Happy Freedom Anniversary to MEEEEE!!!!
Today marks the day that I:
✅ chose to move forward in my life
✅ no longer accept my misery as a unavoidable fact of my reality
✅ realized that just because everyone I’d ever known had travelled the traditional path...I didn’t have to...
✅ decided that no employer paid me enough to treat me the way that they did
✅ changed my mind about how a living could be earned.
Was I sacred? Well or course!!! ! I had no idea what the future held for me. There was one thing I knew for sure...
I was D. O. N. E., DONE with living a mediocre life.
I had to trust that God who had led me here... knew what He was doing. So I took a leap of faith and decided I was going to create the life I wanted...instead of sitting back and allowing it to create me by default.
Little did I know that 4 short and exhilarating years later... I would be sitting at my computer writing a post celebrating THIS MILESTONE!
This anniversary is a reminder of when I:
☑️ gave God control of the purpose and calling on my life.
☑️ found the FREEDOM to be who God created me to be.
☑️ let go of my past failures and mistakes
☑️ proclaimed with confidence... my past does not define me and will not hinder my future
☑️ realized that I was unique and wonderfully made...
☑️ could walk in the life I was designed to live.
☑️ began to embrace my strengths and who I am... really owning it ...
☑️ quit focusing on what I am not.
☑️ stopped comparing myself to others... and trying to copy them.
☑️ discovered a God vision and saw a new direction for my life.
☑️ became intentional.. boldly walking in the direction set out before me...
☑️ put God values into my everyday life and business... without compromise
☑️ accepted and welcomed growth as a process
☑️ decided that no matter how hard it is... or how many times I get knocked down... I will get back up... and I will NEVER GIVE UP... because I know this journey IS WORTH IT!
Today marks the day I decided to build a Network Marketing business! And let me tell you... while I may not be at the top of the compensation plan (yet…oh I WILL get there... mark my words!)...I have something far more valuable…my freedom!
I choose what fills my days...my heart and my soul...without any worry or consideration about getting laid off... a ceiling on my income...or how I am going to make ends meet in my old age.
And because I made this choice 4 years ago, I not only get all these benefits for myself... I also
get to teach people how to do the same thing.
I get to see the small flicker of a flame in their soul ingnite... which causes them to burn with a desire to get so much more out of life. That small spark in them grows into a fiery passion to live free.
If you really stop and think about it... don't we all want to wake up each morning knowing...no matter what...we have all the resources, time and vitality to live our heart desires???
My dream is to help you get there too... because my friends...
we were meant for much greater things!...
You know it!...I know it!!!
Don’t you think it’s time to do something about it?
5 years ago I said...I will order "this oil set and diffuser"....I had no idea what I was getting into???
Now here I am... so CHANGED!
I am more confident
I am a better listener
I am developing better communication skills
I am a leader of a team
I am learning a lot about people
I am more aware of my mindset
I am stronger in my spirit
I am more driven than ever before
I am living with a purpose
I am FREE to be me
I am not afraid to try new things.
I am receiving abundance with gratitude
I am content yet ever striving to be my best
I am persistent and consistent
I am a better wife, daughter and friend
I am making a difference in my world
I am a joyful servant
I am more loving, forgiving, and kind
I am experiencing a way of life not a fad
I am super healthy and happy at 60.
THIS has come over time... and
I am still learning.
I feel more connected to my why's of life and I am discovering a lot about love, grace, forgiveness, and faithfulness.
Every day I have the opportunity to share with others how they too can experience these amazing changes.

Would you like to be a part of our team?
Just 10 years ago I began a journey to learn about living healthier… especially since I was watching my parents decline… spending much of their retirement money on prescriptions and healthcare costs. But the worst part was the concern about the enjoyment and quality of life. I feared what might happen to me. I didn’t want to get on the merry-go-round of traditional medicine. I saw where that led.
My desire was to be like my friend Alyce who was not only “aging gracefully” but with vim and viggor. I wondered what her secret was? I am glad she shared it with me, that I listened, and acted on her wise advice.
