The Great Escape

Once upon a time, there was a young woman named Lily who lived in a small village on the outskirts of a vast kingdom. Lily was a hardworking farmer who spent most of her days tending to the fields and taking care of her family. However, Lily had always longed for something more than a simple life on the farm. She dreamed of traveling the world, seeing new places, and experiencing new things.

But fate had other plans for Lily. One day, a group of soldiers arrived in the village, announcing that the kingdom was in need of young men and women to serve in the army. Lily knew that she couldn’t leave her family behind, so she volunteered to go in her brother’s place.

Lily was sent off to the kingdom’s capital, where she was put through rigorous training. The other soldiers mocked her for her small size and lack of physical strength, but Lily refused to give up. She had a fierce determination that kept her going, even when everything seemed hopeless.

One day, Lily overheard a conversation between two high-ranking officials, who were discussing an imminent battle that the kingdom was going to fight. The officials spoke of how they knew the battle was unwinnable, but they had no choice but to send the troops anyway. Lily realized that she didn’t want to be a part of it.

That night, Lily snuck out of the barracks and made her way to the outskirts of the capital. She knew that she could be killed for deserting the army, but she was willing to take that risk. She managed to find a group of rebels who were against the war and asked to join them.

The rebels accepted Lily and taught her how to fight and survive in the wilderness. They also helped her to forge fake documents and a new identity that would allow her to move freely throughout the kingdom without being detected.

Lily spent the next few years traveling and exploring the world, something she had always dreamed of. She met people from all walks of life and learned about different cultures. Lily was finally free from her fate of being a soldier in an unwinnable war.

However, one day, Lily was discovered by the soldiers who were still looking for her. They arrested her and brought her back to the capital to stand trial for desertion. Lily was devastated, but she refused to give up. She enlisted the help of a lawyer, who argued her case in front of the court.

The court ultimately ruled in Lily’s favor, citing her bravery and willingness to risk everything to fight for what she believed in. Lily was finally free from the fate that had been imposed upon her. She was able to live the life she had always dreamed of, and nothing could ever take that away from her.

How to Use Essential Oils

There are three primary ways to use essential oils: aromatic, topical, and internal.

Aromatic Use

The most popular way to use essential oils is through aromatic use. This can be done through diffusing, or simply smelling the oils directly from the bottle. Diffusing is the process of using a diffuser to disperse the oil into the air. This is a great way to enjoy the benefits of essential oils without having to apply them directly to the skin.

Topical Use

Applying essential oils directly to the skin is the second most popular way to use them. This can be done by diluting the oil in a carrier oil and applying it to the desired area, or by using a lotion or cream that already contains essential oils.

Internal Use

The third way to use essential oils is internally. This can be done by adding a few drops of oil to a glass of water or by taking a capsule that contains the oil. It is important to note that not all essential oils are safe to take internally.

The Daily Spur-Behave

The Importance of Learning to Behave

Once upon a time, there was a little girl named Lily. She was a very wild child, never listening to her parents or teachers and always causing trouble wherever she went. Her parents had tried everything to get her to behave, from taking away privileges to spanking her bottom, but nothing seemed to work.

One day, Lily’s parents decided to take her to a behavior therapist to see if they could get some professional help. The therapist spoke with Lily for a while, trying to understand her behavior and what might be causing it. Eventually, he suggested that Lily needed to learn to behave properly- to listen to her parents and teachers, respect others, and follow the rules.

Lily was resistant at first, telling the therapist that it was no fun to behave all the time. But the therapist explained to her that learning to behave was not about taking the fun out of life, but rather about making life easier for everyone around her. When she behaved, people would be more likely to trust her, be kind to her, and let her do the things she enjoyed.

Over the next few weeks, Lily worked hard to curb her wild ways and learn how to behave. She practiced listening to her parents and following their rules, being respectful to her teachers and classmates, and exercising self-control when she felt the urge to misbehave. Slowly but surely, she began to see the benefits of behaving properly.

For one thing, her parents were much happier with her, giving her more freedom and trusting her more, which made life more enjoyable. She also found that when she behaved well at school, her friends were nicer to her and even helped her with her studies. Most importantly, Lily discovered that behaving well made her feel good about herself- she was proud of the changes she had made and more confident in her ability to get along with others.

By the end of her sessions with the therapist, Lily was a completely different child. She was still full of energy and life, but she knew how to channel that energy in a positive way, behaving well and making everyone around her happy. Her parents were thrilled and proud of her, and Lily was grateful for the lessons she had learned about the importance of learning to behave.
