Today was a beautiful day, and I got to spend my morning reading to some sweet little kids outside. 🙂
I was asked last week by the local librarian if I’d be willing to take part in their “walking library time” today. This is how it worked: They had half a dozen readers stationed at various local businesses, and one of the librarians led the children and moms (and grandmas) from one station to the other down the street.
We took turns sitting in a camping chair on the sidewalk and reading a children’s book relating to the business we were in front of (I got to read about Peppa Pig and her brother visiting the dentist). It was so much fun, and the kids were so cute!
What does this have to do with dōTERRA?
The reason I was asked to participate in the first place was because last Wednesday morning, my mother-in-law and I took a morning walk. The library was on our route, so we stopped in to return some books and pick up a video. That was when we chatted with the librarian, and she asked if I’d be interested.
And the reason I was able to take part was that I could keep my schedule open this morning from 10:00 – 11:00 a.m., when storytime ran.
This is all thanks to dōTERRA!
I work for an amazing company that lets me be a small business owner AND a mom and community volunteer at the same time.
Do I have to work today? Yes, I do. I have computer work and appointments and planning to get done. I have oils to share with people and new member overviews to get to. BUT I have a flexible schedule.
I work hard, but I work when I schedule myself to work. I’m not at the mercy of an employer’s scheduling, and I don’t have to beg my co-workers to change shifts with me when something comes up.
I’m the boss, the Momtrepreneur.
And I get to decide what takes priority on any given day.
Which means I can take a walk on a Wednesday morning with my mother-in-law when she visits.
I can serve my community by reading to kids for storytime.
I can bring my dog to the vet whenever they have an opening.
I can go on vacation with my family when they have time off from school, while some of my friends have to stay behind when their families travel because they’re on the work schedule.
And most importantly, I can get my kids off to school every morning and pick them up after school.
Today I feel so grateful for freedom.
If you want to be able to do these things, too, please ask me how you can reclaim your time freedom.
