It is good to move on, away from things/people/places that evoke negative feelings. I will not get into specifics, but I made a telephone call today to check on something and the negative feelings arose right away. At that time, I simply said, “thank you, I think I’ll pass” and hung up the phone. That door closed and time to open new ones.
I expend so much energy on a daily basis. Just the chores themselves are enough to make most people tired. I do them, every day, day in, day out. I get no vacation or sick days. I am not complaining, but I need to work smarter, not harder and preserve myself as much as possible. That means removing as much negativity from my life as I can. I did that today.
Wally and I have met so many pleasant, kind, giving people through this farming venture. We need to surround ourselves with these people, even if they may not be able to do or give us as much as the negative ones might be able to. We have to adjust and move on. We’ve done that a lot this year and it is an empowering thing.
I need to end this and head out and put the cows down below and then work in the garden for a while before it gets too hot. Wally and I worked together in it yesterday for about an hour weeding. I still have pole beans to get in to one bed of corn and squash in the other. I took the time to prune and tie up some tomatoes this morning. We got lovely rain yesterday so I know all of the vegetables and flowers are happy.
Until later …