Do you want to know the secret to getting older while still living with wellness, purpose, happiness and abundance?
I share my personal experience and research with you for your benefit. *I am not a doctor. I am not here to diagnose, treat, or cure any of your illnesses. The content is for informational purposes only.
As the years went by I found it harder to maintain my weight, get enough sleep, and concentrate. I lacked energy, discovered new muscle and join discomfort, plus I often felt overheated. Have you ever felt like things were creeping up on you and you were slowly loosing the battle? The struggle was real,,, but I was determined to find solutions that were natural and didn’t break the bank.
My plan was to start with my eating habits and exercise. That seemed logical… don’t you think? I was dedicated and consistent with the plan. But it seemed I kept hitting a wall… like what I was doing just wasn’t enough. There had to be something more… I didn’t know what to do, where to turn or who to ask. I was overwhelmed by all the conflicting information and opinions. That is when my friend Alyce invited me to a wellness class. I wish I could say I went the first time she invited me… but I was a bit skeptical. She kept talking about these oils and how wonderful they were. I told her that I was now using the right kind of oil “olive and coconut”. She just laughed and said, “No, not that kind of oil.” What other kind was there? I had no idea what she was talking about. Thankfully she did not give up on me. I finally gave in and drove six hours to her class. I only have one regret… that I didn’t listen to her sooner.
I was hooked from the very first whiff of that beautiful aroma. A new learning journey began which was the missing link to not only maintaining and supporting my wellness but actually improving it. And it was much simpler than I ever thought it would be. The community of support, resources and encouragement that I got also made it fun. I felt like I belonged. However, not everyone was as excited as I was. Many of my family and friends thought I had gone off the deep end with this toxin-free stuff laughing and scoffing at my new lifestyle. But that didn’t stop me, because I just knew with my knower that it was right for me.
In the last 5 years I have share my new passion with over 400 families to help them transform their homes into a non-toxic environment. It is incredibly rewarding to see so many families benefit from using essential oils and plant based oil-infused products. Not only that… I have received over $18000 in free products from this generous company and earned extra income by sharing with others to pay for all my household products and then some. If you are ready to create a healthy, abundant, and toxic-free life… you’ve come to the right place! Supporting a healthy body with essential oils has never been easier
The most important part of this journey has been the transformation that has happened inside of me. I know how frustrating it can be when you don’t feel at home in your own body, especially when it feels like you have tried everything. I have discovered what we think matters…thus I have learned to take my thoughts captive and choose my words carefully. I believe I will “age gracefully” and live with vim and vigor for the rest of my days. The way I look at health and my attitude toward aging have been transformed. I may be getting older but I am not getting old… because I have the knowledge, beliefs, attitudes, and products, I need to succeed, not to mention a support team to encourage me and hold me accountable.
What would you do with greater wellness, purpose and abundance?
There is a time and things in life we are chosen to do. We don't know when we are going to be called to go home to heaven. That is why I am spurred on to live every day as if it is my last day. We just never know when that day will come.
Each one of us can impact someone's life every day. God gave each one of us something to do. You are here for a reason. I give horsemanship lessons, spirit horse retreats and share the healthy lifestyle of Young Living because I chose to serve others, and to embrace my calling with gratitude. That is why I am happy.
QUESTION NUMBER ONE – “Are You Happy?” 🙂
"Are you happy with the way you’re feeling in your day to day life?"
“Are you happy with the way you’re feeling in your body right now?”
If the answer is not a definite "YES" then ask yourself the rest of these questions and think about your answers.
QUESTION NUMBER TWO – “Do you have a plan to change that?”
It all starts with recognizing there are things you need to change and then creating a workable plan and sticking to it. A plan alone is a good thing, but I have noticed that committing to it to the end is the challenge. Those who persevere are the winners even if their plan isn't the best one. Those without any plan and who are not willing to sacrifice and keep going when it is tough will never see the changes they desire. So get a plan, any plan even if it is a weak one, then committ to it and don't give up. If you do you will be further ahead than most everyone else.
