For five months straight, the views on this blog have risen steadily, so thank you to everyone who has been reading my silly ramblings and keeping up with our progress on the farm. Hopefully, you find something entertaining and inspiring in this blog that gets you through your day a little more easily. As long as there is an audience for this site, I’ll keep writing it for as long as I can.
For today’s entry, please allow me a moment to get a little philosophical, but I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how so many of us live our lives wishing we were at a different point. I’m just as guilty as anyone, so please don’t take that as a judgment about any individual. We go through our lives wishing we were older or younger or richer or better looking, yet not realizing that this moment in our lives right now is as good or bad as we allow it to be. Attitude really is everything, and if I focus on the good and the positive, I physically feel better. However, if I lament the loss of my youth, I feel physically bad.
My challenge to all of my readers is to stop looking at what you don’t have or where you wish you were and start loving who you are today, right now. Of course, I’ll participate in this challenge as well, and sometime down the road, I’ll write a follow up to this post asking each of you to share what you’ve experienced by doing this. Hopefully, we can all find a little more happiness, a little more peace of mind, and perhaps even a little more success from our positivity.
There’s no doubt that we’re entering into a strange, dark period in American history. We all feel it, like an unspoken anxiety hanging in the air. However, that doesn’t mean we have to succumb to the darkness. We as individuals can still live our lives to the best of our abilities and not allow the darkness to drag us under. We can still love ourselves as individuals and make something good of our lives.
