Diffusing the Tension

Momming, mental health, fitness, all of the things

I’m getting old

In less than 3 weeks, I’m gonna be 33.  Let’s crunch some numbers.

  • I got my license 16 years ago (I had to wait til I was 17 for medical reasons)
  • I have been legally able to vote for 15 years
  • I have been legally able to purchase alcohol for 12 years
  • In 2 years I can run for president

Man, I wish I had appreciated my body more when I was younger.  Before the creaks and groans settled in.  I feel like a dilapidated house, appealing at one time, but dated and in need of repairs.

I want to share a little life hack for anyone in this season of life— one I affectionately call, “Shit Hurts More Than It Should.”

essential oil, young living, panaway, blue label

Take a drop of this with a little coconut oil and rub it on achy knees and backs.  It won’t turn back time.  It won’t make you able to relive your glory days.  But it will make getting old a little more bearable. (**Also perfect for head tension, because… toddler momming.)