QUESTION NUMBER THREE – “Do You Want to See One?”
I have learned that not everyone is ready to change. They are very comfortable wearing the jersey they have had on for a long time, even if it is not working for them. It is all about timing. Are you ready or not? When you are ready you will give yourself permission to change and expand your world even if it is uncomforable to do so, even if it is not what everyone else is doing. When you are ready to quit living in the past and live in the present time, the right people and opportunities will come along to assist you. Will you recognize it? Or will you let the nay sayers still your dreams?
QUESTION NUMBER FOUR: Is your life working? Or are you fooling yourself?
I evaluate my life daily. I remind myself I am not a victum and I choose not to escape the difficulties but to love and empbrace life in order to make a difference in the world. There are simple NO MORE EXCUSES! Choice is what it takes to make changes. We can change our beliefs which will change our attitudes which will change our behaviors. We can change how we see ourselves.
QUESTION NUMBER FIVE: Is you life successful? Does your life make a difference? When the sunsets are you satisfied with what you have accomplished.
My life is full of deep burning purpose. I have dealt with my own personal insecurities. When others talk bad about me I reach back and grab my purpose. Choose life! Choose success! Don't ever get so satisfied that you quit.
QUESTION NUMBER SIX: Are you fulfilled with what you do? If not, I encourage you to find out what's missing. I believe that seekers will discover the truth they need. Without a purpose it is quite difficult to find fulfillment. Believe in who you are and the god given power he has give you. Take responsibility for choices, you can be whatever you desire to be.
QUESTION NUMBER SEVEN: Are you a spectator in life? Do you care what happens? In other words "Are you rowing your boat through life? Or are you still tyring to get in the boat? Are you trying to ride the wave of life without putting your boat in the water?
We all have a choice. Nobody can take that away from you. Freedom of Choice is yours. To not participate or be a spectator is a choice. We decide. We can make choices that defeat what we want or we can choose to be all in, with actions that often take us out of our comfort zones, but result in victories, if we stay the course. There are many ways to travel through life be sure to choose one.
QUESTION NUMBER EIGHT: Am I afraid of success? Are you caught in your own web?
We are the victim of our own choices. You can change. It is all about choice. When you are presented with an opprotunity don't say "I don't want to do that because it builds a wall around you that self sabatoges the blessings." How can you make a judgement until you tried it. Don't say - I don't want to do that. Don't set yourself up with I can't or won't. Don't shut the doors or build walls. Don't shut the life out. Leave doors open to experience life. Eliminate I can't or I'll try from your vocabulary. We can change. God have given you the power to change.
QUESTIONS NUMBER NINE: What kind of emotions are you ruled by? What emotion are you hanging onto?
Emotions rule the world, both good and bad. Everything in your life is determined by an emotional energy. The emotion is then manifest in the physical. They are the most powerful tool you have for both creativity and destruction. They can drive you to greatness or to the grave. You can take charge of your emotions or they will take charge of you. Don't allow negative emotions to dictate what you do. The key to change in life is acceptance, or acknowledgement, and then embracing everything with gratitude. We are by nature ungrateful. Everyone of us can show more gratitude to our Creator.
QUESTION NUMBER TEN: What kind of words do you use? Are you concsious of your language?
Pay attention to your talk. Speak only that which you choose to come into manifestation. Think twice before you manifest what you say. Align your words with your highest good because your mind takes what you say literally. Speaking is self-fulfilling prophesy. Words are spirit formed into matter. If you clean up your language miralces will happen.
Take the words I WANT... out of your vocabulary, and replace it with:
I choose... I can... I am... I will... I have... I love... I create... I enjoy...
The purpose of this blog is to encourage you in your career, business, life purpose to live the abundant life with gratitude and joy.
If you got value out of it, please let me know.
If you want to join my Sandhill Oils team where we share wellness, purpose and abundance with the world, it is an unlimited opportunity for those who are willing to apply the principles above. We will train, support and encourage you to success.

