Welcome Bossy Bars!

BB_FinalLogoLrg

Welcome readers, I’m Lisa Wharton and I’m excited to introduce Bossy Bars! Bossy Bars is an essential oil soap company that is in the beginning phases of development. My main goals are to introduce people the benefits of essential oils in a new way and to honor the memory of my mom. My mom was a massage therapist and used essential oils on us all the time, she loved them and the benefits that they offered her family and so did we.

A few years ago my mom passed away suddenly from cancer. We had 6 weeks from the diagnosis to her passing. It was shocking and devastating, she was my best friend. During that time friends helped a lot, she had a friend that sent a box of lavender scented soaps and lotions, her face lit up when she received them and they helped greatly with her nausea. I will always be grateful to that friend. Shortly after she passed I was re-introduced to the oils by a friend and instantly remembered the love I had for them and felt a great connection to my mom. I started using them right away for everything from ear infections, getting the kids to sleep, anxiety and tooth aches.

Recently we moved from California to Idaho. I left my hometown and started on a new adventure with my family. One day I feeling lonely in my new state and was looking for something to distract me so I grabbed a book from my hobby pile, it was a soap making book that my mom had given me a few years ago. I had held onto it knowing that someday I would have time and space to do this. I was finally at that someday. I was excited to start a new adventure in soap making. Excited to do something new for myself that would benefit my family and others as well. Who knew I’d have to move to Idaho to get this started!

As I researched what kind of soap I wanted to make I was hit with almost instant inspiration to combine the benefits of essential oils with a great bar of homemade soap. I thought of my mom again and how much that box of soaps meant to her. Because of this I want to reach out to those that are going through cancer and start a program where you can donate a bar to a cancer patient. I will also be donating a bar for every 20 that I sell. I am excited to give back in memory of my mom, to help people help themselves, and to make this a success

Raised 7 kids while working full time and is still hard at work even while battling a very rare illness. I look up to her for countless reasons and her growing up the way she did and how hard of a childhood she has had, she grew up to be an amazing mom and grandmother.” Dani Barker

Value Being Content

“Because one believes in oneself, one doesn’t try to convince others. Because one is content with oneself, one doesn’t need others’ approval. Because one accepts oneself, the whole world accepts him or her.”-Laozi

Are you being content with who you are, where your life is going and what you are doing? These are hard questions that can strike a nerve, however, if we are willing to be honest with ourselves they can be rewarding to answer. The ability for these questions to be rewarding is directly linked to being able to be content with who we are. Then we can support ourselves in where we decide to move our life next.

Living in a world of instant gratification can teach us to undermine the value of learning through the process of change. Instead we want instant results and will make extreme changes to produce what we want. Although, an end goal can be reached, what we lose in the process of slow and steady change is great. It is through the process of change we can create new patterns that will impact many areas in our lives and therefore in the lives of everyone we are in constant contact with.

This is where being content becomes an action for progress. By definition content is being satisfied or giving approval. This should not be confused with being complacent, a feeling of quiet pleasure of security; smug satisfaction.

From someone who has to put quiet time on her to-do list, being content is not a natural state of being. However, I have learned if I am not content with who I am today as I strive to improve, I lose opportunities to understand, be happy and live each day.

Challenge: Each day give yourself approval for something you have done. It can be as small as being on time to an appointment or as big as holding your tongue.
