I saw a meme the other day and shared on my personal facebook page that said…
“Just remember 5 years ago, you dreamed about where you are now”
How true that is..
Today has been a YEAR since I marked one of my dreams off the list..
Purchasing my first farm..
5 years ago, I was just beginning my journey to start looking for a farm. Offers made, tears shed, let downs and I was almost about to take a break…but looking back now it all happened for a reason…
THIS is the reason…
This is for you reading, words from this is if you are going through a trial in life with obstacles that seem as if nothing is going right and no gate is open..
Remember the gate is always open…but some lead to the wrong pasture.. there is a gate meant for you..
Also remember the pasture may be green on the other side but it could also be full of weeds (negativity) or in this case obstacles..Some gates are rusty, some are shiny, some gates are bent and some are missing pieces!
But remember a bent gate, can still hold the cattle in.. a bent gate has character..a bent gate also has a story to tell.. Remember your gate opening doesn’t have to be perfect, your gate opening can use some work..
Find the gate that leads you to happiness, find the gate that leads to opportunities, find a gate that’s got a story, find a gate that needs some WD-40, it’s okay to not have a perfect gate…
Your story once you open that gate builds to the “perfectness” your perfections don’t have to match anyone else.. and no one is perfect even if there gate isn’t dented it could be scratched..
You do you and chase your dreams and remember believe in yourself.. you are your biggest fan and your biggest critic..
Find your gate, close gates that aren’t leading you anywhere.. some gates are hard to close but sometimes they need closed…don’t forget to latch the chain…
Find your pasture and build the fences how you want them built…..fulfill your dream..one step, one post at a time…
