bird and wildflower co.
just a silver haired gal pursuing freedom through wellness
i was stuck. literally stuck.
if you’ve ever experienced panic attacks, you know how debilitating they can be. frozen, a million thoughts racing through your mind but also simultaneously only one:
just keep breathing.
i had been silently suffering for months leading up to my wedding. i thought i was doing a good job hiding it. the anxiety. it didn’t even make sense how i could feel these things. i was about to get married!!! but anxiety is sinister and it has no rules as to whom its victims are.
fast forward 6 months.
no one really talks about post-wedding depression. but it’s very real and VERY common. all of the hype and planning leading up to the big day and then........it’s over. i stumbled through the months that followed my wedding as if i was blindfolded in a dark room. i had no motivation. no joy. no hope.
i am so humbled by how my husband was there for me in this season, pointing me always towards the feet of our Creator King. and encouraging me when a new opportunity presented itself. one that brought light. and hope.
i was given the last of a bottle of lavender by a dear coworker. his wife had been talking to me about oils for months and i constantly was writing her off:
they won’t work.
MLMs are sketchy.
we don’t have the money.
i had every excuse under the sun. but this gift young living oil offered me relief from a severe panic attack that was life altering. because of the way it helped me in a panic stricken moment, i felt a glimmer of hope, like an ember deep in my soul.
well i sprinted for it. i wanted to fan that ember until it burst into flames. i wanted every part of young living. the oils. the community. the business. the paycheck. and they really mean it when they say that you get out of it what you put into it! because three years later we wouldn’t dream of going back.
the relief that we have felt.....physically, emotionally, spiritually, financially......because of what we have found with young living is something i am lifting up to my Creator daily with humility and thanksgiving. we were created to live carefree in the care of our Creator. just as the birds of the air and the wildflowers of the field. and we matter far more to Him than they. He wants us to live free of the things that ail us. and i believe that these oils are a tool in attaining that. so welcome to bird and wildflower co, my friend. i’m so humbled to share my journey into freedom using the tools crafted by my God for such a time as this.
“ Look at the birds, free and unfettered, not tied down to a job description, careless in the care of God. And you count far more to him than birds..... Walk out into the fields and look at the wildflowers. They never primp or shop, but have you ever seen color and design quite like it?..... If God gives such attention to the appearance of wildflowers—most of which are never even seen—don’t you think he’ll attend to you, take pride in you, do his best for you?”
