SOME DREAMS HAVE TO BE CRUSHED
Updated: Feb 26, 2021
Every time I go outside I have to stop and stare out at this view. I’ve been doing this since we bought the farm 3 years ago. I would just look out and imagine what it would look like if the barn was alive again, and if that 30-acre field of cash crop was actually a pasture full of horses. I had even started cleaning up the barn in preparation.
Well, life happened and getting horses just wasn’t meant to be. I was really disappointed, and looking at that lifeless barn every day only made me more sad. I was so discouraged that I was ready to have the barn torn down altogether.
Once our Little Farmers were born, something inside of me sparked. It wasn’t about me anymore. My passions were relit and we changed headings towards a different dream.
Fast forward to today - commitments have been made, deposits paid, fences built... we have gone ALL IN and are working our asses off to turn this sleepy little farm into a full-blown highland cattle family ranch.
I was devastated when I had to give up on my plan for horses, but now when I look out beyond the barn, I am filled with so much hope + excitement for my family’s future and for the life we are creating for ourselves.
At the end of the day, I think some dreams have to be crushed in order to lay the foundation for the one that was truly meant to happen.
