My thoughts for the month...

“Time” is most certainly good, because it’s our time. It’s the only time we have for sure and we need to make the most of it. This isn’t a dress rehearsal so we need to show up on the stage of life ready to go into action as soon as the curtain goes up. What are we waiting for? When do we begin to live our dreams and when do we start to really live?  It’s about following your passion.

“If I had to choose my driving force, it would be passion.”
 - Anita Roddick         

Passion is the key ingredient to success. It’s the driving force that keeps us going when we hit a bump in the road to achieving all we have ever wanted. Without passion for what we’re doing, it is all too easy to give up when the going gets a little rough.

To create a successful life we must do what we LOVE to do and find a way to both serve others and create wealth with what we’re doing. To achieve all we want in life, not the least of which is happiness, we must be sure to meet the Seven Universal Requirements.

1. Discover your passion.
2. Make that passion your life.

3. Find a way to create a business pursuing your passion.

4. Find a way to serve others with what you do.

5. Come up with a plan of massive action.

6. Follow and work your plan.

7. Stick to it until you become the success you’ve dreamed of becoming...until you’ve become the greatness that is already inside you.  

When all is said and done we are the only one responsible for ourselves. Those who know and understand the laws of the Universe, know that if we aren’t able to give to others, to help others, we will never have what we seek for ourselves.                

The fact remains, however, that I cannot be passionate about something I don’t believe in at least 100%. So, the message here is, find the “time” to do something you love doing and are totally passionate about, as being lukewarm about something will not serve you in reaching your full potential.

Is it spring yet? The sun’s return to full strength in the northern hemisphere never can come soon enough for me.

“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” – Hippocrates

Welcome to Our March Issue

Everyone agrees that eating naturally grown, fresh, local food is good for our health and our environment, as well as the local economy. We’re glad to see such strong, continuing interest in local, organic and sustainable agriculture in our area.

Welcome to Our March Issue

Our March issue focuses on food, one of the pure joys of life. Basic to good health, good food and conscious eating start with each of us individually. We need to educate ourselves about food more than ever in this world of excessive convenience, misleading nutritional messages and food mega-companies that dominate the supply chain. The best action for our families’ health is to invest in food and nutritional education, and above all, know the source of our food. Buying from trusted sources and producers will keep us from eating questionable calories that are not in the best interest of our bodies and by extension, our souls.

Publisher Letter

It’s time to grab your garden seeds or starters and mix up some nourishing soil, pull out the garden tools, dust off your favorite big-brimmed hat and start thinking about planting. This year I hope to graduate from last season’s container gardening to planting some small raised beds and maybe even a few fruit trees with thoughts of future seasons.
