This picture brings me so much joy and was taken by my Uncle Bob Vincent. This spot right here in Southeast Alaska changes all the time, depending on the weather, the sunshine, the boats, the wildlife and every picture of this exact spot will be different... there are so many layers and variables to its' beauty. I have been marinating on a quote for a while now.
"When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves."
~ Victor Frankle
This last year has been really full and really tough. Some very special people left this earth, which left my heart so broken.. Learning to find a new normal from transitioning to a new home... learning to be a mother of two toddlers, quitting my job of 10 years, and really pursuing personal development while growing my DoTerra business, all while battling some major health issues.... I don't say all of this to be pitied... I say these things out loud so that I see how much I have walked through and to validate that life is not easy, and I can pause, breathe it all in, let it all out and give myself grace. This life is a gift and I need to remind myself of that daily when I am living in the mundane, it is there that I change and grow and make the most progress.
I have wanted to grow in my DoTerra business, and inspire, educate and empire my tribe and my leaders, I have often focused on the wrong things, and really honed in on the results I want, rather then evaluate my process and where I need to develop and grow. I have wrestled this last year and been frustrated and discouraged and then passionate and joyful. Its like a roller coaster of emotions, however, the constant has been change.. It has been uncomfortable most of the time, but oh so rewarding. This last month was such a gift, to grow and encourage my team, push through some huge blocks and hit a goal I have had my eye on since I started. When I was reflecting on what it took to get there, I realized that it was not the title that mattered, it was the journey that brought the sweetest gifts, because it wasn't easy, it was hard, and it required me to become quite comfortable with being uncomfortable... I treasure this life and all that it has.
