Thanks to all of you that stopped by my vendor’s tent at the Farmers’ Market last Saturday. You will find us at the Brick parking, every Saturday, 7am to noon….rain or shine. It was so amazing to see everyone that came out to check out what was being offered locally. This is something that I cherish, I love seeing all of you on a weekly basis, to hear the stories and share all that I can on healthy living is truly my passion. It is a dream and privilege for me to share my homemade goods with all of you. Thanks to all of you for making me realize that this is a true need in our community.
We planted our vegetable garden last week-end as well, the weather is fluctuating so much this year, it doesn’t seem like it can make up its mind. We are hoping that it will not affect the growth of our delicious vegetables for our summer enjoyment. It is our true passion and we cross our fingers that it will bring us abundant produce as it always does.
Once in a while, we need to stop and look at all that we have accomplished in our lives and wonder how we got to where we are today. I sometimes find myself remembering how I lived before I started my health journey. I was not living in a healthy body or thinking with a healthy mind. I was living with the pain of daily ailments and the feeling of unhappiness and just not feeling right in my body. I did not feel that I deserved to be happy, slim and healthy. This is a journey that has made me look at myself from the inside/out, only I could make the decision to deal with what I needed to eliminate from my life to move on in a positive manner. I cannot say that it has always been easy, there have been challenges and hurdles along the way but this is a huge part of the growing that I needed to do to maintain my weight loss and I am thankful for it today..
I am very fortunate to have many great friends and an amazing family that is always there to support me in all that I do. Without them I would not be where I am today, living out my dream and enjoying my passion. I am very blessed to have a wonderful, supportive and caring husband and son that are always there to cheer me along the way. I don’t feel alone in this journey, on the contrary I feel loved and understood.
My wish for all of you is to never give up on your dreams and your passions. Go for it, you only have one life to live! At the end of the day, you want to be able to say that you at least tried and if it works out for you then it was meant to be, if it doesn’t at least you made the effort to make it come true. We are only here for a little while, on borrowed time really and if we don’t live out our dreams and passions, someone else will ….right??
