Not to Jinx It But It’s Been Years Since I Was Sick – Here’s My Secret to Staying Healthy

Not to Jinx It But It's Been Years Since I Was Sick - Here's My Secret to Staying Healthy It’s officially going on two years since I had so much as a scratchy throat. And I’m attributing that to the Young Living products I’ve been using over the years. I’ve been a Young Living distributor since January 2013. I absolutely love the essential oils. I use them every day along with many of their other products. But my favorite success is managing to avoid laryngitis.

How to Be Your True Self When Your True Colors Want to Come Out Instead

How to Be Your True Self When Your True Colors Want to Come Out Instead So often we hide behind a façade, afraid that if we show our true selves, people won't like us. This can be a big deal for writers. We're a unique breed. We have wild imaginations, and we ponder ways to spin events into complex tales. And if people only knew the weird thoughts that run through our minds every day, they'd run the other way. Wouldn't they? It's our wild imaginations that make us great storytellers.

But it isn't just our writing ability that depends on our true selves. Before I go on, let me clarify something. When I say "true selves," I'm not talking about "true colors."
