As much as I love this quote, I wanted to add that finding your passion is an ongoing process. This year is going to be a balance of passions. The biggest one being the little one we welcomed into our life this month (more on that this week) and figuring out how to continue doing what we love. With a newborn in tow his needs win out above our own daily and overtime there will be some shift as he becomes more independent, but in that process it can be easy to lose sight of who you are. Being a mother to a newborn it can be hard to feel like much more than a soother at nap time, a food machine, a swaddler, a pacifier holder, a constant googler about weird things, and the list goes on. My brain soon enough will stretch past this time again, and there I will have the chance again to start to rediscover myself in this new role with a new balance of it all.

That said, no matter where you are at in the process of discovering your passion remember that it is a journey and a process. Right when you have it all aligned just right there will always be something new. Those moments are really perfect opportunities to reassess that passion in a new way with a new lens. Don’t take them as moments that throw you off course, but instead as a time to ask the hard questions about what really matters and what was only standing in your way.

Hello! I’m Megan Gilger,

A strong believer that nature and the seasons are our greatest teachers. We live on a hill in Leelanau County, Michigan just a stone’s throw from Lake Michigan. This land we are responsible for is where we are focused on building a life around the seasons and intention. We spend our days here building a regenerative model of living and focusing our garden on native plants and intensive polyculture planting styles. My focus is less on self-sufficiency and more on community-sufficiency through how we grow and connect through the seasons.
