A tremendous amount of folks I know are on the cusp of a huge life change. New jobs, health problems, moving, life changes, relationship changes. It’s like the universe tilted us on our side and is watching us all fall back into place. It is easy to blame our circumstances on others. Even if they have a role in it, our choices are ultimately what will design our path. Sometimes there are bigger things at work and the universe needs a little help getting us to the train station for the next part of our journey here on earth. People, circumstances, and even tragedies help shape us, help us grow, strengthen, learn, and move through this life with intention and wisdom.
There were many factors that went into us losing our farm dream. We really thought that we would be here for a very long time. We spend thousands….and thousands of dollars from our final product sales from the Apothecary, the Herbal class tuition, and income tax return on promoting and building this farm so the real tragedy for us was that we are broke and lost all our money on a dead end venture. Not the end of the world.
We really love this lifestyle. We like roughing it, working hard for everything we need, from wood to cheese. We love the endless prairie and the sound of owls. Sometimes when we can’t see a new path things have to happen to force us into that new journey. And for us, it was to lose everything. Well, not everything, we have our family. And each other. And great friends. And hope. And our next step in our journey that I am getting really excited about and will tell you about tomorrow.
I worry about my daughters finding a place to live, I worry about….well, I can’t worry. We all know that everything works out beautifully in the end. Every path has its tripping stones and beautiful rainbows. Everything will work together to put us all on the perfect path.
If you are on an unknown path in this time of transition, keep your chin up and see the rainbow! This life is a beautiful place of wonder with Creator’s fingerprints everywhere. Don’t find fault, don’t place blame, don’t cry too long, find a remedy. It’s right around the corner! By the way, that fortune came out of my fortune cookie this past week!
