Feeling a bit rusty

Rustik Health logo

My perfectly imperfect logo

This is the logo my bf designed for me last summer. He literally took an Apple pen and drew it on his tablet within a few minutes. At first, I didn’t want anything to do with it – after all, your branding isn’t something you want to rush into. But I soon realized it was perfectly imperfect for me and what I stand for.

Although my bf is super supportive of me and everything I do, he has a hard time suppressing his sarcastic side. Case in point: he likes to mock my side hustle name and call it “Rusty Health”. Haha… good one… *sigh*

However, the more I mull that over, the more it kind of rings true. Despite my posts on recipes, herbs, supplements and essential oils, my health is still rusty around the edges. And it has never been more evident than this past week.

These past few days, I’ve been mostly disconnected from social media, my tribe of fellow essential oil lovers and my side hustle in general. My spark has been quenched by skin, throat and sinus issues. I hate to admit I feel like I am falling apart and have been too bummed out about it to take care of myself properly.

It’s also made me feel totally undeserving of talking about anything health-related or teaching others healthy living tips. I am le cordonnier mal chaussé as the French say. But then again, I am far from perfect and don’t expect perfection of anyone else. My health is perfectly rusty – and so is my life, business, logo, etc.!

So, from now on, I may have to lovingly call all you followers of mine my “rusties” 😉
