For as long as I can remember I have suffered from hip pain. I remember being a teenager and walking around town with my friends and my hip would lock up on me. My right leg would seize up down to my knees and I would try to keep up with them, trying to not make a big deal about it.

I don't think I ever told my parents about the amount of pain I was in. I didn't want anyone to make a fuss over me. I think a lot of it stemmed from fear and the unknown. I am certain the life long issues I have had from this were caused from a hip infection I had at 7 years old.

I remember waking up in the middle of the night in executing pain. My hips and back kept jolting while I lay in bed and my legs stopped working. I yelled for my mum and eventually in the middle of the night we drove to St. John's hospital in Worcester. We were met in the parking lot and I was lifted onto a stretcher. Even though I was terrified and in an intense amount of paid, the speed of them running with me started a fit of the giggles.

My next memory is laying on a table with doctor's surrounding my legs and body with cushions in a dark room with these robotic arms coming down on me. I had my beloved teddy bear Pandy by my side wide eyed listening to the mechanics of the xray machine. I was put in the children's ward bandaged from my waist to my toes with massive weights attached to my feet. Those things were awful! Any sudden movement and they would clang to the ground echoing the ward.

It wasn't all traumatic during my couple of weeks there. I met a great friend who I would race around the ward with in our wheelchairs and share my chocolate with. I never saw her again after this but years later my mum told me the tragic story of how she had been in a car accident which put her in hospital and how her parents had perished in that crash. I wish I could remember her name. I often wonder how she is.

So from all of that and many flare ups in between and fast forward to my first pregnancy, the pain came back with a vengeance. Again being a busy new mum and not wanting to make a fuss (or go back to hospital) I suffered.

I did start going to the chiropractor and this did provide some relief in conjunction with naproxen and tylenol. Then came the tummy pains and realizations that I might need to take this to the next level of care. I got myself all prepped to go to the Dr. and request an xray, then Corona happened and I chickened out.

I made the decision about a month ago to try and deal with the inflammation with something natural until the world goes back to a somewhat normal. I am a Young Living member and they have a range of some amazing supplements. I came across one called Sulfurzyme. It's main ingredient is MSM and wolfberry which has amazing health benefits. It claims to support symptoms of osteoarthritis so I figured it couldn't hurt me to try and thankfully I had a bottle on hand already!

Week one I noticed the stiffness subsiding and the pain started to shift from my lower back and knees to being more localized in my right hip.

Week two same as above but with a bit more mobility. I could put socks and shoes on without twisting my body to protect myself from pain.

Week 3 all of the above and I could walk up and down stairs without daggers being shot into my kneecap and hips! No swearing like a sailor for me!! And that pillow that I've slept with between my knees for 5 years is now in the closet.

Week 4 AMAZING! I went for a walk on the beach and my legs did not lock up on me! I came home and there was not pain or stiffness. I was ready for it and totally prepared for parking myself on the couch but it never happened! This is huge for me! I even scrubbed the bathroom.

So friends I know that I'm not the best at seeking medical help, and let me be clear I love our doctors and nurses and have so much faith in their expertise, had I not been such a scaredy cat my whole life I probably would not have suffered as much. However this is an amazing alternative for me until I work up the courage for that xray!!!

Chronic pain is no joke and it can be debilitating, depressing, life changing you name it. I am happy that I feel like I am getting my life back and I can enjoy the dance parties with my daughter again!

What is one thing you would do again if you were able to manage your pain? I'm looking forward to racing my daughter at the track this summer!! ~k~c~

Wow! Anyone else feel a bit blindsided with how 2020 has gone so far? In what seems like the blink of an eye our lives were thrown into a tornado and priorities were quickly altered.


I was creeping my own Facebook page the other night (don't judge me) it was just what I needed to feed my craving for happy memories and not a news feed crammed with doom and gloom. You should try it sometime, it's actually a really refreshing! I came across a post of mine from the good ol' days back in January 2020 (It seems so long ago!)



