It’s a random three things on my mind today, friends . . .
- I was listening to a podcast recently and they were talking about goal setting and basically debating whether it was better to set a low goal and crush it or set a high goal and challenge yourself even though you might fail. I’m totally in the low bar camp on this. It’s why I set my GoodReads challenge slightly lower than the number of books I know I’ll read. It might even by why I put items I’m mostly completed on my to-do list just so that I’ll have the satisfaction of checking them off. How about you?
- Last spring I attended a workshop on essential oils and I’ve been really intrigued by them ever since. At this point I am using them daily for all kinds of things: meditating, headaches, freshening a room . . . I even had a cold sore recently and made a blend of lavender, tea tree, eucalyptus and peppermint to treat it and it definitely healed faster than usual. I’m buying mine from Young Living because I really want high quality oils that are extracted from real plants. I have a wholesale membership but I’m not actively selling the products (like with LipSense). If you want to learn more I’d love to talk to you about it and if you want to get a wholesale membership for yourself I can help you with that, too.
- The other day Kym blogged about having a theme for the holidays this year. She was inspired to do this on her own but her idea was reinforced by a conversation on the Happier podcast. I was listening to that same episode and was thinking I’d like a theme for the holidays, too. Something to help me remember that it’s fun. Something to help me make choices about what I want to say yes (and no) to for the month. I have chosen Have a holly, jolly Christmas as my theme. It happens to be Dale’s favorite Christmas song and I think it perfectly sums up how I want to approach the holidays this year. Do you have a theme?
And that’s my random Thursday! What’s going on with you today?
