I bought a pack of essential oils with lemon, rosemary, cedarwood, eucalyptus, orange, peppermint, lavender, stress relief and more…
I have been using them in various recipes that I got out of eat dirt by Dr. Josh Axe. Today I made deodorant with coconut oil, baking soda and rosemary. Put it in an old container and have cheap good smelling deodorant!
Tomorrow it is going to be my favorite activity with lavender. I am making goat soap the easy way and even adding color and lavender dried flowers to them.
Today was a good day. I painted my kitchen cabinets and the kitchen is so much brighter now! Feels clean! Scrubbed my countertops too and got rid of what I don’t use that was taking up space mainly cds. I am obsessed with Jason MrAz house shows.
I am not always motivated to do jobs around the house or in the gardens so I take the motivation when it comes… and lately because of the CBD oil and other herbal remedies plus the essential oils my motivation level is quite high.
I even applied to two jobs this week that won’t affect my disability if I get it working retail at department stores. Seems chill. Not much pay but right now anything helps!
Today is Padre Pio Feast Day September 23 and he answered a novena prayer I was saying with my daughter in a big way! God is so good!
My disorder is in check right now. I still take my medicines twice a day faithfully and everything else I do on top of it is just supplementation not instead of. I have resigned to the fact that I will be taking Risperdal and Latuda along with Lexapro and my anti-anxiety drugs every day for the rest of my life.
Finding creative ways to make life pleasureable is half the fun, the other half is living my life with a purpose!
Still waiting for several things to happen, my second book should be published 2018, and I will find out hopefully this month if I qualify for permanent disablility or not.
My mom is also having surgery for a knee replacement this next week so appreciate any prayers anyone can muster!
Life is good! Doesn’t have to be a pity party even when I am unmotivated….
