I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of missing out on my life.
I’m tired of living early a sub par life.
I’m tired of letting assumptions get in the way, and I’m so ready to find better days.
If this sounds like you, then this blog post is right for you.
And you WILL want to read ASAP.
Trust me…you don’t miss out on the review!
And you don’t want to miss out on the giveaway that I have written JUST for YOU!
Are You Missing Out?
While there are so many great things about life itself, there are so many ways in which we are missing out. Because we follow schedules and follow trends, we find ourselves oftentimes isolating ourselves from enjoying each thing.
1. Our schedule prevents us from enjoying the simple things…
Rather than enjoying things as they are, we are so focused on being better that we forget about life.
Because of this, we no longer can appreciate the sun on our face. And we can’t even appreciate the amazing smell of flowers after it rains.
(Check out the Last Blog: Appreciating Simplicity and Being Happier Today)
2. Our schedule also prevents us from enjoying spontaneity, as we worry about accomplishing everything.
Rather than enjoying each moment as it comes along, we worry about finishing all that needs to be done.
Because of this tendency of ours, we actually cut ourselves off from many fun opportunities. We cut ourselves off from enjoying a spontaneous trip and getting away for a day out in the sun. We even cut ourselves off from any NEW opportunities that were not in our plans to accomplish that day.
3. Our Technology Obsession Gets In the Way of Enjoying Our Families
Rather than enjoying the time with our families, we are often glued to our phones each day. We want to handle all of our tasks on our phones, such as the emails or Instagram comments, and oftentimes go most of the day without truly making any memories.
In this manner, I’ve seen many kids feel quite unimportant. Because their parents are so glued to their phones rather than on themselves, the kids feel left out. And instead of enjoying the vacation with laughs and so much fun, the fact is that families are truly missing out on SO much fun.
4. Our Tendency to Take People and Posts at Face Value Gets in the Way of Understanding
Rather than trying to understand each person you meet, or each post on Instagram, many of us judge solely on appearance. We like posts because of their pictures, and oftentimes miss out on the deeper meaning, as we have become obsessed with how everything looks.
Maybe if we tried to understand one another and try to see the deeper meaning behind a post, then we could all better the world we live in today! And actually enjoy our lives as they are today!
5. Our Tendency to Look for Quick Fixes Causes Us to Miss Out on the Lives We are Living
Rather than trying to live our lives as we feel best, we oftentimes get misguided into following quick fixes rather than finding sustainability. We fail and fail because the methods do not work, and find ourselves dreading each day as it comes. We don’t get to experience life as it should be lived, and we miss out on so many great opportunities because of the failure we see in ourselves each day.
6. Our Tendency to Look for Certain Things Causes us to Miss Out On All The Things That Are There
Rather than trying to take things as they are, we oftentimes try to change or glance by the things that are there. We try to change people, we try to change our situations, and we even try to change the ways we look. Rather than seeing all the things we have going for us all, we get discouraged and upset, thus missing out on the beauty of all life has to offer.
So stop missing out.
Make your day better today just by the decisions you make!
In order to change your life today, you must make several changes today. Recognize where you waste your time and make sure you don’t. Don’t try to change things that are perfectly fine just the way they are. And never try to confine someone into what they are not. Rather than assuming and seeing something untrue, try to research or ask to understand the things you never knew.
So here is your little reminder today to make your life better and don’t let anything go missing today.
OSEA (Part Two?)
While you may have seen my previous review right here: Appreciating Simplicity and Being Happier Today, you missed out on two products that are out there.
So since that blog the other day, I had the opportunity to try two other products that I MUST share! So look below for what I thought and make sure to get ready for the giveaway going on!
1.OSEA Hyaluronic Sea Serum
Let’s start with the NEW anti-aging serum that just came out…the OSEA Hyaluronic Sea Serum!
This product, which is perfect for ALL SKIN TYPES, helps smooth wrinkles and replenish dry skin, which it still is doing for me each day.
The ingredient list is minimal, as all the other products they make. And if you are interested you can view it right here: Osea Malibu Serum Ingredients
The packaging for this product was great. The GLASS bottle was strong and could easily be stored on a dresser without worrying about leaving it out. The design of the bottle and color of the product made it so appealing to just leave out and ready to go. It was such a perfect design and size that you could simply take it with you to the beach to go! And the glass protects the product, so it LASTS longer than those awful plastic containers.
But besides all of these great things, this product comes in a cute pipette bottle that reminded me of my AP Biology days! So adorable…especially for those of you that want to reminisce on those days!
I used this product after being in the chlorinated-pool and hot summer sun. It left my face feeling refreshed and lightly moisturized…perfect for a long day of fun! I also used it a few times at night and immediately getting out of the shower. And while oftentimes moisturizer is too much, this was perfect! I used it right underneath the next product which I will review right now!
2.OSEA Atmosphere Protection Cream
Next product…Just as great. Although I liked the other product more, this is a necessity!
This product, which is perfect for NORMAL/COMBINATION SKIN, helps to hydrate and provide a barrier against visible damaged caused by dry climates, wind pollution, and air pollution that we see today!
The ingredient list is minimal, as all the other products they make. And if you are interested you can view it right here: OSEA Atmosphere Protection Cream Ingredients
The packaging for this product was great. Pretty much the same as all OSEA products there are to try!
As I said before, the GLASS bottle was strong and could easily be stored on a dresser without worrying about leaving it out. The design of the bottle and color of the product made it so appealing to just leave out and ready to go. It was such a perfect design and size that you could simply take it with you to the beach to go! And the glass protects the product, so it LASTS longer than those awful plastic containers.
But besides all of these great things, what set it apart was the pump bottle that just allowed the minimal amount of product to come out! This prevented any waste of product, which will make it last. Making it quite the great buy for the length of time it will be used!
As I said before, I used this product after being in the chlorinated-pool and hot summer sun after using the serum I wrote about above. It was very light compared to the advanced protection cream I reviewed last time (Check here: OSEA Review). And because of this, it was perfect for me in the summer!
To Buy or Not to Buy?
Here’s the thing… I would honestly buy anything from this company.
While you may doubt my words, I loved every product I was sent, and the way that it works. I love the SIMPLICITY of the ingredients, the PACKAGING of the bottles, and the PRODUCTS themselves. While some of them are favorites and some of them are meant for different times of the year, I love them ALL. The spray and serum were probably the most unique as the coloring and packing were different from other products I know. The other moisturizers that I received were more simple, but were still great.
So based on the experience of these select products of OSEA, I WANT TO TRY THEM ALL!
Just looking at their website, I see all the things I want to buy. There are sets of products that are meant for all skin types, and have a variety of products that I must try. They have exfoliation sets, serums, moisturizers, and so many other NATURAL things. And I can’t wait to try these new things!
So there you have it, but before you decide, here’s a little coupon for those of you who HATE to pay for shipping!
