It’s hard for me to keep my cool sometimes, I won’t lie. I constantly have to choose to not be angry or upset or frustrated, but I certainly don’t win all the time. So to those that have seen my bad side and still forgive me, thank you from the bottom of my heart. From my coworkers, to my close friends, to my family, everyone. Your forgiveness and support encourage me to choose positivity every time ☺️ #growingpains#spiritualjourney#positivity
There is a 150+ acre farm bordering the back of our “quaint by comparison” homestead. This view is from the back of their hayfield where the boundaries align. We recently learned the farm had sold and will be developed into an 800 unit mixed use community. This news is a bit disappointing for us and our neighbors bordering the farm. It comes as no surprise though. The way the city is exploding in population growth, this scenario has become the new normal. I know everyone on our road wishes the land would remain a farm yet I totally understand why the family sold. If smart with their money they will be free of financial worry for several generations. They can move 30 miles south, pay cash for twice the amount of land and farm for fun if they want without the dependency of a successful crop or herd to make it. Our hearts are inclined to first take care of our own and I would be hard pressed to say I wouldn’t do the same in that scenario. Progress. Putting yourself in others shoes and situations will make you think.
Well this man is transformed and looking sharp with a brand new style of cut to start school! 🤩
It’s silly... he’s gonna love it, yet I am already suffering a little separation anxiety when he looks at me and asks me why I’m packing his lunch, he wants to eat it at home! Ahhhh!! Why is the hardest job in the world being a mom to a snuggle baby & mama’s boy? Girls are so much more independent! 🤦🏻♀️😭

Hello darlings! If you haven’t seen my earlier posts - on October 28 I will be having a soft launch at a craft fair! This event has forced me- literally forced me pry bar and all - out of my shell, out of my comfort zone, and into the business I’ve been dreaming about for ages. I have experienced in the last month a full gamut of emotions, from excitement to fear to self-doubt. But I’m trudging ahead anyway and just want to thank you all for coming along for the ride! We’re doing this bull in a china store style...kidding not kidding. Stay tuned for more! .
Me this morning trying to flex after back and bis. Oh how funny!! My arms were shaking so bad. It was a great workout though and it felt good to be back at my lifting weight before my injury. Which means next week I should be able to go up a couple pounds on some moves. There is still a little resistance in the shoulder.
Sick in bed (day 2) and reflecting on our move to Bozeman. My job has been incredibly time consuming and mentally exhausting since the minute we arrived (big surprise: working/managing(ish) a restaurant that has just recently opened is no easy task). Time to play and run long distances in the mountains has been pretty darn limited, and that’s been the most difficult thing by far.... that’s how I find balance and happiness so that I can be my best self. Plus, Oregon (it’s people, it’s food, and it’s trails) is really just the best and it’s a hard place not to miss. But, as always, I’m grateful for @_davidjames_ , his support, our 2 weird furry babies, and this experience to try something new. #growingpains#longstorykindashort#oregongirl#tired
Many times we want umbrella when it storms and rains but some rain is coming to cause a flood or damage but water the seed or promise in you! I’m choosing to let what happen water me into my greater self #imgrowingup#seed#growingpains
New Levels in my kingdom. 40 Million people have chosen to have protection for their soul(40 Million Saved) which means 40 million more people chose heaven over hell...this is a milestone, I am not on t.v., no books, not on the internet, no DVD's, and not my time under heaven( Popi has not sent me out yet), and we have 40 million salvations recorded in heaven....#Thefirsteverlikethis#growingpains#kingdombuilding#HolyspiritistherealM .V.P.
I’ve been willing to take risks that might be out of many people’s comfort zone, and I’ve often been called “brave” because of it. That always made me uncomfortable, because none of those things had scared me -- I was wired to do them -- I wasn’t brave, because I wasn’t afraid.
But this process of creating my own business? This is the most terrifying thing I’ve ever done.
I recently read The Art of War by Steven Pressfield (thanks for the rec, @jamesthetang !), and he says that the more important something is to your soul’s evolution, the more you will fear it and resist it. THIS!! I’ve always felt that this work I’m setting out to do is my purpose in this lifetime. And honestly, the crippling, paralyzing fear and resistance that I’ve been feeling has proven to me that this is the case.
So what is it I’m afraid of? SO many things, and I think they’re fears that most of us likely share in one area of our life or another, so over the next several days I’ll be processing each of these fears here, with you, so we can learn, grow, heal, and transform TOGETHER.
What’s one thing you’re most afraid to work toward right now, and why does it feel scary? I promise, you’re not alone in your fear. 💙 Lots of Love, Lena
PanAway is a soothing blend of Wintergreen, Helichrysum, Clove, and Peppermint. It's ideal for soothing sore muscles, neck and shoulder discomfort, knee & joint discomfort. It can only be used topically, is considered a hot oil so it needs to be diluted, and is not recommended for children under 3. Dilution ratio 1:4.
Here is a list of suggestions for making the most of this oil!
💪🏽Apply PanAway after exercise to relieve sore muscles.
💪🏽Apply a drop to the temples, back of neck and across forehead for head tension.
💪🏽Apply on location to promote healthy joints.
💪🏽Dilute and massage on location to ease growing pains. (Our favorite use!)
💪🏽Apply on base of spine to help support the sciatica.
💪🏽Make a roller with PanAway alone or the “Triple Threat” of 10 drops each of PanAway, Peppermint, and Copaiba.
💪🏽Mix 5-10 drops of PanAway in a cup of Epsom salt. Use the entire amount in a warm bath for a soothing soak. You can also use this in a basin of very warm water to soak tired, achy feet.
🙏🏻 personal growth is an everyday task ~ each time I step away and observe MY days MY actions MY decisions I pick up something different or something new ~ and being real with myself has been the biggest pain in the ass teacher 🙏🏻 I may not be where you are but I appreciate where I am And where I’m going, and everyday work towards my goals. What I’ve learned is so true , is that if you keep doing the same , thinking the same and living the same ... you WILL NOT change ❤️ #Growth#GrowingPains#PersonalDevelopment#Greatness#GoalSetting#ItsOkToStartOver#NotOkToQuit 💪🏼

“Alliances bring a sense of order and direction to chaos and disorientation.”
Having an alliance is paramount to developing strength, both mentally and physical. We as humans have a tendency to want to gravitate to a group. When you feel alone you can feel weak and scared. As you start to develop strength, others will look at you and you will inspire them to want to be part of the growth. We evolved as people in tribes, so wanting to be part of likeminded people is natural for everyone. There is a reason for this, we all have weaknesses, the show of strength are the actions in spite of these weaknesses. In groups, you can bring your strengths forward and develop your weaknesses with help from those around you. Growing together is the best aspect of development. —————————————————————
