You just need to Get Over it and Move on…
As I was once told… As most of you know by now, I have struggled with my mental health, well, pretty much my entire life. It was approximately 4.5 years ago that my mental health spiraled out of control. I just had a new baby, where postpartum depression was most likely kicking in, on top of all of my other mental health. I knew something had to change or give because I certainly couldn’t continue like this.
Literally, I would sit in my chair all day and cry. I would have the most unrealistic fears, such as a plane would fall out of the sky if my kids were outside playing. I would send my self into completely panic attacks over what most people thought as ” nothing”. I would even get a panic attack just looking at all the things I had to do in a day. Which this often lead to me being the worst wife and mom because I wouldn’t be able to do these things.
Something had to change
So I went to my first essential oils class. My first one was a couple of months after my second son was born. So the fear of leaving him with Dad was out the window. I decided I would go out and check out what the fuss was all about with these “essential oils” I went to the class and I thought this is pretty amazing. But I never really got into how it could really help me.
However, once my mental health was really out of control, I decided I would go back again. This class Blew me away. By fate, I won the lucky prize at the end of the class and it was a free bottle of doTERRA’s Wild Orange. Ashley- who taught the class explained how she struggled with her own anxiety as well and how she was able to use these essential oils to help regulate her emotions. So I said what the heck its worth a try.
Something Life Changing Happened
So I get this oil, it smells fantastic, but could it really work for me? Like really, I was already on my medication from the MD, I had already seen like 5 different counselors. What could this little tiny bottle do that these professionals couldn’t? Let’s be honest it was “Just” an Orange in a bottle- Or so I thought…
So, I first panic attack since I got the oils started. Which was the next morning, because I will be honest, I had them multiple times a day. So the panic attack started, my chest would feel super tight, I would start not breathing properly, and I would feel super hot and angry. So I grabbed this little bottle, put a drop in the palm of my hand and rub them together. I then cupped my nose and my mouth and just started breathing in as deep as I could.
I mean Seconds. My chest started to not feel so tight, I was able to slow my breathing, my body temperature would start to regulate and I didn’t feel so angry. At first, I thought What the Hell is in the little bottle… I couldn’t be just orange juice. How could this little bottle do this? I was stunned for a while. Thought it must be a flook. It must have been just a short panic attack.
So, I waited. Again I would have another panic attack, I would reach for the Wild Orange. To my surprise, this oil helped me again. How incredible. It was then that I started looking more into essential oils. My brain has to work on the science side of things to fully understand what is happening. After a couple of days of looking into doTERRA, I quickly send Ashley a message.
O.M.G. We need to meet. This oil you have given me, has completely transformed my life.
So, we made a meeting where we discussed everything about the business. This is where I got super excited. I wasn’t all for MLM, but the way Ashely explained it, made me excited.
Ashley asked me a question… Why do you want to do this as a business? I didn’t have to think long. I knew right away. It wasn’t even about the money. If these little bottles could completely transform my life, what can they do for everyone else? I wanted everyone to know how amazing these oils were. I wanted everyone to know my story. To know that they are not alone and that there is more help out there than just the MD and therapist.
