Even though the calendar says it’s a new year I find that today feels no different than last week, or even 3 months ago. The only problem I will face with the change of the new year is writing the one and the six on my checks.
Even though today does not feel any different than 3 months ago, I know life, and myself have changed a lot during this time. What I considered important 3 months ago is not necessarily what I consider important now. What I see about life now is a lot different than what I could see 3 months ago.
As much as I enjoy writing about how to plant according to the pattern set by nature, I am beginning to see a new problem many people face and would like to focus on that as well. A close family member was recently diagnosed with stage 4 cancer, when I sit and think about how I would feel if I was in this position, I begin to realize that I do not enjoy life the way I should. Life is dark and unknown, it holds anger, hostility, and confusion instead of hope, love, and happiness.
With that being said, I am going to focus not only on planting gardens in a more natural way, but learning to enjoy life no matter what happens. There is so much beauty in this world that many miss because their focus is on situations they perceive as bad.
With this new year let’s remember the beauty of life and all it has to offer.
