get ‘er done

I am sitting here in my living room and avoiding looking around at what awaits me once this blog post is finished.  The weeks leading up to Christmas were filled with homesteading, crafting, a sinus infection and 2 bad colds.  Needless to say,our little farmhouse has become a bit of a mess.20121223-134753.jpg

While I am not feeling paralyzed by it all, I am a bit overwhelmed at where to start and how to get ‘er done so that I can enjoy a couple of days of vacation.  Somewhere in the back of my mind, however, I know that it will never actually be “done;” being a homeowner and homesteader, I will always have projects on the horizon.

With New Year’s Day around the corner, I’ve been thinking about my own personal and spiritual “projects” that await for me.  I will admit that some days, I’m overwhelmed by all that I want to accomplish with who I am.  It would be easy to settle for where I am on the journey now–it’s really not so bad, and I’m quite content here.  Yet I know that there’s always room for improvement and change and growth.  With those come many gifts that I will cherish as I move forward down the path.

As I stop writing and look around my farm, both inside and out, I am reminded that I’m not afraid of a little hard work and the sweat and tears that come with it.  And so, I will get off this couch and start cleaning, all the while meditating on where my journey will take me in the year ahead if I am open to the work that I’ll need to do to get ‘er done.

  1. Love this!! The photo of your workspace is fun and your articulation of hard work. The beautiful thing is that the very hard work you are doing is the meditation as well.

    This post was much appreciated.

  2. Hi Cameron,

    Sorry to hear you’ve been under the weather, and I hope you’re on the mend. The holiday season, along with the cold weather, is always a bit stressful for me, too.

    One bite, one project, one step at a time, all in good time.

    Belated Merry Christmas, and a heart-felt Happy New Year!

    All the best,
    Rob
