DoTerra Essentail Oil HELPS me sleep!

I don't know why it took me so long to do this (because I'm a believer in Essential Oil), but I can finally sell DoTerra Essential Oils!

Order anything from this website:

A few years ago, I went to a yoga class where the instructor used DoTerra Essential Oils. She told us her husband had always had a very difficult time sleeping, so he started putting a few drops of DoTerra Serenity Blend on one foot, and a few drops of Lavender on the other foot. Now he sleeps like a baby. I tried it and it totally worked! Okay, well, admittedly I didn't sleep like an actual baby, but I really felt a difference in how easily I fell asleep and how deeply I slept.

I just ordered another bottle of Serenity and of Lavender. I can't wait use them!

Brilliant TED TALK: Fake it till you make it!

I'm sure you've heard the phrase, "Fake it till you make it". . . .

My friend sent me this TED talk the other day. The only thing she said was "watch it until the end," and boy, am I glad I did! It's brilliant!

In it, Amy Cuddy, also a TBI Survivor, discusses how your body language shapes not only how others see you, but how you see yourself.

She says after her injury, she felt like she was living a fraud; that she was "not supposed to be here" (in graduate school, etc). For so long, this is exactly how I felt about my injury. All I could think about was my injury - - feeling like I had to explain my shortcomings. TBI consumed me. Thankfully, I don't feel like this anymore.
Part of my recovery was learning to explore like with a traumatic brain injury: what are my limitations. Can I still be happy? Can I accomplish my goals?

Amy Cuddy says that she learned to not only fake it till you make it, but fake it till you become it. Just watch the video as she explains it much better than I ever will:
