This is important info if you own a home or want to. I’m beyond appalled by the crap lenders pull.
Good essential oil advice and of course, we share a love for Coconut Oil!
Essential oils are a big part of our natural DIY life.
My top 6 essential oils for everything DIY
I get asked a lot by those just starting out what 6 essential oils I recommend the most for the most uses & how we use them, so I hope this blog post clears up that these questions. Essential oils can cost a bit at first but with proper use one bottle can last you a year, I buy them once a year. They are listed by the most used, so if you can only afford 3 I recommend the first 3, But the top 4 we could not live without I swear.

The thing about having a cold, is that everyone understands what ails us. We usually garner some degree of sympathy from those around us. Folks understand that the coughing, sneezing, and snuffling are symptoms. We don’t worry that people will find out we’ve gone to the doctor for help when the cold gets the better of us.
What if we changed the wording in the previous paragraph? Suppose that cold turned to bipolar disorder. Imagine that coughing, sneezing, and snuffling became mood swings, altered judgment, and puzzling behavior. What if we could change the words and the paragraphs still rang true?

My sentiments exactly. If you’re only with me for a season, please, fuck off now.
I find this ridiculous since doctors claim Tylenol is “the safest OTC medicine you can take”. They have made this claim for longer than I have been alive. This sort of thing just makes me shake my head in disgust. It heightens my desire to leave this country.
Too good a post not to share.
Today is a tad of a touchy subject, but in this New year, I want everyone to have a the greatest gift any of us can have…peace. Bullies, in my opinion, are among the lowest known existing lifeforms. I wouldn’t want to insult cockroaches and fleas by drawing a comparison.
Kristen’s History With Bullies
I grew up most of my life being bullied. I switched schools at least once a year and there was always a new gaggle of Mean Girls to make my daily life a veritable hell. I think this is why I grew to love books. I skipped school so much (to seek sanctuary at the public library), that I’m fairly certain I’m the reason for the current Texas truancy laws.
I couldn’t get out of bed. I became ill at the thought of even walking through the front doors of my school. I was poor and…

A most excellent post for you to enjoy.
Once upon a time, upon reading one of my blog posts, the most excellent Elaine told me that someday, I should write a book called What Have We Learned? as I used to end a lot of my blog posts with that phrase; I’d write a post and at the end, write “what have we learned?” and sum it up with something sarcastic.
Now, let’s be honest: I often don’t have time to do LIFE things on a regular basis, like read, eat on time, or go out with friends I actually care about, so writing a book’s probably not going to happen anytime soon. I mean, someday, maybe when I’m, I don’t know, retired, or something, I’ll have time to sit down and put my thoughts down on paper…or maybe I’ll never get to retire, because apparently when I get to that age, Social Security will have disappeared and…

This really strikes a cord with me today. It’s not something I would ever write, but I have said some of these things. All in all, an excellently written piece that I thought I’d share. =)
Anger is energy, and most of the time we misdirect our energy. If we spend our energy complaining, pointing fingers of blame and concentrating on who’s “right” and what’s “wrong”, instead of talking like adults and honestly try to understand and heal the situation, maybe learning to peacefully respond to each unique circumstance rather than reacting to them, to learn that we are, in fact, only draining away the creative energy it takes to solve the problem. Instead of bringing a catalyst for change, anger becomes an excuse for staying stuck.
When anger is nurtured there are no winners. It truly doesn’t matter who’s “right” or who’s “wrong” because, the end result is that all the parties become losers. Relationships are lost, experiences are…

This is all too true. My distinct feeling on this is that there is room for all of us on bookshelves and e-readers, and as a community, we should all be more supportive of one another. Though I openly admit, some people make it very hard to be supportive of their work. However, if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all. (I officially just became my Grandmother!)
The moment you realize you can conjure a tempest with words you’ll be ruined. Whether or not you start legitimizing the title on your business cards or writing under a nom de plume, the madness will start seeping in. The vulnerability of exposing yourself between the lines makes all of us writers our harshest critics, and many of us strive toward the elusive goal of “being good”—yet we have outrageous expectations as to what that actually entails.
For most, “being good” entails a bestselling book, a blog whose posts explode with comments within minutes of a post being published, a website whose content routinely goes viral, or a dedicated fan club whose members beg to have their unmentionables autographed. For some, “being good” happens when you get your articles featured on websites whose traffic, numbered in the thousands, makes your bank account balance into an embarrassment. For a handful, “being…
