At dōTERRA, we talk a lot about our “why”—why we do what we do, and why it matters. Lately, I’ve been thinking about my “why” and how it connects to what I studied as a biology major and how I spent 20 years as a high school biology teacher.
I’ve been thinking a lot lately about consumption.“Um, the disease?” a friend asked.“No, not the disease,” I laughed. “Consuming.” But, yes, it’s a bit like a national disease that hits especially hard this time of year. Our thoughts are consumed with shopping till we drop… of exhaustion. Our minds are clouded with visions of sugarplums… or the 21st-century equivalents, perhaps cookie swaps?
Inevitably, change happens. But wouldn’t it be better to be in the driver’s seat? Making decisions is hard. Unfortunately, I believe we make change a lot harder than it needs to be because we separate ourselves from our emotions and our intuition, having been taught to push through and to cope.
