Many of us think about personal changes and new chances when we are in the firs week of January. This happens from year to year but most of our wishes and promises to our selves stays unfulfilled. This mostly happens because we want the changes and results to come fast so we start to push ourselves and the ones we love to some utopian idea or view. It causes stress and frustration almost every time and then we drop it and feel disappointed that we couldn’t reach the goal. We feel even worse when others who also began the changes are doing well and speaks about it loud and proud. Funny thing is we do it over and over again every year without stopping and asking our selves why we are failing. There are always two easy answers for that. Basically there are people who blame themselves or those who blame the environment. But easy answers never solve complicated questions for example why did I have decided to reach that goal in the first place and how would that goal make me happier, stronger or just healthier in everyday life. Am I doing this for myself or I am trying to become someone else entirely because I don’t appreciate me as individual? Am I ready to make the changes and to except the gifts of life or do I try to run away from new inspirations by setting unrealistic goals and falling into self-pity when it doesn’t work. These are the questions which can help to make a new year’s resolution or at least encourage to think about it before deciding what the goal actually means to you and your environment.
Last year I have decided I wanted to learn as much as my time allows me about the essential oils and there were months when I haven’t read a line about it but then I was still using them and valuing the results which were sometimes very surprising or also quit questionable. Today I’m still learning about it and the goal has transformed into journey which has been full of new experiences and wisdom. I still feel that there are so much information to learn but I have seen how sceptic people change their minds about the oils and how different the stories can sound. Most of them are very positive and people actually begin to ask about the oils even if only few months ago they were blocking the information as some marketing trick. I have never had a goal just to make people buy the product. I was always trying rather to help them on some health struggles which everyone has and showing the alternative choices. The feedback can take some time but when it comes in a positive way back to you there is no greater feeling then one that you know you helped someone.
Speaking about gifts and New Year resolutions… Newly I discovered Myrrh essential oil which is one of the oldest products used in human history. Today I read that it was mentioned 152 in a bible but the story goes way longer and one has look at the ancient Egypt to learn the old sources. Today’s scientific researches show amazing results about this oil and it explains a lot about why it was valued more than gold thousands of years earlier. My goal for January is to use it for my face skin and to see how it works. I read quit a lot about its power of healing wounds and anti-ageing qualities so I am looking forward how it will work for my skin. There is very nice and informative article for those of you who wants to learn more about this oil which you can read online: https://thetruthaboutcancer.com/myrrh-essential-oil/ .
