Happiness now!

Shalom, y’all,
Scheduled my tweets (@lindaleeoils) for the rest of the day and tomorrow, for multiple reasons. One, I am making a conscious decision not to let social media “rule my life”. Reason number two: tomorrow is packed to the top and I will not have the time to post until after 7 p.m.
No, I don’t think the world will stop if I don’t tweet or post a blog, but I am trying to make a new habit.
I have been told that “I can not ‘make it big” in network marketing without a presence on social media”. So, here I am.
I have also consciously decided that my life isn’t going to be all about Young Living Essential Oils although I really love the oils and my oils business.
I will only blog about the oils every two weeks or so. If you want more than that my other blog (yes I mean I have two blogs) at abundanceofjoyessentialoils.com is ALL about oils Because it is my Young Living website.
Most of the tweets I scheduled today were about happiness.
I love being happy.
I smile in Wal Mart…Often I am the only one in Wal Mart smiling. I am not kidding. People looked surprised when my smile is directed at them. Sometimes I perceive that my smile bothers them… I smile anyway.
I once heard of a study that determined when you smile at someone you add three months to their lives. I immediately thought there is just no way to quantify that. But what if it just adds one day, one hour, one minute? I know it is a big thought, but who knows?
I have learned something about happiness and joy:
I want them both and sometimes they both come with pretty high price tags.
I won’t let circumstances, no matter the duration decide anything for me.
Happiness is a choice.
Joy is deeper. It wells up and bubbles out when I least expect it now.
This certainly does NOT mean that I don’t get frustrated or mad as heck sometimes, but I get back on the road to joy a lot more quickly.
Thank you for reading this post.
What are some ways, you have chosen to be happy-in the midst of the mess?
If you are not happy now, why not take your happiness back and keep it for a bit longer this time. This is a habit worth every second you put into it!

Shalom, y’all,

I am in the process of exporting my blog from blogger.com.  I haven’t been successful after two tries.  I am pretty computer illiterate…so four easy steps -that  really do look easy- can turn into days.

I am on a steep learning curve.

Reading about leadership: my Young Living Essential oils business is at spontaneous combustion level.  I have to learn to lead leaders. I am about to have 6-10.  It is a whole different ballgame. My team has over 400 members.

Do you have any questions about Essential oils? Peruse my website

i would love to answer them.  Leave a comment or email me. As my niece said to me, “Oils are cool now.”  That tickled me…when I started just about 4 1/2 years ago I had to explain what they were to almost everybody. Now it’s trending!  WooHoo! Does that make ME cool????  Not so much. Oh well.

Also reading about blogging.  Yes, I can imagine that sounds like watching paint dry but actually Michael Hyatt’s Platform is an easy read.  I have already incorporated three or four of his suggestions after starting the book just last night.  I have a long way to go.

I will try to spruce this up a lot.

Did I mention twitter, and navigating hootsuite and learning how to make social media graphics on canva.com?  All of this since last Thursday.

I blog about: having Joy in the midst of the mess a whole lot; quantum physics, when I can understand  enough to put in more than buzzwords; the God of the Bible. I unabashedly LOVE HIM and He loves me first.  I post  a recipes that I have tried and have passed the husband and four child test and once every week or two I post about oils.

I hope you enjoy my blog as I usually enjoy doing it…Oh yeah, I am honest too!
