What is Clarity?...



It is super late as I write this.  Maybe not for everyone, but for me it's 11:34 pm, on a Monday night.  The first Monday night of me going back to school/work.  It's also the first day my child saw his new school (middle school) schedule.  While he saw this way earlier in the day, the realization that momma can't fix it has been traumatic.

He wanted classes with certain kids, lunch with other kids, and socialization times with a mix of both groups.  For the first time in his "school career" I can't make it happen.

In his defense, that may be my fault.  I'm always doing what's best for my child, for the last 6 years (K-5th) , at least in my opinion.  No, I didn't just fight so he got what he wanted, I fought as a parent who raised the child and didn't let someone else tell me I'm wrong without a good argument as to why my mindset was incorrect.  Statistics don't work on me.

But now, I am in a position where mom voice becomes more muted.  I, like most other middle school moms, (total me assumption), really we don't have a voice anymore at this stage. (Please speak up if you feel different).

At this point in our children's social, emotional and academic life, we are starting to lose control.  There are people who have lived through more, experienced more, educated themselves (literally) for more, and have hoped for more, so I have to trust that.

This is so, so ,so, very hard.

Here's what I have.

CLARITY

Clarity to know I, his dad and he will fight.

But we don't have to.

At least not for a clear mind.

Yep, you guessed it oils are involved.  I mean this is an oil series, after all.

And it is called Clarity, and I could go into every ingredient, I won't.

I will at  a later time.

What I will say is that sometimes you need to have a little breath every now and again, especially as a child, and this oily blend helps do that.

It also aids in focus, remembrance, inner peace. stability, stamina, and motivation, and relaxation.

Yes, I am talking about what it does for kids! I will reach the adult later in time, since this is a kids series).

Bottom, short line, this blend's name doesn't mean one specific thing, just like tired doesn't always mean the same thing.

Is this write up (blog) vague.  Yes!  But it's because I think we all need to reach out to new understandings of how and what we do help.

Ask me all your questions and don't be shy.

Clarity is the name of the game.  So don't go too far, because after application and a “mom and me” discussion, his view point on new friends and a new school, has nothing to do with the words that came out of my mouth.

A little mystery never hurt anyone, even if it is about oily goodness.

I'll be back soon!

National Coffee Day!!

Something you should know about me, I LOVE my coffee. It gets me going every morning and gives me a pick-me-up when I really need a push to get through the day and I seriously don't function well without it.  So much so, it's kind of become a running joke with my family and friends. In fact,  my best friend, Miss Courtney , would greet me at the door in silence with a cup of coffee if I'd been up late the night before. She gets me. I'm drinking some now as I type this. When I started Intermittent Fasting, I was relieved to find that I didn't have to give up my coffee. I just had to switch to unsweetened and black, which wasn't too big of a deal, because I had completed a sugar detox a couple years before discovering IF. Through the detox, I became somewhat taste-sensitive to sugar where, depending on the food item, a little was almost too much for me anymore. As a result, my coffee was mainly just a little bit of cream anyway. It makes

Cough Tea

It’s that time of year.  The time that, to me, is worse than spring. The time that brings the fall cough!  You know the one. The one that never really goes away and you’ve had so long you’re not sure when it first appeared. It’s the same one that you don’t want to go to the doctor for because you’re positive it’s just something that has blown about with the change of seasons.  I like to call it the “allergy faker.”  Like Carly with her constant sinus fight, I have the constant cough fight. And although I always win, the shorter I have to deal with it the better.   I also have to think about the fact that I have a child and he and his friends are in and out constantly, and I’d really prefer they not share anything with me. Lord knows no parent wants to start that viscous circle of sick.  So, that’s where my favorite cough-away recipe comes in. It’s delicious, aids sleep and it’s for adults only!  Wellness Tea  and Whiskey, two new best friends.   Th

Getting Mono Meant No Caffeine Ever!

Caffeine, one word, so many meanings. Coffee, soda, tea, energy drinks, one shots, chocolate...caffeine is everywhere.  While this is a great blessing for most people, for a few of us out there it's terrible.  Especially when it's suddenly just taken away.   Welcome to my world when I was just past 18 and getting ready for freshman year of college. A little back story.  We moved from Indiana to Kansas the summer before my senior year was to start.  So, as if the life of a teenager isn't already "hard" enough, add in all new everything before what is supposed to be the best year of school ever.  You guessed it, I hated everything and everyone at this point.  Not even a month in and my appendix ruptures. I spent over a week, up to the Fourth of July, in the hospital.  Summer really was awful by that point.   First day of school, sent to principal’s office for wearing a spaghetti strap tank top and had to wear a very large ugly school mascot shirt over it.
