Welcome to Living Wellnessence!

Welcome to Living Wellnessence!

Thank you for stopping by   Living Wellnessence!

Living Wellnessence has been an up & coming project of mine for quite some time… and will always be a work in progress lol I am definitely not a web designer, although I am much better than when I started hehe but I am a momma with a message to share and a purpose to fulfill! I just wanted to write a short post to welcome you to this space, an introduction to my story, and let you know what you can expect.

A long story short…

As a stay at home mom, there came a time in my life where I wanted a way to help support my family, to find a hobby I enjoyed, and I craved a way to spend some time connecting with other women like me that were away from the never-ending tasks of a homemaker for small amounts of time in order to refill my cup and take part in some self-care that had been neglected for a while.

I started by joining a direct sales company called Norwex a few years ago.  Now, if you aren’t familiar with direct sales, it is where you share products with friends, family, and anyone else who may be interested. You help people to host parties at their home, or even online, so they can earn products and you work on building a team because that’s where the real income is. I have always been more of an introvert so it definitely brought me outside of my comfort zone and I was NOT a fan of home parties!


Part of the process was branding ME

Wow, I had a lot to learn! I don’t know if you have ever tried to brand a business but it was new to me lol Let me just say that there is SO much more than picking colors and creating a pretty logo.

Of course, you don’t want to be only known for the company you joined… because there are literally thousands of other ladies just like you.  YOU are your brand!

So I began to brand myself & my new at home business. Little did I know that I was embarking on a journey that would bring me into a LOT of self-exploration and I quickly discovered that I didn’t want to be a part of Norwex anymore.

Who I am…

The beginning of my self-explorations had begun even a few years before all of this other stuff. So I knew at the core of WHO I AM is my spirituality. I knew that the core of ALL of us is our spirituality!

Deep down, I wanted to support women who were going through things I had already been through, I wanted to teach women how to take back their power to care for their families more NATURALLY, and I wanted to share the transformations that are possible when you start exploring spirituality. It doesn’t even have to be about religion or using the “woo-woo” practices, but we should look at life as multi-dimensional and make it a goal to live holistically!

I had discovered my purpose!

What you can expect…

Although I am new to all of this, I am excited to be able to share and grow with all of you.

I aim to publish new blog posts at least twice a month while inviting other knowledgeable ladies to contribute in various ways. So, before you know it, there will be LOTS more to explore.

This little corner of the net is where I am able to not only share my journey with all of you, but I can fulfill my purpose! I can satisfy my other passions, explore interests, and make a meaningful impact on the world!

There will soon be product reviews, masterclasses, self-study courses, free resources and lots MORE!

16 Empowering Beliefs

16 Empowering Beliefs

Use these empowering beliefs to help you smile & thrive on your self-development journey!

Your beliefs determine your actions!

 The way you experience moments or events in your life is shaped by your habits in thinking. Those habits are actually built within both our sub-conscious and conscious belief systems. Even obstacles have a value when you can see it! You can develop convictions that will help you to feel happier and achieve more, regardless of the situation.

Consider these empowering beliefs that you can start using today to transform your life through the power of positive thinking and begin reshaping your belief systems!

Choose 1 or 2 to hang around the house, write on the mirror or even in your journal… you will want to read them regularly to begin reframing some of the current beliefs you may have.

psst… If you want to amplify the process, you can read these empowering beliefs out loud or record yourself reading them, then play them back whenever you need to feel empowered!

So, without further ado… here is our list of 16!!

8 Empowering beliefs to make you smile…

  2. I count my blessings. List each thing that you have to be grateful for. Remember to include the smaller items, like warm socks or tart cranberries. Expressing your appreciation reminds you of how truly rich you are! Practicing gratitude is well proven to improve your overall wellness.
  3. I learn from mistakes. You can make setbacks work for you by focusing on the lessons that they contain. Not being willing to fail means you are not trying. Flubbing one job interview can teach you how to ace the next one, even the greatest minds in history can attest to the importance of learning from our failures.
  4. I find meaning in adversity. Tough times can be the most rewarding phase of your life. Know that you can emerge from any challenge with greater wisdom and courage! Look back at the obstacles you’ve already overcome, and reassure yourself that you can handle what’s ahead.
  5. I embrace change. Accept that life is a series of changes. Focus on the present moment, and prepare yourself to adapt to whatever circumstances come your way.
  6. I dream big. Expand your wish list. Setting demanding but attainable goals give you adventures to look forward to each day.
  7. I practice forgiveness. Lighten your load by clearing away any resentment you’re holding onto from the past. Set reasonable boundaries while you respond with compassion when others disappoint you. Pardon yourself too.
  8. I give generously. Sharing your blessings makes you more powerful and joyful. Volunteer in your community and speak kindly to each person you meet today. Buy coffee for your co-workers or give your receptionist a flower.

