Winter Harvest at Highland Flats Farm

I just returned from Young Living’s Winter Harvest in Naples Idaho at the Highland Flats Farm!!

What an amazing experience.  I got to experience our seed to seal process up close and personal.  I’m super proud of myself for stepping outside of my comfort zone.  I’m  certainly not the outdoorsy kinda girl.  Add to that the fact that I hibernate in winter and you’ll realize this was nothing short of a miracle.  And guess what?  I had a blast.

I got to drive a Skid Steer twice with two different attachments.  The first time I used it outside with a tree cutting attachment (that’s probably not the correct name but you get the point.)  It was so cool. See video of me driving. The second time I drove indoors with a scoop (again not proper name) attachment used to scoop up the tree materials and transport them to the large machine where the material is steamed to create the essential oils.

This is where we slept and ate.  Kinda reminds you of the show MASH from the 80s.

My Confessions Day 25

My Confessions #25: Vacatining with family 🎭😱😂😰😆

This week I’m on vacation with family.  Surely I’ve got something to confess, right?   Watch here

My Confessions Day 24

My Confessions is back! Day/#24. Expectations, Emotions and Set-backs… Oh My!

Watch tonight’s confession here.   So you probably noticed I missed last week. Things got pretty hectic for me last week, So I didn’t make it on as you’ll hear me discuss in tonight’s scope.  All that matters is that I am back tonight.  Please bare with me as I try to get my mojo for confessing back.  I spent the day running errands and knocking things off of my to-do list so and  I really struggled with what to confess today.  You will notice that as I start out by faith I gradually began to open-up about what’s really on my heart and mind.  While this may not appear perfect, this is me and my process.

As always I thank you for joining me.   I hope to see you back here next week, Thursday nights at 11ish ET.

Smooches,

Angel O

Hope you had a Love-filled Valentine’s Day.  Did you buy into the commercialization or keep it low key?  There’s no wrong answer here.  So people really do need to have a special day to remind them not to take those they cherish and love for granted.

I invite you to join me live on Periscope  @diffusingtheTEA

 

Day 19 of My Confessions

Day 19 of My Confessions: the struggle with weight and food addiction🍽🎂🍦🍪

Watch video Confession here

Watch today’s Confession where I share my struggle with weight-loss.  I’m convinced that not all weight is a result of eating habits.  Some weight gain can be symptomatic of other factors going on in your life. Stress, boredom, lack of passion/focus and emotions are just a few of the weight-gain triggers for me.  At t he end of the video I show how I get moving each day.

 

 

 

Day 18 of My Confessions

Day 18 of My Confessions: to thine own self be true! 🎭🎭🎤 I know who I am🎤 unmasked and unashamed💯

Watch today’s scope here.  If you recall back when I first started confessing I briefly mentioned that my recent attempt at taking a personality test resulted unnatural combination which amounted to masked behavior.  This bothered me greatly and I was determined to go back over the test.   I decided to spend some time making sure that I read and took the test properly and also answered questions based on my natural preferences and Not learned behavior.

Take the GEMS test for yourself and put your results in the Comments

Day 17 of My Confessions

Day 17 of My Confessions: Mardi Gras Inspired ⚜🎷🎺🎭time to stop glorifying bad behavior 💯

Watch tonight’s confession here.  Have you ever flipped through magazines and amused yourself with the commentary of various fashion police or watched shows critiquing celebrities every move?  The truth is we have become so desensitized to bad behavior that it’s easy to laugh at it or dismiss the fact that some words are just plain mean.  As adults we teach kids to be nice, so it’s time we take our own advice.  Words have meaning and words hurt.
