Episode Info: Ever been paralyzed with fear about a situation you’re facing? Ever been stuck in a loop of complaining about what’s happening in life? Let’s talk about an important question we can all ask ourselves that helps us live a solution based life. Listen to the podcast by pressing the play button on the black bar above. All episodes are linked under the podcast tab that you can find way at the top of this post in my menu bar.  You can also listen and subscribe to my Farmish Kind of Life podcast at iTunes, Stitcher, Google Play, PlayerFM, and other popular podcast players.  Solution-based life: Stop complaining. There’s something that happens when enough people get together in conversation: they eventually find something they can agree to be angry about and then they complain. I don’t have to give you examples of this because I guarantee you can see it going on around you, even if you’re not a part of it yourself. But you probably are a part of it—at least occasionally—because it’s so easy to get sucked in. Conversations focused on what’s wrong and what apocalypse is coming next get us all fired up. In a strange way, they even make us feel good—righteous and validated. But they generally don’t do anything to change the situation. Information overload  In today’s world, we have access to information 24-7, sometimes only seconds after something has happened.

Believe me, the smaller things are where we need to start. Start small. Look around. What can you do? A lot of people have talked about what’s coming down the pipe. The phrase “coming economic depression” is even being thrown about. Sometimes the problem can feel overwhelming, as in holy moly, I think there might be an economic depression coming and I don’t know how to deal with that. You need to break it down. What can I do right now? What can I do right here? If you are standing in your kitchen, your yard, your barn, garden, or shed, look around. What can you do right here to make life better today, tomorrow, or a year from now? You have options. Be creative. Dig in. If you are second guessing your financial stability, start small. Trying to attack your mortgage payment might be too overwhelming for your mind right now. Start small. For instance, go through all those extras that are coming out of your bank/PayPal every month—you might be surprised at what you find—and cancel them. Yes, the box subscriptions,...
