Something Small to Smile About

"Something Small to Smile About" is a community gratitude journal of sorts.
Follow this link to join & invite your friends!

An uplifting quote or picture will be posted each day,
& members are invited to share something small (or big) that they're thankful for in that day's post.

Reflect back upon your day & find something good that happened,
something you're grateful for,
or something that made you smile.

Showing gratitude for the little things
has been one of the best ways to change my outlook & perspective on life.
Whenever I'm in a rut,
I like to look back at the things I'm grateful for
or the things that put a smile on my face
to help me cheer up & get going again.

My hope is that people will feel more excited about the little "wins" in their life,
& everything that makes them smile.
When we share positivity in a community setting,
it helps each & every one of us have a happier heart.

And on those days when we feel like everything is going wrong & we have nothing to smile about,
we can turn to this group,
feel the positive vibes,
& find something small to smile about.

Just a few group rules:

<< Be Kind & Respectful >>
This is a happy place to share things that have brightened our day,
so don't say anything to bring others down.
I won't give warnings on this rule.
Be kind or be banned.
Let's work together to create a welcoming environment & treat everyone with respect.

<< Share Your Happy Moments in the Daily Thread >>
Seeing as how this is a community gratitude journal,
let's do our best to share our happy moments in the daily thread.
This helps keep the group organized.
You can share anything you're grateful for that day - big or small.

<< No Marketing, Promotions, or Spam >>
Please don't market or sell any products here.
This is a safe place for happy thoughts & community, not a place to build businesses.

If you can commit to keeping these rules,
we would LOVE to have you join our gratitude community!
Also, please invite your friends...
We want to spread happiness
- the more the merrier!

Postpartum Emotions & Stress Away

I had a LOT of postpartum emotions after my last pregnancy & felt like a hot mess.
Nothing & nobody could help me get out of my funk when it would hit,
& every little thing would send my mind thinking about the worst possible outcome.
Sometimes it would hit me like a train & I would be frozen in my thoughts,
feeling completely & utterly

Imagine you're driving down the freeway.
Someone switches over into your lane without checking their blindspot
& you have to swerve out of the way to prevent being hit.
The adrenaline kicks your survival instincts in gear
& your heart is pumping with fear,
but that feeling never leaves.
Or you feel like you're drowning & can't breathe,
when in reality,
you're just sitting on the couch.

"It's like having super powers but having no control over them.
It's the strength of  the Hulk, but it comes out as anger.
It's Harry Potter's invisibility cloak, but you can't choose when you get to wear it.
It's wanting to be as brave as Batman, but being too afraid to leave the bat cave.
It's knowing you are a superhero, but you are stuck in a body/mind that won't let you.
It's wanting to save the world, but you can't even save yourself."
-- Bex A.--

Those are some of the things I was feeling, even with medication.
It was rough.

My friend introduced me to Young Living essential oils.
Although skeptical, I decided to get a kit & try them for emotional support.
I was blown away by how much Stress Away helped me get through those debilitating emotions!
I felt like a completely different person whenever I used it
& was able to calm down & regain my focus whenever I was frozen in my whirlwind of emotions.
I wasn't expecting such a welcoming community
full of hope, inspiration, encouragement, & friendships!
I can't even begin to describe the gratitude I feel for our team & especially this business.
It has truly changed my life for the better in more ways than I could imagine!

I'm not going to lie...
I still feel those emotions from time to time,
but now I have an arsenal of support that I didn't have before -
including amazing products that support my well-being
& an amazing team that cares about my well-being.
These help me overcome the challenges that come with those intense emotions much easier.

I know I'm not alone in this.
Many people deal with those same emotional challenges I mentioned earlier,
& we ALL have some sort of stress in our lives.
Stress can manifest in a number of ways,
& what's stressful to one person may not be a stressor to someone else.
BUT, we all have it to some degree...

I'm going to be giving away a bottle of Stress Away at one of my Intro to Oils classes later this month
so that someone else can benefit from this amazing blend
& the welcoming community that our team has to offer!

∙∙∙ Follow me on IG @rootedinpurelove or join my product education group on FB ∙∙∙
∙∙∙ Join the Intro to Oils class where the giveaway will be taking place ∙∙∙
∙∙∙ Invite a friend that you know could benefit from Stress Away & this community ∙∙∙

Note: This giveaway is exclusively for those that aren't currently Young Living members. Members already have access to these amazing products & communities, & I want to bless someone that is currently lacking those things as I once was.

Positive Affirmations

I'm a firm believer in the power of conscious language & positive thinking.
Sonya Swan shares how it changed her life in this video.
I encourage you to watch it, try it, & see how your life can change as well!
Also, Oola.
What is Oola?
"It's a state of awesomeness.
It's living a life that is balanced & growing in seven key areas of health & well-being.
It's unlocking the potential for greatness that lies within each of us.
It's finding the true purpose & meaning for your life."
Take the OolaWheel test & focus on improving one of your weaker areas of life.
Anywho, here are my daily affirmations (including the Oola affirmations)...

I am fit, healthy, disciplined, & strong.
I am financially free & living abundantly.
I am unconditionally loving, patient, & respectful.
I am pursuing my purpose in life.
I am grateful, humble, & fully connected.
I am blessed with empowering, healthy relationships.
I am pursuing the joys of life.

