Some days are easy and some days are hard, but some days you really need emotional support.

Today is one of those days for me.  I am just feeling really fragile for no real reason.   I received some criticism, (for something that wasn’t my fault) and I’ve felt terrible all day.  My life is pretty good, I can’t complain.  I work from home, all my needs met, I’m doing well and today I even got to watch my two eldest daughters receive some well deserved awards for school achievement. That didn’t stop that nagging gut feeling, that was bringing me down.

Why such a small thing could get me down is beyond my comprehension, it’s not my normal, but here I am hours later thinking any moment I could cry if I think about it for more than 3 seconds.   The person even called me, to admit it was in fact his fault for not communicating the details after making an exception to usual procedures.  But still I feel low.  this is very out of character for me, I have even prayed for comfort.

The LORD works in mysterious ways.

So I turned to essential oils.  A quick check in a book/app for oils to use and I’m reaching for the diffuser.   Clary Sage, Lavender, Lemon and Lime to the rescue. I put these oils in the diffuser, but later decided to make up a 10mL roller with this same blend.  I also decided to treat myself to a pot of tea in a special set a friend gave me.  After an hour sitting here with the diffuser, It has really lifted my spirits and I and feel the frowns line leaving.

Is it time for you to do some self care today?
