Aromatherapist? That’s me!

Today, we were asked to do a short video for Smart Parenting’s database and I figured out that this was also the challenge in one of the Instagram makeover challenge I joined in so might as well post what I do (like being an aromatherapist) across my digital assetsΒ πŸ˜‚

Trigger question: what is your occupation???

Certified Aromatherapist

Acckk, so hard to answer because things have changed (understatement) since I left corporate. It has been four months and things have been greatly disrupted by the enhanced community quarantine but we gotta do what we gotta do!

Sooo, let me introduce myself again.

STRETCHED. This is what this ECQ means to me. It is very uncomfortable, to say at the very least. Though I know my discomfort is NOTHING compared to everyone who is in the frontline, my whole being is being stretched to uncomfortable levels (lock up ENFJs, sorry @reg_panganiban, and this is what you get) and my mind and emotions are just ALL OVER THE PLACE (or Full Moon, yeah?) πŸŒ• The uncertainty for my business (and well, everything else) is driving me crazy. The structureless world is driving me crazy (it is Wednesday now, whuut?) 🌏 The kids are driving me crazy (yes, I am human, too, don’t bite me) Like my yoga practice, I don’t even know why I want to make the most out of this stretched situation so bad when I am so bad at it. UGH. (Why do you have to be sooo hard??? It’s just a downward dog, others would say. Most basic pose. Buuut…ughhhh! Sorry @roseanntco, hope this is a better execution.) πŸ˜‚ C-R-Y But yes, all we need is TIME. Time to honor the moment because we are not just in this “stretch” for the stretch. We are in here to BREATHE. To be conscious that we should breathe in every downward dog and that it is much, much more important than the stretch itself because it (the breath) actually supports us to flow steadily and strongly. Time to practice what we are so bad at now so that one day, someday, we can be much BETTER (hopefully) – like yoga, parenting, making systems, pivoting, need I go on? And lastly, time to just BE. Be in the mat despite how lazy it can be. Be in the moment despite how your mind flies into the unknown. Be LOVE, not fear. πŸ’• BREATHE. BETTER. BE. Everything’s going to be alright. πŸ™πŸΌ

If you ask me to choose among these many roles I play, it would be a tough call. I love being an aromatherapist and helping people (especially moms), learn safe and effective use of essential oils but I also love writing and marketing! Not to forget, being a mom, too!

So how about you, mommas!? What roles do you play in your life right now? Hit me up and let’s share this journey!
