One of the challenges I have found in homesteading  is that it is easy to get caught up in the chores and busyness of the day and
neglecting the things that bring balance to our lives.

It seems every time I get a workout routine started, inevitably, a day pops up that I don’t make time, and then days go by before I get back on track. As a former fitness instructor, this is a big shift for me , not having people depending on me to keep me accountable.

Also, being so excited to learn all the things, most of my reading is about gardening or raising animals. When I am not doing that, we are watching YouTube University, as we like to call it, to learn more things.

I feel blessed to be living a life I am so passionate about, but without balance, that is when burn-out happens.

For me, this week, I am going to find balance by making time to move my body in a way that energizes me for the day.

Where do you need to strike balance right now?

Today is my husband’s birthday. There is something magical about starting a week with a celebration.  It is a beautiful reminder that Monday’s can be a day to look forward to, not to just dread. Life is short, celebrate each day, even the Monday’s.  Here is hoping your Monday and your week is magical and you find those small moments worth celebrating

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.

Whether you are a homesteader or starting any new direction in life, there will be people that will not understand.

Why make yogurt when you can buy it? Why grow vegetables and deal with bugs when you can go to a farm stand? Why have so many animals?

Pursuing success looks different for all of us. What brings your heart joy and your soul peace is what brings you into your true self and creates a beautiful, abundant life.

To me, that is success.

It is okay if people in our lives don’t understand. We may not understand the path they are on either. By showing grace and compassion to one another and to ourselves, our definition of success becomes limitless.

Keep following your dreams, no matter how big or small. Reach out to others pursuing similar goals for support and knowledge. Make all the mistakes to keep learning and growing.

Your version of success is waiting for you.

Each sucess begins with us believing in ourselves and making the most of each opportunity that comes our way. Use this affirmation for any area of your life you want to work on: career, relationships, health.

Building a homestead from the bottom up it is easy to get overwhelmed but by taking each day and embracing the lessons that life presents in that moment, that is where the growth happens.
