It’s Messy

Let’s be honest. No one has their shit together all of the time. Sure, there are moments when maybe you do. The bills are paid (because you actually have money), the laundry is done, dishes are clean and put away, and the dog hair is vacuumed up. Those days are few and far between. But when they happen – it feels pretty amazing.

But that’s not reality – at least my reality. Reality isn’t a checklist that’s 100% done. Reality isn’t everything put in it’s place – unless you are fortunate enough to have help or are a minimalist and I don’t know anyone in agriculture who is a minimalist.

Reality is messy. It’s chaos. It’s lots of dirt, mud, and dog hair (and kid hair). Reality is chores, mixed with kid sport, mixed with snow and lack of sunshine and frigid cold depression. Reality is a hodge-podge of elements beyond our control.

But it’s also laughing children, memorie in the making, and priceless moments. It’s sunshine on your face, wind in your hair, and the smell of burning wood.

Don’t get too caught up in what isn’t done or what hasn’t happened that you miss the grace that surrounds you. These are the moments that are often lost because busyness takes you hostage.


You have to fight for your life each and every day with a fierce desire. Otherwise, you end up wandering in the future lost and directionless – wondering what happened.

Don’t wait! Take charge of your life and make intentional decisions my friends. You’ll thank yourself later♥

Much love,
