Sometimes when things, people or opportunities exit our life, we don’t understand. Trust it is to create space for the amazing things to come. Be thankful for the space created. It is all for your growth and abundance.
We are all here to learn and live our purpose. The thing that brings you joy each day, that drives us to get out of bed and follow that desire. Do it boldly, with purpose and courage.
Your greatest life and self are waiting for you.
This weekend we were at the Farm Where You Live event. It was an amazing weekend of connecting with other homesteaders and learning from those passionate about the skills and knowledge they have acquired. Guest speaker Joel Salatin spoke on the 7 fears we encounter when homesteading. Honestly, it applies to pursuing any dream. Fear of not succeeding, of not knowing enough to start, making mistakes, losing money, are all boat anchors holding us back. Just start. Do one small step in the direction you want. If you want to garden, plant one plant. Cook from scratch, pick one recipe and master it. Learn to raise animals? Volunteer or intern at a farm. Your dream is waiting for you, all you need to do is step your fears and be relentless in pursuit of the life you are meant to live.
I was recently asked if I thought I bit off more than I can chew with this project. 2 acres, 2 homes to completely renovate, a garden to start, learning to raise chickens and other animals, being away from friends and family. It does sound like alot in that context, but I have a clear vision of what I want. The most clear I have ever had. In the past, it was to be the best I could be in the moment. Wife, mom, friend. Now, I clearly see a life that will being me joy, my spouse, my kids and my grandkids. I have a spouse that shares that vision. We are building a legacy. Something I never imagined when I was younger. To become more than you thought possible before, you have to think it into existence. You have to believe it. Pick thoughts that grow your dreams.
In life, as we work towards our goals, it is hard to stay in the moment and appreciate all the abundance we already have. When we are focused on where we are going, it is easy to miss the little joys we have in our everyday life. This week, take time each day for gratitude for where you are and who you are. The journey towards your goal is yours to be proud of and to enjoy.
Fill your cup with some positive energy and believe in your big goals.
Good evening all!
No matter where your day took you, you are you, you are amazing and you deserve all the happiness you hand and heart can hold.
Happy Monday!!I hope your cup is filled with motivation and excitement for the week. No matter your goal, find the joy in the journey. That is where the growth happens. By celebrating the small things in life. No one else can do things quite like you. From making the bed or doing the dishes, to how you take care of your health, to how you love your family and friends, to how you impact the world at large, that is all uniquely you. Love the process and be proud of every small step, it will lead you to a place where the outside world will not dim your shine.
