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!

Covid-19: A Message From A Front Line Health Care Worker

Hello friends, I hope this message finds you well.  Through out the recent weeks, and the onslaught of the Covid-19 pandemic, I have been struggling on what to say.  I have been trying to keep a positive outlook, telling myself that we'll be okay. That everything will go back to normal eventually, but as we've seen, so much changes from day to day that it's hard to know what the future holds right now. It's scary. It can be overwhelming. We've never seen anything like this. Some of us are in major hotspots and some, thankfully, are in more sheltered pockets. The reality of the situation is that we are all affected. I am writing this from my home office, a place that I have spent much much more time in recently, especially in the wake of the governor of Colorado, Jared Polis' stay-at-home orders. Being that I am a member of the media, I have been deemed "essential." Like many of us, I have special documentation from Washington, D.C. that

I Slept Funny And Now I'm Dying

Okay, maybe not "dying," but omg. I woke up and realized it hurts to turn my head. TURN MY HEAD.  I have such a massive knot in the left side of my neck, it would make a sea captain proud...or at least my old Girl Scout troop leader. And why, you ask? Why am I in such horrendous pain? What is the cause of this completely over-dramatic post?  I flipping SLEPT WRONG.  Seriously. My neck hurts, because I apparently slept standing on my head while breakdancing. That's the only position I can think of that would make any sense for how I'm feeling right now. I really don't mind aging, I just mind the "my body is falling apart" part of aging. As a kid, I could sleep on just a blanket on a concrete floor with no pillow and wake up the next day feeling AWESOME. Now, I basically need to have a heating pad on top of a Tempurpedic on top of another Tempurpedic on top of a fluffy cloud just to wake up feeling like I may've been human at on
