Last weekend I bought my first chainsaw and used it a good bit, but still have a lot of use left to go. It's hard to think at 37 years old I'd be doing stuff like this for the first time. I've had to step out of my comfort zone to get where I want to be.
With this new farm I have had a lot of learning experiences already. I've bought things I never thought I'd own. I've done things I didn't think I'd do on my own. However, the list of what's left to do to get this farm going is really weighing heavy. Luckily, I've got a support group that helps to keep me focused and somewhat sane.
The level of stress my plans has brought on is something different that I'm still learning to deal with. It's causing me to lose focus in other areas, to where I just don't know what task to complete next. It's hard to overcome sometimes.
Today I was reminded that stress builds for everyone. I also learned that one of the biggest helps is to know that you're appreciated and admired for what you do and the work ethic you do it with. That's what your support system is for, to point out how important you are. To reignite that fire inside you that makes you continue to push forward. They show you so much support that whatever is overwhelming you begins to look smaller and more manageable to conquer.
So just a thanks to my biggest supporters for doing what you do best. It's much appreciated and I hope I'm half of the help in return.
Until next time….
