What If Money Didn’t Matter

I met a friend yesterday for some coffee and we got to talking about our passions and work. She made a statement that I couldn’t get out of my mind. She said that even if they offered me $$$$$ amount of dollars I wouldn’t take the job because it doesn’t fit in with my life’s plan. She was serious too. She said it wouldn’t necessarily be easy but she would turn it down. That’s  how passionate she is about working for herself and living the life she wants.

Our conversation challenged me to dig deeper to find the courage I need to walk away from the things that I allow to hold me back.

Etsy Fort Worth Sets up Fund for Hood County Tornado Victims

This year’s theme for the annual Etsy craft party is “Crafting for Community!” So our local team, Etsy Fort Worth, has decided to do something for our neighbors to the south in Hood County, who are recuperating from devastating tornado damage, and the lives that were lost.

 Those affected in Hood County don’t qualify for monetary help from our government, so we’d like to do our part to help their community rebuild and heal. Join us on June 20th to fold 1,000 origami cranes to raise $1,000 to donate to United Way of Hood County. You can visit Etsy Fort Worth  for more information, including how to donate if you’re unable to come to the craft party. Please pass this along!

 

 


Out to pasture

 The bluebonnet ride was a lot of fun but it was also emotional a few times. One of the spots we stopped to take some pictures had a pasture of cows, including a calf that was nursing. The cows had plenty of room to roam, a variety of grasses to eat, and from what I could tell they seemed content.

Before I knew what was going on my emotions got the better of me. I found myself teary eyed and my mind racing with the thought this is how it should be. Even if these animals are being raised for food they are being treated humanly.

It is not the goal of this blog to push anyone into a certain lifestyle but I would like to think that we can all agree that living creatures should be treated with respect and care regardless of rather they are a pet, wild or being raised for food.
