Ebb and flow

houseIt’s been a particularly busy time at work.  Sometimes I feel like I will never get caught up and it’s really more about managing the chaos so that things don’t slip through the cracks than actually getting caught up.  Yesterday was particularly trying and a good friend reminded me to see the blessings in my life.  So on a scale of 1 – 10 (with ten being good), I have a lot of 10 or near 10 items in my life – my hubby, my kids, my family and friends, some really great co-workers, a beautiful place to call home… I could go on.  It’s really all about perspective.  I tend to be a worrier, which I excel at (why can’t I have a real talent!), and in reality it’s such a wasted emotion. Really it does nothing except creating feelings of anxiety.  Time to focus on what’s really important … it’s a choice, and today I’ll choose that.

Farm girl wannabe, enjoying life on the Big Island. We have a small five acre farm along the Hamakua coast. While we have a few crops we grow to sell, we are trying to create a self sustaining lifestyle on our little piece of paradise. I set up this blog initially to help me keep track of different things we grow and how well they’re doing, but recently decided to go public with it. I enjoy reading other hobby farm sites, and thought sharing our story a little might inspire others as they have inspired me.
