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!

Introducing Miss Kelly

Welcome to the start of our new monthly series.  

Here at Busy Women's Health we have been trying to come up with a way to share the stories of our followers.  Carly and I finally decided that the simple route was best.  

We have reached out to a few of our friends and gotten their stories directly from them and now we're sharing them with you.  

Of course, since we know the first few ladies, we may just throw in a few "details" of our own.

I Ate The Damn Cake And Lost 21 Pounds

Today is a good day. No, a GREAT day.

This morning, I stepped on the scale and was amazed and ecstatic to see that I am officially 21 POUNDS LIGHTER since beginning my Intermittent Fasting journey at the end of January 2018. See the difference?

I've talked before about how I found IF and started my weight loss journey if you want to check it out.

The day I started IF, I weighed in at 149.8 lbs, the heaviest I'd ever been in my life. Today, I am 128.8 lbs. I haven't been close to this for almost a decade. I never thought I'd get back to 130 lbs, much less BELOW it!




And I did it without depriving myself, without sacrificing my favorite foods and without ever once feeling guilty about anything I ate.

Sure, I probably could've reached this milestone sooner had I been a bit stricter with myself, but that kind of defeats the purpose of what IF is all about.

Please Stop Asking When I'm Getting Married

"When are YOU getting married?"

This is a question that has begun to haunt me as an unmarried, unengaged woman in a long-term relationship. Well, that and "when are you going to have kids?" But, that's a subject to broach another time.

What do you say to that? It's not as if we've secretly gotten engaged, set a date and haven't told anyone. Responding truthfully with "I don't know" doesn't seem like the right response.

I've learned to brace myself at gatherings and social functions (especially weddings) for this inevitable question. 

Now, I am completely aware that the asker is simply trying to take an interest in my life and that the question is meant in a completely harmless way. I don't take offense to it, I just get asked this A LOT.

You know who doesn't get asked this question...like ever?

My boyfriend.

I recall an event a while back where I fielded this question about half a dozen or more times. On our way home, I asked …
