Good morning ... oh happy day, it’s FLOWERS 🌷 for YOU Friday!! My way of sharing the joy of receiving flowers! Look at these GORGEOUS Iceland Poppies!!! So delicious, you might just want to eat them.. right? 😍 A perfect pick-me-up for this grey, chilly, raw “spring” day!
So, I’ve gotta tell you peeps... this week my head has been chalk-full of self doubt. Ugh. I can’t seem to get out of my own way, and my mind is racing with all the “what are you crazy?” , “you can’t possibly make this work!”, “you’ll never find just the right property”, “girl, you’re just too freaking old to do this farmer thing!”, “this can’t possibly be done solo!”.... endless. self. doubt. Oh it’s LOUD negative self talk folks!! Do you ever do this??? 🤔 Let your head try to talk your heart out of going forward with a big decision??? Sheesh, if ever I needed parents, now would be the time 😓 I have to tell you.... I’d be lying if I told you I wasn’t green with envy when I see women (ok so social media can be a total stab to the heart)being loved on, cheered on and supported by their parents, especially by their moms 💔It’s super hard being an orphan, especially when your mom just opted out (eeek, maybe that’s TMI for IG or FB😩) I could really use one of those good old fashioned mom-pep-talks right now, but instead I’ll have to find a way to change my narrative myself! I guess what I’ve learned over the years from flying solo is .... from what I can see, it’s wonderful, amazing in fact, to have an unconditional loving support system but when it comes down to it.... in order to make big changes or accomplish anything significant or important in this life, we all have to be able to silence the negative self talk and learn to be our own cheer leaders, right? That in order to move forward in life, our own inner narrative has to be one of support and encouragement, no matter...no matter how much outside cheering we get, or from what source, the bottom line is, whatever the matter at hand, we have to believe it in our own heart❤️ in order to put one foot in front of the other. Bottom line, it’s our own inner strength that is ultimately the catalyst for everything!