She is my Young Living Leader who I respect and honor greatly. Please read this to the end with an open heart and mind. You will be glad you did. It is a great story, told from the heart by a woman who cares.
“IF YOU HADN’T MADE A MOVE WHEN YOU DID,
NONE OF US WOULD BE WHERE WE ARE TODAY!”
By Sherma Cundall
She was talking to ME!……… one of the gals after our Young Living, “Live Your Passion Rally” last Saturday here in Wheatland, Wy.
It caught me by surprise…..and a little shiver ran up my spine! Really? Yes! Really!! There were about 50 of us in the room that afternoon, learning, sharing, laughing, munching on goodies and just enjoying being together! Fifty may not sound like many but let me tell you a little about those 50! Most of them are committed to network marketing and they love what they are doing!
They love teaching people about living a chemical free lifestyle.
They love hanging out with people that are striving to stay healthy naturally.
They are making a difference in the lives of the people they love!
When I asked them to stand up if they had ever reached the level of Star in Young Living, all but a few stood up! Get that?? The majority in that room get a check from YL every month. I didn’t count how many have reached the level of Executive but there were many! Their average check would be $549! And there were 10 in that room of 50 that had reached the level of Silver! The average monthly paycheck at that level is $2200! Two in that room are pushing hard to reach the level of Gold this month! Gold is a monthly paycheck of about $6000! And me, myself and I…..I’m knocking on the door of Platinum…and the average monthly check at that level is $14,700!
How did I get here? Slowly, like a turtle! Some get there fast…like Mr Rabbit…but not me….I’m slow…..but I still got here…and that check still shows up every month! I never intended to make this a business. I was happy just sharing oils and the stories that go with them.
For years I didn’t tell ANYONE there was a business attached and they could make money if they wanted to. Even though I started using oils in 2003, it was 2010 before I started keeping track of what was happening and why. I reached the level of Silver in April of 2010 with 107 distributors and Gold in June of 2013. Up until last year I was still terrified to tell people they could make money just by telling their story! I had to grow out of that craziness!!
Just think about the 10 people I mentioned above and how that check has changed their lives! It might only be $100 but that can buy food or clothes for the kids! Do you think they’re glad I kept plugging along like a turtle, teaching and sharing a little now and then! I think they are!!
And what about Jerry and I? We grew up ranching and loving every minute of that life. We married and raised our 4 kids on the Cundall Family Ranch north of Wheatland. In the late 8o’s and early 90”s we got in financial trouble when the interest rate went from 8% to 20% on some of the ranchland we had purchased.
Due to circumstances we could not control, we chose to leave the ranch we loved so dearly, the home we built and the life we thought we would be a part of forever! We made some drastic changes that were devastating at the time. We had many, extremely stressful years, both emotionally and financially.
But this new life…our Young Living Life, has given us such wellness, purpose and abundance!!! We have been to Ecuador together, on a cruise, to northern Canada on a crazy fun Young Living Project and it goes on and on.
We have wonderful friends all over the world!! We travel to see our kids when we want to and the check shows up in our bank account no matter where we are! Would we have been able to do any of that if we were still ranching? Not a chance, because there was never enough time or money!! We are doing things we never dreamed possible!!
It’s exciting to think about those 2000 families that are re-writing their health story because I stuck with it. I am humbled and grateful! I am grateful for network marketing, the best business model in the world! People from every walk of life are doing it….lawyers, doctors, accountants, dad’s, mom’s, grandma’s, nurses…people everywhere! Why are they doing network marketing? If you were to ask one of the couples at last weeks event, they will tell you it’s because they can now both be home to raise their 7 beautiful children….to homeschool them and be a part of every minute of their growing up years! Another will say, “To help out with the family finances, homeschool our 2 children and take a family vacation to Disneyland for the first time ever!”
Is it for you? You are the only one that can answer that question! If you’re curious about it, let me know! But if you’re not, I hope you can read my story and be encouraged….know that you can do things that you never dreamed possible! Know that you can step out of your comfort zone, open new doors and “ Live The Life You Have Imagined!”
