I often wonder what makes people tick! What is their motivation and drive to get up in the morning and make things happen? For me, there is no question it is my son. He is a bright spark and the joy of my existence. Whilst he tries my patience sometimes, as children are want to do :) he reminds me many times throughout each day to enjoy the spontanaeity of life, to rise to challenges and to pick myself up and brush myself off when things don't necessarily go my way.
There is something huge to be said for the innocent imagination of childhood and the inspiring ability children have to see the impossible become possible, and to imagine what as adults we sometimes believe to be unattainable, as being achievable and in fact normal.
In the society we live in today where success is often measured in monetary reward or in social status, children give us the ability to see through a true and untainted lense that a successful life really is one in which you live with compassion and empathy in your heart towards others and yourself. Where laughter to the point of wetting yourself is often the best medicine and where play is the most important way we can remain youthful, vibrant and useful human beings.
Children also give us a clear picture of how easy it is for our emotional state to be messed with by others, whether they are fraying our nerves or communicating something that hits us directly in the heart, or they are moving swiftly from elated joy and engagement, to stroppy tantrum and red-faced, all out crying fits!
It is important as we grow older to remember and take note of this honest laying bare of emotions we see in children, who have not yet learned to measure their reactions to life's hardships and control or hide, disappointment, fear, happiness, anger, joy or in fact any of the other emotions that as adults we learn to mask for the sake of not being judged or embarrassed, dare I say it being labelled, by other adults looking on.
The masking or hiding for the sake of 'keeping face' of these strong and indeed important emotions is a very real reason why the prevalence of teenage and adult suicide is on the rise, as well as mental health issues and domestic violence. In situations where adults are faced with emotionally challenging experiences in work home and social arenas, but feeling weak, stupid or vulnerable in the sharing of them, and so unable to seek help..it is good to respect and to remodel ourselves on the innocent sharing of these emotions that children do in their day to day lives....as it helps to manage our health on a far deeper level if our emotional health is honestly maintained.
In my journey through life and love lost and found, Relationships broken, friend's who have come and gone, some to other towns, to other friendships, to other lives, by their own hand or by fate's. From girlhood to womanhood, and womanhood to motherhood, the love of parents, being a parent and having them. Losing them too...I have felt the full gammet of emotional highs and lows. I have thought of leaving the world and been very depressed as well as experiencing highs that I never imagined were possible... and somewhere in between I have I believe in my early forties, found a semblance of peace and balance.
This I think because I have had to ...for the sake of my sanity and the health and happiness of my little boy. I some days think I had no real purpose before he came to me to help me see, that all my experiences prior to his birth were to steel me for the strength of purpose and the huge swelling of love that would come into my heart as he came messy into the world.
And with this realising, this growth I have turned to my oils. The essential oils have become an organic and intrinsic part of my search for truth, the right path , and the best health and wellness solutions for me and my family. They have supported us through health issues, protected us from environmental and seasonal threats but most importantly for me, they have bouyed my emotional states to balance and support me in times of difficulty, fatigue, sadness struggle and lacking motivation. They have helped to pull me out of days when I felt hopeless, to gear me up when I felt I didnt have the energy to go to the next task of the day and to sync me in with my little man...so that we could grow and learn together. I am so excited for the onward journey. My son is interested in the oils now too, at 2.5 years old he asks for his roller when he is feeling anxious and smiles when I offer him peppermint if he is getting crabby.
I love the man he is becoming and feel equipt to positively enjoy the journey with him..
