Life on Windmill Farms

I can't believe it is June already. As I sit in Philadelphia thinking about my travels, I focus on how I started this month. It was really an example of how I live life with no balance and love it. Lefty's parents celebrated their 60th anniversary and we hosted it at our farm - "Windmill Farms" in Iowa with a fantastic pig roast. It was so fun to have my entire family there as well since they had never stayed with us on our farm. We had such great weather (which has been hard to have in the midwest this year), great food, over 70 people, music, dancing and a whole lot of fun!

I think that sometimes people who know me think of this fast paced woman who travels all over the world, jetting in and out of cities, dining in fine restaurants and shopping at great boutiques. Well if that is how you picture me, you have never seen me in my cowboy boots, hat, and jeans sitting on top of our tractor. This is the life I chose, therefore I accept it everyday with a full heart.

How about you? Are you living your "right" life? Are you enjoying everyday, even through the tough times? Are you living someone's life? Are you afraid to make a decision to do it your way, because you think someone will stop you?

It is June - halfway through 2008 and it is time to live it fully. I believe so much in the potential of people. We all have the ability to do anything we want, regardless of our situation. So think about the next 6 months. What do you want to change? What do you want to improve? Set a plan, and stick with it and say no to anything that takes you off course. There are so many people in your life that will let you off the "hook." Don't let yourself off the "hook." Go for it with everything you've got, and you will be amazed at the results.

OK...I've thought about the next six months and I want to change jobs.

Jim and Beth Schultenover referred me to you. You'll see my name in your inbox soon.

Enjoyed reading about your pig roast...hope Windmill Farm isn't in a flood zone or tornado path. I just spent a harrowing few days in Lawrence, KS, wishing for magic ruby red slippers.

Thank you to all who have written to me regarding our farm and the floods in Iowa. We are located between Cedar Rapids and Iowa City, Iowa but fortunate to be higher so the floods only effected our roads. We are so sorry for all of those in our area who have lost their homes and farms.
