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?