8 Empowering beliefs to help you thrive…

  1. I take responsibility. You are in charge of your life. Hold yourself accountable for the outcomes you create. Celebrate the fact that you have the power to determine your own future.
  2. I apply effort. Figure out your definition of success so you know what is worth working for. Give yourself credit when you’re making progress rather than comparing yourself to others.
  3. I leverage my strengths. You have your own individual strengths that you can draw on. Figure out what you’re good at and what you want to do. Let that knowledge guide your choices.
  4. I listen to feedback. Ask for feedback so you can enhance your performance and show others that you respect their point of view. You grow faster when you gather solid input that you can translate into action.

  7. I recognize opportunities. Stay alert for promising openings. You may meet a new friend while you’re standing in line to buy your morning coffee.
  8. I try new things. Be open to experimentation. Go kayaking one weekend instead of playing tennis. Bake your own bread or knit a scarf. You may discover hidden talents.

Having an upbeat attitude increases your happiness and productivity! I challenge you to question your old assumptions and examine your belief systems so you can begin replacing them with a new sense of certainty about yourself and your future. By releasing old limiting beliefs that no longer serve you and adopting more empowering beliefs like these, you will build up your confidence and be better prepared for greater more lasting success in all areas of your life.

Your More Natural Lifestyle Awaits

Your More Natural Lifestyle Awaits

What is a more natural lifestyle and what does it mean for YOU to live more naturally?


A more natural lifestyle doesn’t mean you have to be a fitness fanatic, follow strict diets, become a minimalist or even try to save the planet!! (Granted, those are commendable endeavors… to a point!)

You heard me right!

It is NOT about going to extremes which ultimately result in being more stressed, feeling exhausted, getting frustrated and then… giving up. It makes things too difficult because as humans, our brains are meant to serve us. One of the ways it does that is by “protecting” us, but we do not need the same instinctual protections that we once did for survival.

I hear you…

You want to eat healthier and get in shape, you want to find safer alternatives for you and your family because modern medicine has failed you, you are searching for answers among ALL the noise, and you have seen first hand, the devastating effects that the standard “Modern Lifestyle” has created.

I get it! I’ve been there too and quite honestly, I’m still traveling this road right along with YOU!


BUT, guess what?!


I have found ways to incorporate these things, and then some, in a way that highlights MY beliefs, made MY decisions feel great AND empowers me to keep moving forward. My Journey inspires me to create an impact on myself, my children, my family and all those around me, to share the possibilities with as many women, homemakers and caregivers as I can.  YOU CAN TOO!

You may not have a desire to spread love, health, and happiness to everyone hahaha but I guarantee that once you get going, it will not go unnoticed, the same way that a smile can change the world for even one person, you will radiate!

I am here to share those with you, to share what I have learned along the way, and to support you when you want & need the support.

You may be saying “How do you do this, Betty?” “It’s too inconvenient, and takes a LOT of work.” or maybe that it’s “Too expensive, my family lives on a tight budget!” Well, quite frankly I used to think very same things too!

Yes, making changes does take work. You need to look for information, do research on the different methods and you will have to make YOUR OWN decisions about what is best for you and your family.  We all do! That’s part of what living more natural is all about… Let me show you?!

A more natural lifestyle IS:

  • Becoming aware of the fact that you, my friend, are a multi-dimensional being. Creating harmony within those dimensions is how you will be able to live your life to the fullest!
  • Learning WHO YOU ARE, and then learning to listen to YOU by tuning into your mind, body, and spirit. This is discovering your Essence or the core of YOU!
  • Being willing to question, confirm or even change your beliefs when necessary in order to become firmly rooted and continue to grow with confidence!
  • Understanding that nature holds powerful tools for your transformation in both health and wellbeing!
  • Making better decisions based on who and where you want to be, being both present & compassionate with where you are, at this moment!
  • Making sustainable changes while having a mindset focused on adopting the holistic perspective (multi-dimensional you + your place in the Universe), showing moderation in all you do and living intentionally!
  • Breaking free from the toxic influences and nasty chemicals is just as important… part of being human is owning our responsibility to not only our bodies but the Earth. They are the only places we have to live!

Consistent self-reflections, observations of our environment, and active baby steps are the ONLY way you will find success, feel happier and healthier, achieve the quality of life that you deserve while creating a life YOU LOVE!

Committing to YOU and your purpose is the best investment you could ever make and the Journey will surprise you! That’s how all of this started for me too, about 10 years ago, as a depressed, frustrated and confused homemaker who needed answers & started to look for another way…

Won’t you join me?!?

I’d love to hear your thoughts and experiences with living and learning more naturally!
