Hitting The Big, Green WallWondering why you haven’t heard from us lately? Well, I’m going to be forthright about it in the hopes that our story might inspire others in the same situation. We hit a bit of a “goodness plateau”. Seriously, for the past couple of months, we’ve simply been tired of working so hard to make ourselves better and better. Don’t get me wrong, we’re not finished. But we are resting a while. After all, every change needs a chance to rest. To settle. To marinade.

As you may know, we started making a conscious effort to changes our lives for the better about 18 months ago. It has been exceedingly fulfilling to improve ourselves and know that we are part of making the world a better place for our children. We’re still not even close to where we want to be, and the challenges keep getting bigger in both scope and scale. We’re now trying to get off the grid and harvest some of our own food. Carl is toying with converting a car to electric. We’re writing our kids a children’s book. There are many, many more good things to come.

But for right now, we’re having a little rest. In a way, I suppose we’re storing up for the winter. For the next round. And that’s alright. So, if any of you are “hitting the big, green wall”, don’t worry. Step back. Take a deep breath and rest a bit.

(BTW, I’d love to hear your stories and suggestions. Have you ever taken a rest? Where do you find inspiration to go on?)
