Sustainable Living Post #1 Summer Slostice 2014

It has been brought to my attention, by my own feelings, that doing things in my own time and efficiancy with small work challenges are better for my body than rushing to show the world that I can homestead over night. I have so many tasks on my plate. I will be able to achieve a bit of relief when I at least acknowledge that my way of doing things is just fine, that I no longer have to do it exactly the way I was taught but do it in a similar fashion that works for me.  Was that a run on? Lol So I thought I would share a post that has been flotting around social media that I feel  supports this way of sustainable living.
I must remember that I am farming for joy and balance and peace of mind. I trust that this helped someone the way it has helped me. Happy Summer Solstice!

Transitioning from job to joy!

Today has been a day of hope. Hope the day goes by good. Hope I can deliver more flyer's for the new market and hope that it will rain on my baby plants on the farm. Hope I will have the energy to work on my own farm after leaving my current job for today. Even though I am doing what I enjoy it's still work that requires energy. I feel so guilty sitting on the porch just observing the plants. So I am going to need to create a new work flow for transitioning from one type of job to a home business of joy.

1. Create To Do Lists
 A. They will help you stay organized.
2. Create Time Schedules
 A. They will help your tasks to be efficient.
 B. Be In Bed By 9:30 PM!
3. Meditation Before & At The Your Day/ You Time
 A. Your time will keep you focused and centered.
4. Stick To The Schedule
 A. Scheduled routines will become habits which will keep you organized, prepared and ready for   
 community guest that will stop by the farm
5. Chant this daily: "I am a farmer and I love what I am doing".

I am going to take my own advice. I am giving it at least 21 days. I am sure I will have gained some new good habits, happier plants, rest and a healthier me. Happy transitioning!
