Thoughts we can Feel

Good Monday morning, to you! If it happens to be stormy, windy and rainy by you, I hope you are able to have a pleasant day in spite of it. Whether your day is going well, or perhaps you could use a bit of motivation and encouraging words, I’m here today to offer some of quotes I’ve discovered recently that are quickly becoming my favorites. So without further adieu, here are some quotes of encouragement and strength today:

“The strongest people aren’t always the people who win, but the people who don’t give up when they lose.”

“If you keep looking back at your yesterday’s, you are not living in the gift that the present is.”

“There comes a day when turning the page is the best decision for you because you realize there’s so much more to the book than the page you were stuck on.”

“Never let your fear decide your future.”

“Note to self: I am allowed to cry. I am allowed to scream, but I am not allowed to give up. It will all get down somehow. Just breathe.”

“Admire someone else’s beauty without questioning your own.”

“Don’t start your day with the broken pieces of yesterday. Every day is a fresh start. Each day is a new beginning. Every morning we wake up is the first day of our new life.”

“You are part of a puzzle in someone’s life. You may never know where you fit, but someone’s life may never be complete without you in it.”

“Trust that every ending is followed by a beginning.”

“Use your eyes to see the needs and use your talents to meet them.”

“Don’t let your fear of the past affect the outlook of your future. Live for what tomorrow has to bring, not what yesterday has taken away.”

  • Welcome to the “Scentfully-Amusing” World of Scentsy – Courtesy of Hope, Independent Scentsy Consultant:

Hi Everyone!  I am Hope, Melissa’s sister and I am here today to talk about a passion of mine, Scentsy.  I am an Independent Consultant with Scentsy.  You may be asking yourself, what is Scentsy exactly?

Who/What is Scentsy?

Scentsy is a direct selling company and international leader in home and personal fragrance, offering stylish, innovative and customizable products designed to Warm the Heart, Enliven the Senses and Inspire the Soul.  The Scentsy Diffuser instantly fills the air with world-class fragrant all-natural and essential oils, while Scentsy’s flagship product line of scented, wax Scentsy Bars heated in handcrafted warmers provides a safe, personalized alternative to traditional candles.

Scentsy is a perfect alternative to traditional candles because they are flameless and wickless.  You can literally touch the warmer or stick your fingers in the wax while it’s warming and you will NOT get burnt!  It’s the perfect solution if you live in a home with pets or children.

Our scents come in a wide variety of products such as: Wax Bars, Essential & Natural Oils, Car Bars, Travel Tins and more.  Each of our scents are categorized into collections: New Releases, Classics, Fall & Winter, Holiday, Corner Cafe, Romance, and Scentsy Man.

I’m going to feature some of our products today and talk a little bit about them.  First up is our:
