Homemade with ❤️

With the current pandemic and uncertain times, it was suggested to use the time at home to catch up on some of things you always wanted to do. To learn new things and in other words to keep to mind busy by feeding it with positivity instead of fear. For me it was about learning to take better care of myself. While this involves many different aspects and can range from your diet, to getting enough rest and exercise, my focus drifted to making a few skincare products made with natural ingredients and essential oils. I have to admit that essential oils are my new obsession. I feel something is pulling me strongly into that direction, and I feel it is the next step in my journey of healing, finding my true purpose and bringing it forward to you.

What I made was an all natural anti aging face moisturizer and a sugar body scrub. I’m in love so far and can’t wait to make more. I am currently looking to make additional badges, making these available at a later point at local markets, perhaps my Etsy shop. Yes I did open it…finally, but much more has to be posted and added to the shop inventory. So far I processed and shipped one sale and I do need more practice for the process to go a lot smoother. In case you care to take a peak you can find me at youniqua.etsy.com

Stay safe out there everyone. 🙏🏼

Who am I, and why I write. I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I am the one, holding on to the silver lining when the skies are gray. I’m a believer that nothing is coincidence, but that everything has purpose. I’ve made my mistakes, don’t we all, but I see them as growing pains and they are a part of who I am today. I have lost myself in order to find myself, and I still do from time to time, but in a good way. I’m a big child who laughs until my belly hurts when life wants to be serious. Career wise: I’ve been there, done that, and I took “The jump” off the hamster wheel in an effort to change my future. I didn’t land all that soft, but I can say that I’m still proud to have found the courage to do it. Coming full circle, I had it all, and yet I was lonely and had nothing. Today I choose to be a collector of moments and I chase memories, instead of the material stuff. Less is more, and the motto is quality over quantity. You’d be amazed at how freeing it can be. I see myself as a free spirit that believes in an unconventional lifestyle. Somehow I go against the grain most of the times, not to rebel, but because it feels right to stay true to my unique and authentic self. It takes courage, and you often stand alone, but if you dare, you soon realize that it is the only way if you don’t want to lose who you are. Just like most, my past wasn’t easy and I come from a life that didn’t always give me the opportunity to be heard. Few related and even fewer cared to take the time. But that’s the past and it’s history, the future hasn’t happened and the “NOW” is truly all we ever have. In the end we all have a story to tell, and we all seek to be understood. We all yearn to be heard and accepted and still life is hard and our path is full of stumbling blocks. If we can see the lessons in adversity we may realize that the toughest moments are often our greatest teachers. There is a reason for the saying that the stars can’t shine without darkness, and it might be darkness that will show you the light.
It took a series of (un)fortunate events, to learn to glow through the pain, to learn how to dance in the rain. I believe in Magic and wonder, and the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. As an empath this old soul often feels a little too much, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Today, I am here to tell my story because I believe that it can help others. It is my hope to bring inspiration and strengths to you, while showing you that it can be done. I know you are out there, and I know you are suffering in silence. I am here to tell you that you are not alone, and your voice is being heard loud and clear. Hang on and be strong, transformation is yours. 
In light and love....Rhapsody Bohème 💙🦋

  2. Inspirational post, my dear friend. It is so important to stay interested in these crazy times and avoid a personal standstill. Live is too short to waste any days. And every day we are creative in whatever way is a good day! Hugs! Marcus

      1. Yep. We need to stay safe and then explore the world whenever it will open again, and appreciate the beauty we are missing now even more. Amazing how much we miss things that we took for granted before. Happy Sunday, my friend, and stay safe! Marcus
