Last night I got to spend a few hours with some special women that I don’t get to see very often. Every year at this time a close friend of mine has a pot-luck event at her beautiful home so we can all relax and catch up. My friend has been putting on this event for a solid 7 years and it’s something that we all look forward too. During the night I got in some conversations that were really cool…I found out that a few of these ladies who used to be solely stay-at-home moms were now doing some work on the side that was bringing them all kinds of joy and satisfaction. One of my friends has turned a very part-time photography hobby into a real business, working with clients that include local magazines for food and wine photos, plus some post wedding photos. She was so happy to talk about it and I could tell she was very content. Another woman started a catering business that specializes in gluten free food. She cooks the food and delivers it to families who live in a 10 mile area for no extra charge. She said it was going great because certain people nowadays are simply too tired to cook during the week. And this is what I love to hear… people who have a passion about something and make a business out of it. Because we all know this one thing; if you don’t like what you’re doing, you won’t succeed. And last night was special for another reason… more than half of these women are using essential oils and they love how they are benefiting their families health and well being. These moms and wives had countless stories to share with me and I just let it all soak in. I even gave my friend, the hostess of this party, a neck massage using the Soothing Rub because she had fallen and twisted her neck during the evening. After a short 5 minute massage she was good to go. And you know what?….I left there feeling totally content with where I have landed in my life. And that is a wonderful feeling!
Have a great day! Jana
