2023's "State of Mind"


Well . . . as we know . . . 2022 may "NOT" have turned out as we had expected or hoped for.


And with all the upset and turmoil of the "pandemic", monkey pox, more virus scares, media frenzy, political differences, war abroad, natural disasters, inflation . . . the list go on and on . . . I'm sure you will agree . . . it left our head "SPINNING".


I've been right there with you people . . . with gas prices sorrowing, groceries so expensive we can't even afford a poor man's meal of PB&J.


And now . . . heating and electricity . . . through the roof . . .


The question still remains . . . Has this country gone "MAD"???


Well . . . I agree with you 100% . . .


It hasn't been easy here on the farm either . . . or for that matter . . . "any farm"


Not only do "farms" have to worry about how they're going to feed the "people" that run that farm . . . "feeding" the "animals" is also a big concern . . . because feed prices have skyrocketed along with everything else.


And as we know . . . if "farms" can't produce . . . then there's nothing to put on the shelves at the grocery store.


This is a "vicious circle" we find ourselves in today's world people!!!!


Look at eggs prices . . . are they serious????????


I sell egg . . . I know what it takes to raise those chicken . . . and I "get" that last spring the bird flu did mess up a lot of chicken farmers due to so many birds having to be killed . . .


BUT . . . 7 dollars for a dozen eggs almost a year later????? Come on people . . . wake up to what really happening here.


"I know" our biggest hurdle here was with our "farm equipment" and my truck to run the farm . . .


Everything's run on diesel here . . . and yes . . . I was complaining also when "diesel" was $6.25 per gallon. Do the math people . . . that was a BIG OUCHY!!! I was paying between 250 and 300 dollar a WEEK for diesel!!!!


BUT . . . when you look at the big picture . . . and history in the past . . . what makes or breaks this country . . . is our "STATE OF MIND"


We must remember . . . in any situation . . . "turmoil" and "hardship" included . . .


We must "PULL POSITIVE" to survive in today's crazy world.


And that's done by . . . our "STATE OF MIND"!!!


So what exactly does that mean???


Well . . . "state of mind" . . . is about a person's "mood" and the "effect" that "mood" has on the person's "thinking" and "behavior".
