Funny how things pop up in your life right as you make certain realizations in your mind. I’m noticing that a lot lately. Today I stumbled across a passage in a post by The Pioneer Woman whose husband (a cattle rancher) pretty much sums up all I’ve learned about self-employment over the past three years full-time:
… how does it feel to live in an ocean where the waves that carry you along are the markets, the weather, and other factors that are beyond your control?
That’s just part of it.
Part of what?
Part of agriculture. Part of life. It’s actually kind of liberating at a certain pointâ€”you do the best you can with what you can control, and you pray about what you can’t control. And you have faith that it’ll all work out in the end.
