Ramblings of the Oily Photographer

Today things are feeling good. Feeling like they are starting to come back into place again, feeling like we are moving forward again… with a slight delay.

What I have noticed is how much this has been physically affecting my body. Anyone that has seen me lately, after sitting for a while I am not very comfortable getting up. This weekend it was hot, then cold, then cool, then warm, easy for one’s body to tighten up.

So I purposely got up early Saturday morning and said “Lets Get Going!”. I got my little man and furboy and we went out to enjoy the sunshine for a walk. A beautiful morning spent together in peace and quiet and also great company.

I also relaxed more, enjoyed moving by walking, biking and even catching minnow’s. Having a great, low key quality time with family. Best… getting my camera out and having a computer to edit the photos on! ❤

Tonight while taking a walk through our basement, I was commenting to my hubby about how stiff and off kilter I was feeling that it dawned on me… PAM TAKE YOUR OWN ADVICE! Get the DEEP BLUE ON! I put it on and ahhhh relief, my muscles are happy, feeling very soothed!

I haven’t been as great lately with meal planning and eating as healthy as we normally do. I had to tell myself ITS OK! You are doing the best you can right now. Or my supplements – which I KNOW help support the nutrition in my body and I thrive SO MUCH MORE when I take them each day. My entire body just flows better. There was days I forgot my supplements.

Ive even been lacking in getting the diffusers up and going – yet I feel SO much better afterwards!

When we get into our own fog, its really hard sometimes to see past into the clear.

This evening I put in some Breathe, Lime and Geranium.

Breathe is The Oil of Breath – assists in letting go of grief and pain, to help open up your body to breathe and not feel suffocated by saddness.
Lime is The Oil of Zest for Life – lime elevates someone above what they have been weighted down from, instilling courage and cheer in the heart and to be grateful for life.
Geranium is The Oil of Love & Trust – restores confidence in the goodness of others and the word, facilitating trust, promoting emotional healing, forgiving, gentle, loving, open and tolerant.

2 drops Breathe, 2 drops Lime and 1 drop of Geranium as the Diffuser Blend.

This diffuser blend is so good, I felt inspired to sit and write, to get it out of my heart and mind. To come down from my head and into my heart, have complete trust that everything is going to work out exactly the way it needs to and everything will be ok. To hold the vision in my mind that I can literally see coming forth before my eyes in so many ways. That with our hard work, love and devotion we completely 100% deserve to reach these goals and be ecstatic with the results.  Even with baby steps – you are always moving forward :D! To just write and not care what anyone might say or think. Its about us and what we need to happen – what we see as our vision for this beautiful life!

The good news is we are finally moving forward with the basement!!! My heart has been very heavy and overwhelmed these past two weeks. Its a fresh week that started off today with the green light to re-build! My heart is happy, our kids as I type are designing their rooms – exactly how they want them to be. Its the least we can do for them since they have been displaced for a 2nd time in one year, from their rooms! I am SO excited to give this to them. However they want it painted, where they want their toy storage and shelves to go, what pictures they want in their rooms! To completely make it about them and who they truly are! ❤

Our family is excitedly awaiting our new kitchen as well. A process which was our planned spring/summer project and is exactly what Ive been envisioning for so long! I am so excited, proud and quite eager to enjoy this upgrade to our home. Something our family loves doing together, COOKING, and how amazing its going to be – just days away!!!

With the last 2 week flood craze we totally fell out of our “norm” or the “daily routines”, we’ve been tested just a little bit more, challenged with becoming stronger. Learning how to better support emotional health with sleep, nutrition and oils. This past year and a half through all of our renovation process we’ve grown significantly as individuals and as a family. This flood has pushed us all beyond how we normally do things and live to a summer living room sleep over. Hubby and I now purposely going to our bedroom to relax earlier once the kids ‘go to bed’ (remember, kids in the living room) and we are actually getting better sleep because we are ‘going to bed earlier’!

So amongst all of this, there has been a silver lining. If anything, how we grow is the best. We’ve been given the opportunity to spend more time together – because we have to – in a smaller space than we are used to – and its been ok! I feel we are getting through it, with some moments of course but who doesn’t have those. Hahaa life isn’t perfect… but its perfectly ours! 😉
