales. Well, for me anyway.
Every year, my husband and I along with our boys head to Northern NSW for some much needed R&R. We love hanging around Murwillumbah (amazing cafe culture, antique and homeware shopping and natural holistic focussed businesses), Byron Bay (doesn't need any introduction - but I'm currently obsessed to ethical fashion label Rowie, which is based between Byron and...) Bangalow ( <3 ) and Mullumbimby (which is where my family settled originally in Aus).
And, every year I struggle to narrow down my 100+ dōTERRA collection down to a few that fit inside an old free Clinique bag... but it's all about the planning and envisaging what I will be doing with my time, and then bringing my most relevant oils and dōTERRA products. So, for this year's trip I have narrowed my sights down to:
dōTERRA isn't just an essential oil company.
It is also company that grows communities and empowers small scale, sustainable and ethical farming, in developing nations.
Through dōTERRA's Co-Impact Sourcing initiatives, we have been able to support, build, and teach farmers how to own their own land and support themselves and their family's financially - creating economies where they're really needed.
I’m definitely not alone when I say that my emotions can get the better of me sometimes. But there was a time when they really got the better of me. My story is like so many other women, but to me, it was unique. At that time I thought I was the only woman in the universe feeling the way I felt. I now know otherwise, but when you’re handed a formal diagnosis of severe post-natal depression with two little boys at home, a shift happens inside. A monumental shift. How can my mind put up such a great internal struggle against what other mothers claim to be the most magical time of their lives? I had no concept of magic with my babies, just endless sleep deprived days and screaming (mostly from the babies, but sometimes from me - warts and all out today!). To say I needed to make changes was an understatement.
