Unlocking Self-Love: Tips to Build Inner Confidence and Achieve Business Success as a Parent


As a busy working mom, it can be tough to balance the demands of building a business while also taking care of yourself. Self-care is crucial, especially as we get older and our bodies and minds require more attention. So, how can you learn to love yourself while building a business or just living these days? 

Here are some tips:

1. Set achievable goals: It's easy to get overwhelmed when trying to build a business or run a household. Setting small and achievable goals can not only give you a sense of accomplishment but it can also help you avoid burnout. Make sure to celebrate each goal achieved, no matter how small.

2. Prioritize self-care: When building a business & life too, it's easy to neglect self-care. Remember, taking care of yourself is not only good for your health but it can also help you become more productive and motivated. Whether it's taking a bubble bath, going for a walk, or reading a book for half an hour, make sure you prioritize your self-care routine.

3. Surround yourself with positivity: Surrounding yourself with positive people who uplift you can make a world of difference when it comes to building your business and loving yourself. Join support groups, engage with like minded people, and take advantage of the resources available to you from your business community.

4. Use essential oils: Essential oils can have a powerful influence on our emotions and can help us manage stress and emotions. Young Living has many blends specifically designed to help with these issues. Using essential oils as part of your daily routine can help you feel more relaxed, focused, and uplifted.

5. Believe in yourself: Self-doubt can be a major obstacle when building a business, but it's important to remember that every successful business owner started somewhere. Believe in yourself and your abilities, and trust that you can achieve your goals!

Remember, building a business is not easy, but it is possible to build a successful business while also loving and taking care of yourself. Prioritize your self-care, surround yourself with positivity, use essential oils, and believe in yourself!

These 6 blends are ones I created for me or loved ones during my YL Journey.  Using mine & others opinion the Best Essential oils on the planet.  While combining my Love of Multitasking and Ease of use, 
these were ideas to support my path to my Best Wellness.
Woosah for helping me Calm, Center and be Cool in most situations, is a Combination of All 6 Essential oils of the Feelings kit.

Spicy Joy for overall Body & Mind Support at the same time is a Combo of Thieves & Joy

Mermaid Combines Valor for Courage, Lavender for Calm, Citrus Fresh to Cleanse and Refresh the Flow.

Springtime in a Roller for Reminding me of the Joys, Aromas and Freshness of Spring is a combo of Joy & Neroli

Hope, Joy & Gratitude were combined together as we entered 2021 feeling like we could all use a little more of those 3 words, feelings and blends.  Bonus: it has kept me pest free even in summer evenings on the river.

Happy November & where did 2022 go?

Happy November & where did 2022 go?


Happy Holly Day Season.  Where did Summer and almost Fall go?  Anyone else feel like that too?  I realized when November came and We didn't even take the time to decorate for Halloween except for the Candy Cauldron, it's time to take some Woosah time.

For me that doesn't always mean I get to do absolutely nothing.  It means I make the time to reevaluate what's truly important.  What would I and we Truly want more of in our lives.  What can I and we do with what I have, where I am to do more of what we love and less of what we don't.  All while supporting a balance for our Best Mind, Body, Spirit and Home. These are things I personally work through and I appreciate the ones that I get to work through with as well.  I love watching us all grow and shine in to our Best.  Laughing, smiling, navigating, shifting and making the most out of the Gift of life, each and every day.

That being said, sometimes we just got to do stuff for the fun of it.  So I did, I did something I've longed to do, advised to do and just wasn't ready.  TBH, it could have been all bad for my mental wellness I lacked the confidence and belief in my true authentic self, back then.   Today, If you haven't heard I entered the Fab over 40 Contest just for the fun of it, to get out of my comfort zone and see what was possible.  Y'all to say that I am grateful and humbled is an understatement, more like speechless.  Right now I am 4th in my group and made it in the Top 10 voting Thursday for Top 5.   Thank you if you already know about this and are Voting.  The Grand prize could truly bless our family and give a much needed Spa-cation too.  Great part is if you choose to do Hope votes they go to National Breast Cancer Foundation.  And if not, no worries there is Free voting every 24 hrs.  Thank you again to all who are sharing, voting and got me here.  Truly couldn't do it without you.  The Final Vote is December 15th...Who knows what's possible.

Btw last few things, New Creations out in the main Shopping site, updating Crystal Aroma Creations, Designs and Crystal Aroma Babies ongoing.  You can check those out if you like here  Even a lil something for my fellow Die hard Giants Fans, with some humor.

If you didn't know, Yes Yes Yes I am still with Young Living and my lifestyle is mainly YL products with a balance for the budget.  If you would love to know more and of course join the team as a customer or brand partner more is always merrier.   We have our monthly YL Q&A where we share & ask the questions to support our lives our best way.  The links for my favorites can also be found on the main site by clicking on Shop My Favorite YL Oils Links  If not no worries

As always I hope you have a fabulous Day and weekend.  The next scheduled in person will be in Brentwood at the Legion on December 3rd, will let you know if more are scheduled.  Hope everyone enjoys their Holiday season.

Make it a Great Day


I did a thing tonight...OMGoodness

Thankful for Family, Friends, Loyal Customers, Pittsburg Proud, City of Pittsburg, Pittsburg Community Art Foundation, COP-Parks & Recreation, the people and community. 

Tonight I Got out of my Comfort Zone and I am using my voice again.  These last few years have been a Big wake up call of Do I really want this and if not, What do I want?  What would I love and What can I do with what I have, where I am.  I love doing this, it feels good to share my heart, soul and passion with all those who join in.   Thank you, I truly appreciate each and everyone of you.

I have found more focus.  Each day is a new blessing and I allow myself to Blossom more and more.  Grateful for the Online Communities I found a long the way so I stay connected within the Busyness of life.  Connection is a Big thing for Mental Wellness.

Blessed with our in person community (Friends who become Family) that support us in many ways on this journey.  From pushing each other in the pool to reaching out to check in, to showing up, sharing Good Times, Vibes and all the in betweens.  

All things align in Divine time, it truly does.  At least I am Thankfully and Gratefully finding out piece by piece. Do you resonate with that in your life?  I know the first time one of my friends, mentors, coaches asked me that, I didn't.  I wanted to, I said it and yet I didn't fully understand and feel in to it yet.

Today the more I allow the ebb and flow of life to show me the next right thing and the next right thing.  The more life becomes of course that happened.  Of course that showed up, of course it was there and so one. Meaning the more I Focus on what I would love and the good in me & life, the more of it that shows up with ease & grace.  I am so thankful for my full journey to here and now.  I am who I am and where I am, Authentically me.

Some of you may or may not know I grew up & lived all over Northern California from SF / East Bay area(Pittsburg, Antioch, Clayton, Concord, Hayward, Castro Valley, Vallejo, Fairfield) and the Sierra Foothills too.  And I have drove and visited Small & Big towns all over California and Some Beyond Cali too.  

There is something about the Diversity and inclusion of Pittsburg, Old town mixed with some New school too.  Learning and Yearning to be better today than I was yesterday with collaboration and encouragement all things are possible.  

More to follow in the next couple weeks and so proud of myself for Shifting my Shitake.   Are you a Vendor Artist, Creator near me?  Have we worked together before at an event?  Would you love options other than Event after Event?   Do you Love Collaboration?  Do you Love Art & Creating?  If you'd like me to keep you in mind as I am working on something that could help many of us along the path.  Please PM or Email me you are interested.
