So this is me... I thought it would be a good idea to introduce myself because I don't think I ever have... 👋
My name is Ashley. I'm a mother to a 4 year old spunky little girl who is best described as a tomboy in a tutu. I also am mom to an almost 8 year old boy. Who also keeps us on our toes. 
My son has moderate to sever autism as well as a life threatening condition called CVID. He was the driving force for the holistic, natural, wellness lifestyle that became ours. It all started with Young Living and an investment that was less than $200. Throughout the years we have tried many different wellness treatments and options but diet and Young Living essential oils and products have stayed the staple to it all, not just for my son but all of us (yep... the dog too). I'm excited to now be taking it a step further and sharing what I have learned and my experiences with other in hopes to help them gain as much as my family has.

I also have a passion for helping others and advocating for those that can't advocate for themselves. I volunteer as a TACA mentor helping to share my knowledge, experiences, and resources. I also work doing in-home nursing with the elderly and I have been so blessed to encounter such amazing and inspirational people along the way.

Now it's your turn... don't be shy. Drop me a message and say hi sometime. 😉

Started new program ✅
Took measurements and before pics✅
Following the meal plan that goes with my program along with our whole system✅✅
.
.
I’m so excited about this program, I know I say that every time I start a new program....and I mean it every time:). There’s something so beautiful about starting a new program and knowing you WILL finish it.
.
. 
That’s something when I first started I wasn’t sure would happen.  I had never finished any program at home.  And if not for our Bootcamps I don’t think I would have this time either. The Bootcamp is a place with like minded people, girls on the same journey and struggling with the same things...so there’s an instant bond.  Then throw in the tools, recipes and meal plans and it’s hard not to success...plus there’s a money back guarantee so there that!!! .
.
Is today the day?!? The day you lose all your excuses and say to heck with it I’m gonna do this, because I’m worth it!  Message me, let’s do this !!!

As with so many things in this Autism world, he is a bit late to the game, but today he conquered balance!
Knowing what to wait for and what to push forward with is a fine art with ASD kids. Listen to your parenting intuition - no one knows your kid as well as you do. ..

Has this ever happened to you and what was YOUR response? Inquiring minds wanna know 😜

Poor guy hates Monday and Thursday for this reason. Getting this dressing changed is very painful and anxiety inducing. Due to the amount of factor we give, it has to be changed twice weekly and sometimes more often. His tape allergy doesn't help matters. That's not dirt btw, it's tape residue. I'm torn between loving this Broviac and secretly, selfishly hating how it's changed our life. But, I have no doubt without it, he would have been dead already. Even his hospice team is proud of how he is doing and his optimistic outlook. ❤👌💪 #warriormom  #chasethecure  ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤ Paypal.me/shannonwitt https://www.gofundme.com/chasehodges ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤ #bleed  #factorviideficiency  #glanzmannsthrombasthenia  #chronicillness  #momlife  #love  #chronicpain  #hydrocephalus  #positivevibes  #goodenergy  #strength  #novoseven  #goodvibes  #themoreyouknow  #raredisease  #educate  #vpshunt  #embolization  #anxiety  #ptsd  #hydrowarrior  #specialneedsmom  #broviac 
Going for a walk is the best medicine for clearing your head, disturbing thought patterns and lifting your mood.  It's my go to solution for stressful times but as prevention too. 
What are you waiting for? Get your shoes on 😊

When you dedicate yourself to improving- to be better than you were yesterday, giving up is not an option. As fine gold is tested in a fire, the warrior's will is tested in adversity.

A L L  T H E  S E N S E S //
A little #tbt to this time last week when we had a full on beach bound sensory programme in place with my little man in beautiful Sardinia.
.
And didn’t it have incredible consequences, calming his mind, body and soul!
I noticed some beautiful shifts take place in flexibility, anxiety, agitation and so much more. A total calmness, stillness, peace, presentness and utter joy! Beautiful to witness and beautiful to live.
.
The happiness, so much so he didn’t want to leave when we had to return home. He was not the only one either! 😭
.
This one week away helped me gain immense clarity, has made me more determined in my why then ever before and what I desire for the both of our futures. Why I love having a business that can be run from anywhere in the world that’s such an incredible vehicle to make dreams become reality...
So beach life it is, always dream big, believe and take the actions necessary to get you there. There’s always a way, the universe loves a believer! 🙌🏽

❓Do you have those items you hang on to “just in case”? ❓
.
About 6 years ago, I was tired of trying to battle my depression. I struggled all my life and was at a point where going into the dark holes was getting to be too much. I just wanted to feel “normal”. I didn’t want the pain anymore and I needed to quiet the voices in my head.
.
So I got on Prozac. It certainly helped but then I realized I wasn’t feeling much at all. Over the years I had to increase my dose to make the depression manageable. .
Early last year, I stopped taking my antidepressants. I was feeling good with the change in my diet and exercise, and also had been fueling my mind, so I felt good about the change.
.
I knew I wasn’t going back to it, but just like we hang on to those jeans that are too big, I held on to this bottle, because “you never know”. .
The other day I had an amazing talk with an old friend and I decided it was time. I knew I would never go back to taking these pills (plus they just expired 🤣). So I got rid of them. Throwing them away was a release. It was a confirmation of the life changes I’ve made and solidified that I would never go back to my old ways. .
“Letting go isn’t about having the courage to release the past; it’s about having the wisdom to embrace the present.”

#ThrowbackThursday to our guy’s birthday trip to Disney World. Special memory in this picture. I had taken it and sent it to one of my dearest friends after she had sent me a picture of her family at Disneyland celebrating their guy’s 10th birthday, too. Same time. Same magic. Same birthday wishes. Just opposite coasts. And in that moment, my heart was full, and I was reminded that good, good friends are a treasure.✨

I woke up today feeling all warm and fuzzy after hanging out with friends last night. But Thursday morning killed my high. Actually it was my 10 year old who is attending an Extended School Year(ESY) and flipping out about going to school. I feel torn about school. I have my own love/hate relationship with it. I am a person with learning disabilities/differences and a child of 2 retired teachers.  I have met and worked with some amazing teachers but the system itself needs to change. After a lot of screaming and crying he went. But it’s such an unpleasant way to start the day. A lot of it is anxiety but I think he sees this as a punishment. And I think I would too if I was him. Kids with learning disabilities are often recommended to attend summer school but they are also the kids who are working harder than everyone else throughout the school year and really need a break. Which is why next summer there will be no summer school for this kid. #momrant #warmandfuzzy #savethebees #hangingwithfriends #feedsmysoul #dahlia #warriormom #dyslexia #dyslexiamom #learningdisabilities #summerschoolsucks #esy

I don’t think it’s gets any better than holding your baby while they sleep...but throw in some mommy hustle and well it’s pretty sweet!  Best of both worlds collide and it’s the perfect side gig.  It allows the freedom to be a mommy first and I simply fit in the work part into the pockets of my day.....you know the time I would be mindlessly scrolling on Instagram.