🥂Happy New Year to all of my friends and family near and far🥂


I can't believe we are already here 4 days into a new year and decade! 2020 is going to be such an amazing year and I'm already on the path to crushing my goals👊and so ready for my#BestDecadeEver💃


With a new year & new decade brings so much excitement, determination, a sense of purpose and a fresh start and plans to crush those goals turning our dreams into reality😀


Unfortunately sometimes we are way too hard on ourselves and this can quickly turn into stress, disappointment, self doubt and we start to shy away from that fire burning passion that was so powerful not so long ago😩


This year I am going to overcome ALL of that self doubt and negative self talk and will make this our best year yet!🥂


I'm writing down all of my goals and dreams no matter how big or out of reach the may seem! We already have one huge dream in motion and am so excited to share with you all one day in the future😉(no I am not pregnant) lol


I have a system that keeps my ever changing emotions in check and keeping my focus on what's important. I'm sure most of you know that I've been using essential oils for years, I honestly can't even begin to explain in one post how beneficial they have been in my own personal growth💕


Below are a handful of what I use daily


🤯Stress Away when I get myself into a hot mess and start being hard on myself


😰Valor for when I can't focus and feel anxious it calms me down and is almost like a brain reset


😴Lavender and Frankincense I typically use together at night time in the diffuser, it helps me relax and just chill out so I can read a book and drift off to sleep when my mind us buzzing


🏃‍♀️when I feel low on energy I break out the peppermint and lemon so I can get going again


Who wants to crush some goals with me this year and make this the best decade yet together?!👊


I actually cringed when I read this. I was annoyed with New Year me. Acting all positive and encouraging! How dare she? And what's with all the emojis? I wanted to delete the post. But then I read it again, and again until I realized how ready and motivated I was to make this the best year yet and there was nothing that would get in my way! This is MY decade and our time to shine! YOU GO GIRL!!


It brought me to a realization and it also brought me peace. No I have not reached my goals yet, and yes we have had to put some dreams on the sidelines. But they're not gone, just simply on hold for another day. No more Debbie downer for me! I'm getting back to January me and digging out those oils!


Here's a peak if some things that we have had the luxury of doing since the world went mad and I am going to embrace each day as it comes from now on!


















Stay safe my friends and find the beauty in each day to come.

In all the years I have been with Young Living, I've never really talked much publicly about the business side. Not for any reason in particular, mostly it was because I wasn't ever really doing the business.


I signed up in 2017 because I had seen a friend of mine post a video of her 2 year old all calm, ready to fall asleep and just totally chill.


Abigail was TWO!

She does NOT lay calm in her bed!

What was this magic?!


I flipped my frizzy mum bun back, wiped the tear from my eye, made sure Abigail wasn't going to bounce off her bed and messaged Laura! She was so helpful. I asked her what kind of witch craft that was that made children sleep, I poured my heart out to her and next thing I was ordering a kit. Laura is amazing and even drove up to my house that night to cast a spell on Abigail....... Kidding of course! She brought me a sleep spray to try out while I waited for my kit to arrive.


She signed me up for Essential Rewards so that I could get a free bottle of Orange oil and 10 points, I was going to cancel as soon as I received my order since I only needed some to whip up a few potions I had Googled. I tried the NingXia Red pouches and decided to order once more and then quit.





A few months later me and my bestie were chilling out on the couch, ok! so we were a few bottles of wine into the evening and chatting about oils. With one eye open we ordered her a kit and a couple of days later we found out how amazing the Young Living Customer support team really is! We had put her address and credit card information in wrong and also forgot all passwords that were picked at sign up. They were incredibly helpful and got it all sorted out! Fast forward a couple of more weeks and I received a cheque for $65 from Young Living!


I still wasn't doing the business though!


About 6 or so months into having my kit, Steve was starting to claim certain oils of mine and I was getting really annoyed with him! I liked that he was using them but I could never find the PanAway when I needed it. So we got him signed up for his own account and I got another $65 deposited to my bank account.


Needless to say I started to become more and more curious about the business, because why would I not want to get paid for doing something that I love! My entire hobby was getting paid for and I like free fun!!


Today some amazing business bonuses were announced by Young Living and I'm ready to get in on the action! I'm looking for people to run with me, not just for the income potential we all have but because I want a team of people who are going to fall in love with the company and the oils well before the love of money!


One of my most precious gifts out of this company is the wonderful group of women and yes men as well that I have got to know over the years. My most valued friendships have been created through this and I can't imagine my life without them a part of it!


Fun Fact:

You don't have to live in Canada to join me! There are markets all over the globe and I can get you set up!