My name is Marissa Hassie,

I am a daughter of a king
- our Heavenly Father -
who loves me & knows me by name.
I love Him & will stand as a witness of God
at all times, & in all things, & in all places,
& I will share the Gospel through charity & service.
I am a wonderful wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, & person.
I am organized & focused
& have let go of clutter to maintain a clean home.
I know how to balance my personal, work, & church obligations.
My past has no hold over my future,
& neither does the adversary.

My word is GROWTH this year.
I pray that a year from now
I will look back & see how far I've come.
I'll be able to see personal growth in the forms of
& patience.
I'll be able to see financial growth
from my business & from sticking to our budget.
And most importantly,
I'll be able to see spiritual growth
as I place my faith in the Lord
& allow Him to guide my path.

And let us not be weary in well doing:
for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

One Year Later

It's been a year now.
One year ago,
I made the decision to bravely jump into the business side of Young Living
& started 'Rooted in Pure Love'
as part of my "one big thing" for MOPS.

Little did I know that this decision would stretch & mold me into a better version of myself.

I had no idea that I would become
more confident,
more outgoing,
more caring,
more prayerful,
more in tune with the Spirit.

I didn't recognize the flame that would ignite inside of me
or know that I would have such a passion for what I do.

I didn't anticipate how much I'd fall in love with
the products,
the company,
& my team.

The products have changed my life.
The community has changed my life.
Young Living has changed my life.

If you're yearning for a sense of
wellness, purpose, abundance, belonging, or adventure,
I invite you in.
If you have big dreams & want to change the world,
I invite you in.
If you simply want to make positive changes for your health & well-being,
I invite you in.

Opening that door has been one of the biggest blessings in my life.
I can't wait to look back a year from now
& see how much farther I've come.
This was just the beginning.

In honor of this one year anniversary,
I'm offering a $25 product credit to everyone that purchases a Premium Starter Kit this month.
You can choose from a diffuser + oils kit,
a Savvy Minerals makeup kit,
a Thieves cleaning kit,
or a NingXia kit.

Check them out & order here:

If you're already a member on my team, share this deal with your friends
& when they sign up using your referral link,
you'll get a $50 check from Young Living
& a special thank you gift from me as well! (:
I'd be happy to send you your referral link if you need it.

When you're ready, take the first step towards change & reach out to me.
It's not easy,
but by golly it's worth it in every way!

Big Dreams

Justin & I were talking about our big dreams the other day.
You know...
The kind that seem completely out of reach
unless you win the lottery, retire, & have time to do all the things.

We talked about things like flight lessons,
traveling the world,
dream cars,
airsoft arenas,
visiting every Disney park & Club 33,
giving freely,
& fun adventures that will bring our family closer.

He mentioned that Warren Buffett is once again offering to give away $1-million-a-year-for-life
any of his employees that manage to get a perfect March Madness bracket,
& jokingly asked if I would want to quit my Young Living business if we won.
Without skipping a beat,
I told him no.

I love my job.
It has been such a huge blessing in so many ways.
I love the products.
I love the community.
I love the flexibility.
I love the compensation plan.
I love it all.
I've been able to stretch myself in ways I never thought I could
& have seen so many positive changes in my life.
Quitting is not an option.

Whether we get our "big dream" money from Uncle Warren or Young Living,
I'm grateful to know that our big dreams are within reach.

So what about you? Where would you like to travel? What are YOUR big dreams?

Oh, hey... I have a blog. I should probably post something.

Once upon a time
a girl started a blog.
It was a quiet little blog
with a very small following.
But she loved it.

Around three years ago she had some strange health concerns arise.
They made it difficult for her to think & concentrate
which in turn made it difficult to work on her blog posts.

Her regular posts began to dwindle,
but she kept her link party going
since it didn't require as much thought on her part.

Most of her symptoms began to improve
aside from the occasional flare-up,
but her anxiety continued to worsen.

Her schedule & her anxiety grew over the summer
as she prepared herself for her firstborn's segue to Kindergarten.

She could no longer maintain her blog.
Before she knew it her link party came to an end
& all was quiet.

She gave birth to her fourth child,
Little Snowflake,
at 5:30pm on 1/9/17,
exactly 100 years after the child's great-great-grandmother was born (in 1917).
Her sweet baby weighed 8 lbs 1 oz & was 20" long
which shocked everyone since her mother was induced three weeks early
due to symptoms of preeclampsia.

A few hours after delivery
they had to put the young mom on a 24 hour magnesium drip
because things weren't quite right.
Her reflexes were off,
her bleeding was heavy,
her platelets were low,
& they were still keeping close tabs on her blood pressure.
She ended up staying an extra couple nights
until the doctors felt comfortable sending her home.

She called her OB a week later
since she was still dealing with heavy bleeding
with no signs of slowing.
After a couple days of bed rest
they asked her to come back in to the office to do an ultrasound.
Her doctor looked at the findings
& scheduled for an emergency D&C
to be done right after her appt.

Apparently there was some leftover tissue left behind from the delivery
which was causing all the heavy bleeding.
After this surgery,
her platelet count improved & her bleeding stopped.

It was time for her to finally relax & enjoy her precious newborn.

Stay tuned for:
Colic & Reflux
One Big Thing

Justin & I have been talking about "Four" a lot lately.
No, we aren't referring to Tobias from the Divergent series.
We're talking about this Zootopia spin-off trailer...

If you haven't seen Zootopia or the trailer that was based off of,
feel free to watch this one for reference.

Hilarious, right?
I love Flash's slow reaction.






But really though...

"Four" is due January 30th (:
