In high school, I was taught that the stages of culture shock are: All is swell, All is hell, and All is well.
I've definitely experienced these stages in each country we've traveled to and lived in. If it was just visiting a country for vacation, then I didn't always experience all of these stages.
The "All is hell" stage lasted a good chunk of our first year in Hanoi as I had to not only deal with a new culture, but a new role of being a stay at home mom, my husband working crazy long hours, and dealing with frequent illness due to the new germs and pollution. I am so thankful for my friends and my essential oils that got me through that stage and into the "All is well" stage.
The essential oils actually played a huge part in getting us well and keeping us well, but also gave me a renewed purpose of helping others and building a business of my own (you can ready my story here
). I've made so many great friendships through my oil business, and have found my tribe.
Do you have a tribe? A group of friends that share the same passion? I'm lucky enough to have multiple tribes here in Hanoi.
