Super Sunday, Superbowl

th

 

Hey guys, I imagine most of you are at the super market buying chips and salsa right now prepping for “Game Day 2017“! If you are a huge fanatic about the Superbowl every year then it’s your day. I on the other hand really don’t care about football. I do celebrate Superbowl Sunday though. Weird, right? Not actually, a lot of people don’t watch football any other time. Yet, we all jump on the band wagon on this day. With a beer in our hand reaching for a buffalo wing in a room filled with friends. We all watch with anticipation for the half time show and the multi million dollar commercials the game brings with it every year.

This year has been different. What I mean by that is there is some talk of a huge terrorist attack floating around the web. If you have not heard or witnessed it yet, just type it in your Google bar and see what pops up. It is kinda scary what has been said. Not that I am a doomsday prepper or whatever, I have just seen some signs revolving around the Superbowl today. I don’t remember in years past, the crazy advertising and hipe that has been extreme this past week. Also, with the early show starting at 12pm eastern time. Come on that is six hours early. I am not going to consume my whole day with this. It is still Sunday and it is supposed to be a day of rest. You know “The Sabbath”. The reason I am writing about this at all is so you can be aware of what is going on in our world. There are evil people in the world who desire chaos. Let’s not give them any of our attention!

 “What consumes you mind takes all you time!

Instead take sometime right now and pray. Pray for everyone there, pray for the teams and their players, pray for peace and God’s protection. Pray for the Lord to have grace and mercy on us all. Let’s give Him thanks for His awesome love for each of us! And thank him for the Superbowl and time with friends and family. I am going to be celebrating football today just like you.I am kinda excited to hang out with friends and enjoy some good beer and wings! Who are you rooting for? Leave it in the comments and we will see who is right?I pray that you took will have a fabulous day where ever you are and what ever you are doing.

Enjoy Super Sunday,

So What? My Message.

th

I was thinking about my message today. What is it I want to get out into to world? What am I so passionate about that I can not hold it back no matter what? My message is my business, it’s what God put me on this earth to share with everyone. Figuring out my “gift” was fairly easy considering I always love to write. So writing it is. I remember when I was 11 years old at my Grandma’s house (where I often spent a lot of time) always typing on the typewriter, making “fake” newspapers and writing poems. Basically, everything and anything that involved writing I did. I would tell everyone in my family that I was NOT going to be a reporter, I was going to be a journalist. I even tried to explain to my father that one day I wanted to be homeless so I could write the truth about it because I will have experienced it. So, ya know my “gift” is writing. I never stopped writing. I have always had journals, always created something that involved writing. Today, I asked myself the BIG question.

WHAT IS MY MESSAGE?

Upon jotting down somethings that were not my message this is how I found it.

So what if I have lost over 10 homes in my adult life?

So what if, I failed to keep a stable job for longer than 5 years?

So what if, I was on welfare most of my adult life?

So what, I have been broke more than I have had a substantial amount of money in the bank?

So what if, I made some really bad stupid choices?

So what if, I pretend to live in a reality that I desire to create?

You know WHY? Because, if I had not gone through or had not experienced any of that stuff I would not have the message I have now to get out to the world.

MY MESSAGE IS:

*I want to inspire people through my writing to have courage, trust God, believe in themselves and miracles, chase their dreams, know and understand that going through hard things is sometimes good, it helps mold people into a better version of themselves. I want people to see me as REAL- AUTHENTIC (and just because it’s a cool word to use right now)- WHOLE-LOVING and KIND-HEARTED.

 

From my experiences I believe I can convey a message that will speak to others truthfully. I can share the raw emotions attached to hard times and good times. I can share how I have leaned into God to carry me when I could not go any further. I can share my creativity and love of travel, tiny home living, my passion for Alaska, and my dreams of traveling the country. My crazy sense of style along with my very extreme attitudes. There is so much I have to say. If you are ready to jump on board and keep up to date with all that my biz has to offer, then please sign up on my facebook and here on my blog.

Hooping Hoopla!

hula-hoop-1

 

So, I decided a month ago that I would begin hooping. Part of the reason was because of my new dreads! I figured if I was to become a member of the dread head culture club then I better start hooping. Well, I have done some hooping here and there, not as much as I would like. Just to say, I am not really any good at it yet. I am inspired by those who hoop to music and make it look so easy. In truth it is very hard and a skill one must learn. I made up my mind that I am going to master this skill. I used to think when I wasn’t good at something naturally it just wasn’t for me. Now, I accept that I may not be “good” at something at first, but that doesn’t mean I should give up. As, goofy as I might look when I am outside of my RV trying to hoop, it’s okay. I am learning and it’s way fun too! If you haven’t checked out You Tube for some fun hooping inspiration you should! There are amazing videos of very talented people.

