The meeting (stress)

I had a really important meeting today. I know really important to me might not be the same as really important to you, but this was very serious and about my kid. Leading up to this meeting, I was feeling very much like I'm going to be kicking ass and taking names and with a not-so-small side of blood-thirst. You don't mess with my kid. I think most parents get that.

But once late morning got here, I started to get nervous about it. We use a lot of essential oils in our house, but I haven't done a whole lot of work on mood management. I got out some oils and my Emotions & Essential Oils book. 

I chose a protective blend on my spine for protection, it includes clove for courage. I inhaled lemon for a clear mind and roman chamomile for a sense of purpose and then rubbed that over the back of my neck. I followed up with my favorite frankincense because it enhances all the other oils and it always makes me feel good. I love that frank. In fact, that's pretty much my mantra. I love that frank. I love that frank...

In the car, on the way to the meeting, my husband asked me how I was doing. He said, 
You seem really mellow.
I'm pretty sure he has never said that to me, in the almost 24 years that we've been together. I don't consider myself high strung, but I do get anxious occasionally, And this was one of those occasions. But I was quite calm! And the meeting went well. And I didn't have to kick anybody's ass. And I didn't have to take names (but, I did take some notes.) 

All in all it was a success.

I devoured the Emotions book when I got it. I read it cover to cover the day it came. I was looking for some help with my older son, (who is 14 and on the severe end of the autism spectrum a.k.a. the kid the meeting was about) I think I need to reread it and think about how I can help myself and my family in other ways.
