So many things are going on around me, all the time. It is easy to get caught up in a routine and get used to seeing the same things. I walked through my woods and meadow on Monday and found so many things that I have never seen before. Part of it is that in the last couple years I have rarely taken time to enjoy these beautiful spaces on the back of the farm. I am so focused on the farming, that I don’t see the other magical things going on around me. It was a reminder that I need to look at the farm, my life, and my future with different eyes. A friend of mine, Ann, did a sound blessing Wednesday on me and one thing she mentioned was that I should step away from my image of myself and look at the infinite possibilities of all that I am. Such a wise woman.
So what should I start stepping back from to see with new eyes? How can I change the landscape or images and impressions so I see them differently? What am I not seeing that could brighten my day and my life?
Recommend Viewing: Healthy farms and gardens have all manner of critters. Here are a few at Stone Coop Farm. Many of these help us control bugs, mice, voles, and others that eat our crops. So when we find a new friend, we stop, we share, and we celebrate that they are here. They are wonderful farm partners sharing our journey and sharing our healthy ecosystem.