Fun Hooping Video

Sara Janssen Hooping! (she’s my favorite)

Starting today September 15, 2016 I am doing a 30 day challenge! I challenge myself to hoop everyday for 20 minutes a day. I am going to record my hooping time and commit to the 30 day challenge. This will ensure that I am on the right path to achieving my goal! I hope some of you will join me if you are a hooper or a person who has always wanted to learn. Please posts pics in the comment section below of your hoop and yourself and I will share on my facebook and instagram!

Have an awesome fun day and let’s HOOP!–Amy

Play on Words

Yesterday, I struggled so hard. It really was a tough day. I pushed and pushed for positivity all day long but, by the end of the night what happened was just awful. I blew up! That’s right it all exploded. I screamed, I cried, I doubted myself. The worst part was the empty feeling of being lost. My kids have been just mean lately. Let alone living in a motel. Just life. I am looking at it as a positive experience really. I am writing more and focusing on how to build my business. All great things. But, at the same time my kids are hurt and sad. Let alone so angry at me and this life they are in. I stepped back a few days ago and took a look in the mirror and realized I was the reason for their discord. I raised them that way. No, I am not the reason they are mean. But, I have been negative and my thoughts and actions in my life have been poured out on them for 20 years. It sucks really bad when I realized this. On the bright side of it, I can change it. I am changing the way I am. Little by little I see myself growing and maturing.

I had nightmares the night before and it had such a huge impact on my day yesterday. I am sort of trying so hard to change that I am not allowing myself the freedom to feel the normal feelings that I need to feel.

I have been taking notes and words have been jumping off pages and blogs and from everywhere as they do for most writers. That felt really good. Yes, I am a writer. That is what I do. Anyway, words like, happy, hippy, fun , loving. awesome, tribe, rejuevenate, freedom, cleanse, hoop, jump, play, travel, serve, honor, wonder, space, light, compassion,art, crazy, determination, truth, integrity,authentic, present and so on. You get where this is going. Right? I do. These words are a tattoo on my soul. This is my change. Let me forever live these words and be respectful enough to carry them properly. Words are everything. We must be careful with them and live them, love them, and honor them. That is just what I am trying to do right now. Changing. Through these words let my life be enlightened! I just wanted to share this because as much as, I have been saying from the beginning of this year that this was a huge year for me and I am expecting change. It is happening, surely. Sometimes slow even to a crawl. Paying attention to our minds and thoughts. That is the hardest part but, I am learning. I am determined and I will succeed!

So, I am getting an RV and heading out the vast unknown to me, USA. To see some really awesome places, meet some really awesome people and just experience life. I want my kids to be with me and who knows God does work miracles! But, I know I am meant to do this. It was something I have been dreaming of for 20+ years and now is the time. By the way my birthday was last week and I turned 40, so yeah, I’m ready! I am going to be in Utah for September for sure! I am planning on Texas in August. We will see I might just toss a coin and see where it lands. My business will take off, I know it and I am expecting some good sh*t to happen here shortly. I am reading my Bible again and loving the Lord!

focus

I am just letting GO! Releasing the struggle and embracing the unknown. The RV is coming and so are my dreams. I will be starting my YouTube channel soon! Please check it out: Lotus Flower Evolution. I may redo my website. But, I know I am going to be writing a lot more. Pray for my fam! Please, I really want my kids to see and know that they can experience love, joy and peace in their lives. I will always be praying hard for them! But, they need some extra help right now. I am also, working on being a kid again! Ready or not here I come! Stay tuned!

Hey guys, I want to make this week all about essential oils! Fun, right? I will blog everyday this week and that is a big deal for me because a lot of times I just blog whenever I feel like it. So, I am making a commitment to blog everyday this week, if you want to help me be accountable just send me a message on facebook, Lotus Flower Evolution!

Let’s get to it. My morning routine with my essential oils has changed since I first started using them. I only began using essential oils in September 2015. I started out with maybe three oils at first. So, I did not really have a routine. I was putting Wild Orange in my H2O all day long and I think maybe using Melaluca on my face for acne. Anyway, I have evolved now and I actually have a routine. I wake up and smell coffee of course! I must have coffee! My plan is to eventually ween myself off and it is not impossible but, for now it is my first thing in the morning need.

The very first thing I do besides the coffee, is a fill a  diffuser a frind let me borrow with essential oils. It depends on the morning but, a typical morning begins with Peppermint, Wild Orange and Melalucca. This smells awesome and it wakes me up!

Next, drink a glass of H2O and add Lemon essential oil to it. About 3 or 4 drops. Then, I take all my vitamins and supplements. I will share what vitamins I take for another post though.

Then, I clean my fave with witch hazel and apply a face lotion I made myself, it contains Coconut Oil and Frankincense. I love it!!! I use it throughout the day actually, I have seen a massive difference in my skin since I began to use this daily!

Depending on the morning I may or may not shower but, when I am getting dressed I rub on a mixture of Aloe, Lavender essential oil, Lemon essential oil, and Lemongrass essential oil. This tightens and firms my skin. I put it on my legs and stomach.

