Make Over Your Momma: Zig Zagging

Okay moms. Its been a while since I've come to talk to you... but this is something I can't keep to myself any longer. 

I don't know where I heard this term or who came up with it, but I can tell you that its detrimental. It can take over the most organized person and make their day a living nightmare. It plagues us all and I am tired of being quiet about it. I am here to speak out and try to curve the disaster known as "Zig Zagging". Or if you feel more proper- you can call it Chevron-ing?!

Yes, this looks like my 3 year old's self portrait from earlier today, but this could be the key to making your day better, more productive. Let me set the scene...

Exhibit A: You walk into the kitchen and you see the mail. Half of it is to be shredded, one quarter of the pile are coupons that you'll probably never use, and the other bunch might be important but it might also be offers for AARP memberships and pre-paid Visa cards. You take the shredded mail into the place where you keep the AMEX black card offers (wink, wink) and your old insurance cards. You notice that there is a pile of shoes right next to the shredder stack. You divide the shoes up to return them to their home. After carrying two pairs into your husband's closet you notice that half of your socks are in a pile that you deem to be the "missing their mate" pile. You start to sort those socks out and see that three have holes. You deliver those socks to the box of old shirt/socks/towels that you use for who-knows-what. That prompts you to start a load of laundry, again. Because you forgot you started it last night before bed and it was 80 degrees cool at midnight. By now you are probably hungry or thirsty or both. Back to the kitchen you go, where you see the other two-thirds of the mail that you started sorting in the first place.

Exhibit B: There's a deadline. And you have pushed said responsibility back until the last minute (or the "golden hour" as I like to think of it). After making a list of what all needs to be done to accomplish this task and compute the time and effort its going to take, you take a huge huff. 3 hours of work and 1 hour and 45 minutes to do it. Hey, you pulled it off in college and you are way more experienced now- you got this girl! But wait, its not only you that you have to worry about. Your children/spouse suddenly have a dying need to see you, and sit by you, and tell you their hopes and drreams. You are down to 1 hour 33 minutes and 7 units of patience. But you start to feel guilty... if only I had started sooner; I hate to cut my time short with them; did I ever feed them dinner? So you dedicate the next 25 minutes to loving and caring and eating (#priorities). Now you are down to about 60 minutes give or take a few GIFs you come across that you just HAVE TO share and a bathroom break so you can read a blog.

Either case, you need to focus. Usually you'd reach for caffeine right? Maybe a few jumping jacks or something to get your brain awake. What if I told you there was a blend of essential oils that could provide you with all things focus? 
  • Enhances and sustains a sense of focus.
  • Supports efforts of those who have difficulty paying attention & staying on task.
  • Apply to wrists or back of hands & inhale deeply to promote a sense of clarity.
  • Use at work to stay on task or when feeling tired mid-afternoon.
  • Diffuse or drop on a clay pendant & place on a desk or in other key areas in a classroom.
  • Study-time blend.

    If you are anything like me, you'd say:
    "Yeah right. Sounds too good to be true"... 
    "This crazy lady with her snake oils." 
    "If its that good, why haven't I heard of it before now?"

    That's where I was a few years ago. Just living my life, oblivious to how many areas of my life that I was just getting by. I was unfocused, impatient, and zig-zagging my way through life. I happened upon this oil by chance. Since I finally decided to try it and felt so much clarity and so much more confidence, I use it EVERY SINGLE DAY.
    Ask yourself, what's it going to hurt to try? Can it do anything but make your life better... and really, can it get any better than sorting through your AARP membership cards at 35?

    Message me if you want to get on board and get tuned in to a better you...
