I regularly watch Shark Tank. Yep, it's true. Very un-hippie of me, I know! I love seeing small businesses succeed. I love watching all the thriving small businesses out there make it big. I love seeing the entrepreneurial spirit thrive in people. I watched an episode last week where a guy was pitching his product to the sharks and one of the them stopped him mid-sentence and said that she was out. Why? Because she said that he had no passion for his products. Then all the other sharks agreed and his opportunity was over just like that. It had nothing to do with how great his product was, just that the sheer lack of passion was not there for his product. This startled me a little bit and made me think, am I passionate about my products?
The thought that maybe I am not passionate made me take a step back and really think about my business and my products this past week. For one, I have been super distracted from my business these past few weeks. Namely because we are trying to buy a house. We had a contract on a great house with awesome land - that deal imploded upon itself and that dream was much harder to let go of than we thought. I told my kids they could have kittens and goats once we moved into that farm. Literally. Sigh. Try taking that dream back from 3, 5 ,7 and 13 year olds!! We are now looking for a house in town. We have looked at every house within our price range and have seen some pretty bad houses out there and anything that we might like to live in is immediately under-contract by someone else. Very frustrating. But is being distracted, the same as passionless? Nope, I don't think so. Distraction is a momentary thing. It passes.
On an up note, we looked at a house in town on Tuesday that we all really like and that will work for everyone in the family. It will work for my growing business and my husbands projects. It is pretty great for the kids too. We put an offer on it yesterday. We should know if our offer was accepted or not on Friday. Either way, this seems to have lifted the fog bank that I have mentally been stuck in over the last 5 or so weeks. Fingers are crossed. And if it is our house, it will be our house. I am at peace with that.
As I was filling orders this morning and blending essential oils for my products I realized just how happy it made me. My heart, mind, and soul were all put into action oozing with overflowing love without any conscious effort on my part. It was just there: True PASSION. The simple art of blending essential oils from one bottle to another and then into something even more beautiful ---> which in the end are my products...
The HUGE fire Pit we dug out at the beach this weekend in the shape of a sunflower...
The View from within the fire pit as the high tide came in. It washed right up to the edge of the pit where we were chillin while watching the kids play...
Sometimes life's a beach... Or it should be anyways.
Back to looking for a house...
I have the jars for the new pit pots ordered. They should get here mid week. I am super excited about these. This formula has been working so great on my husband. This weekend he showered on Saturday morning. We went to the park and played basketball for a few hours that after noon. The next morning he moved the 1 acre lawn with a push mower and we went to the park to play more basketball and ran (literally) around the park with the kids for a couple more hours. Later in the the day, my husband jokingly asked if I wanted to sniff his pits... I declined. lol. But he insisted (for several minutes). I finally caved. There was NO ODOR. NONE. I like snuggling in my husbands arms, and sometimes this has been an unpleasant olfactory experience. Not anymore.
I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am about these!!
In other news, we took a long drive through the sprawling Willamette Valley wine country back roads this weekend. It was gorgeous. If you ever have to opportunity to meander the roads though there in the lush springtime, I highly suggest it.
