Look familiar? I think most of us women, whether we're momming our kids, our partner or ourselves, feel like this sometimes...if not most of the time!
I've been thinking a lot lately about the power of women. The past few years I've really paid attention to who shows up in my life. And I've met some amazing women and moms. Women who have been through shared journeys of domestic abuse and came through the storm stronger and more whole than they could have imagined. Moms who show up every day with a fierce love and advocacy for their children with atypical needs, even though they get weary from the struggle. Women who lift up and support other women, helping them achieve their goals, make changes in their lives, or simply spread love and joy where ever they go.
Many of these women I have met because of my journey with doTERRA. I have been fortunate to meet or get connected with so many truly awesome women I probably never would have met otherwise.
Women are the drivers of change, especially in our homes and our families. We tend to be the primary decision-makers for our household. Just take a minute to consider what that means for you and your family when you look at these statistics:
Not only do we rely on and support each other, we tend to influence, and more importantly, DECIDE what goes in, on, and around our bodies, & those of our family. We are more often than not the gate keepers to what comes into our homes, what goes on our family's plates. You guys, that is POWERFUL!
What an awesome opportunity we have to truly make positive choices for ourselves and our families! We have the power to:
We have such a vibrant community of women here, on this blog, my A Life That Glows health and wellness group, nationally and even globally! Just look at the past few months: #metoo, #timesup, #leanin, not to mention the amazing, strong women and girls who have stepped up to speak out against school violence. So much of the positive change that is happening is led by women, of all ages.
We all have our own little corner of the world, our small sphere of influence, our own ways to connect. We are so powerful because we connect, we care, we give, we pay it forward, we lift each other up. I am so honored to be a position to share and partner with so many amazing, powerful, like-minded women.
I am so thankful for all the women in my communities, the communities that we are creating together, the positive changes we are bringing to our own selves, our families, and those we touch.
So I wanted to give a shout out to the ladies, the mommas, and doTERRA. doTERRA is truly women-driven. It is built of moms helping other moms, women sharing health solutions, women building businesses, moms making better choices for their families and sharing with others how to do the same.
If you aren't an essential oiler, that's ok. I get that it's not for everyone. We can still be friends. If you are, thank you for joining me. If you want to be, I can help you get started. And if you are one of the few who want to be part of a women-centered, change-agent, health-loving business, we should chat!
Happy weekend to you all,
I'm Tonia, a Midwesterner transplanted to Colorado. I'm a mom of two lovely littles, a yoga instructor, DIY-er, teacher, stay at home mom, and a doTERRA Wellness Advocate. I blog about a little bit of all of these and everything in between!