Next, I put on my homemade deodorant which, consists of Arrowroot Powder, Baking Soda, Melalucca essential oil, Coconut Oil, and Lavender essential oil.

I almost forgot that yes, I do brush my teeth! I do use a toothpaste that consists of Baking Soda and  Essential Oils but, I do not make it. I purchase this amazing toothpaste! You can find out more if you click here to buy this awesome toothpaste!

I do make our mouthwash though and, that consists of distilled H2O, Peppermint essential oil, Lemon essential oil, and Spearmint essential oil.

Before, finishing up I rub a grounding blend of essential oils on my heart and Frankincense on  my forehead and back of neck. it depends on the morning though which blend I put on.

Sometimes, I need focus, sometimes I need sunshine and sometimes I need motivation!

That is the wonderful amazing thing about essential oils, there is an oil for everything! That sums up my morning routine be sure to check back tomorrow for my night time routine! I love sharing with others the magic and alchemy of essential oils! God, put them on earth for us to use and each oil has a purpose. They are amazing and once you begin to incorporate them into your life you will never go without them, I promise!

Have a GREAT MONDAY!

Dreams..Life…and A Future of Whatevers…

So this week has been strange and a little testy, I have been working a lot which on the upside of things I have really enjoyed. It made me start thinking of my future more and of dreams I have tried to ignore or put on a shelf. It has been a week of really looking deep into my soul. What is my life? What do I dream of it looking like? What does my future hold? All very good questions. I have been going to sleep every night asking God to reveal it to me or just give me a clue. Of course, I have heard nothing, yet. Not that I am not paying attention, I am honestly, asking. I am just thinking on these things more because I was wondering is life really this hard? If you have read my previous blog posts you know how much I love the Lord and seek Him and desire to draw close to Him. It seems like lately I have had people who read this blog come up to me and say, ” Wow, You have been through so much. Oh my God.” and I just think to myself, ” No not really. That’s just life.” I don’t think I have been through anything more than any other person. We all go through stuff it may just look different in each of our lives. The only reason I write about it is to encourage someone else, that you can get through it. I also, like to write. But, blogs fade and all this stuff will disappear one day and no one will ever know that I wrote about my life in such detail. Anyway, I am thinking a lot. My thoughts are crushing me and I am trying to make them be obedient but, it is so hard. I am wondering what life will look like in five years for me with grown kids and being 43. I ask myself am I being selfish when my imagination paints pictures of what I would like it to look like? Am I who I think I am or am I trying to imagine who I want to be? I know this is kinda a selfish posts but, I know that I am not the only one with these thoughts. I imagine myself taking on more challenges in the future, pushing my comfort zones forcing me to be bolder and more independent crushing my fears. I imagine an Amy who steps through a door and on the other side she is confident and hopeful able to achieve all of her dreams, forcefully taking life head on and enjoying every moment. Not that I haven’t enjoyed my life I have. There are memories so near and dear to my heart I will hold on tight to them for the rest of my life. I have learned so much from others in the past year that has made me grow and I have watched them be an example to me of what I desire to model to others. I am so thankful for friends and family. So, I guess what I am asking is…..do I really take the chance and go after my dreams now, create the life I desire and the future I pray for? Or do I continue to push through each day right now just trying to survive. Just hoping I can do it one more day. I am praying for an answer.

Goals for Our Homeschool….

  • Name It
  • What do I want our homeschool to look like?
  • To lay a biblical foundation for our children.
  • To teach a life of service and obedience.
  • To teach discernment.
  • To develop good character traits.
  • To learn how to learn together.
  • Teach my children how to have time with the Lord. And how important it is.

 

Some goals just for me:

Prayer ( make sure that I have time alone with the Lord and be faithful to it.)

Exercise (to feel better and have more energy.)

Learn balance in everything- Work, housework,homeschool, me time, time with God, husband time, etc.

Set practical goals (do not think I can do a lot of things all at once) 

Our basic homeschool plan is to do- Math, Language Arts everyday, we are working on a year plan learning about the Founding Fathers, Freedom and Civil War. The Lord has really put it on my heart to go back in time with them and really dig deep into our Constitution, Bill of Rights, and Declaration of Independence. We will explore all of the Founding Father’s and study who they were and talk about where America is today. This is an excellent time for us to do this with such an important election approaching. Second semester is when will take on the Civil War. I plan to incorporate all of our language arts, science, and Math to an extent. Other subjects for my 10th grader include Dave Ramsey financial, Life Prep for Homeschooled Teenagers. And for my 6th and 8th graders we will do Dr. James Dobson, Preparing for Adolesence. Of course, Bible and Writing are in our plan. Hopefully and prayerfully the Lord will provide a viola for my 11 yr. old who really wants to play and my 16 yr. old plans to take piano lessons with my son planning on playing drums. I will write a weekly end to our week on Fridays to be accountable for our lessons and to show what fun stuff we might come up with.
