The holidays are such a special and magical time of year, especially around children, and certainly in this house. The common sentiment of “believe” is thrown around in reference to faith, Santa, or just in one's ability to make it to the other side of a family holiday. It’s a word we associate with Christmas.
Believe is also a word that I use frequently and with conviction, not just reserving it for this one time of the year. It’s a lifestyle for me and an important one to have on the farm and as a business owner. I believe that what we are doing matters. I believe that tomorrow will come and so will next spring. I believe in the importance to connect with nature and appreciate fleeting beauty in its rawest form. I believe in the importance of letting the world see life through my lens. I believe that I am making an imprint that will affect others and I believe we all are in our own way.
What about you? Besides the holiday magic, what do you believe in right now? What elements in life are your founding principles that you believe in? Are you living them?
