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.
