Good Stewardship of Our Time / Is Your Attention Being Diverted From The Homestead?

how’s it growing youtube i’m patrick helmick and today i’d like to talk to you about stewardship and some entrepreneurship challenges that i’ve had um the last few weeks stewardship and what we’re doing to get better at it so let’s chat really quick so we’re emotional beings right we have our ups we have our downs um and we have the things the gifts that we’ve been given to take care of that is things like our our health that is things like uh in my case my beautiful better half my wife and my daughter um i’ve been entrusted with my house i’ve been entrusted uh with a teaching position all of these things and a half acre uh worth of uh garden chickens the latter right so i’ve been entrusted with these things to be a good steward of them and that means probably that i need to be good a good steward of my time and that’s what i want to talk a little bit about today i have been down really down the last few weeks because of the mania that is uh being transcribed in the mainstream media and it’s disheartening right i’m a soldier uh the delaware army national guard so it is uh my job right i want to make my community better in the best uh way that i can and media i have seen us is trying to pull us apart and separate us and it’s awful uh and i’ve been getting really down about it and as an entrepreneur right as a teacher me getting pushed down or suppressed emotionally is draining it’s draining on my beautiful daughter it’s draining on my wife it’s draining on my land it’s draining on my business and it’s separating me from my god which is which is kind of interesting so i want to talk to you about like those are challenges that i’ve been having and i don’t know if you’ve been having similar challenges and if you have please let me know so what are we doing about it to get better right because we have to be good stewards at the end of the day the things that are happening in the brown house the greenhouse the white house whatever right we don’t have that much control over that on the day-to-day but what is it that we do have control over our family being kind to them being kind to a neighbor a co-worker doing a good job at work like 100 percent have we been given a hundred percent to our work when we come home what do we do are we being good stewards to our land are we being good stewards are we being good steward to netflix what is it so that’s where we’re making a change so number one we’re disconnecting from what is happening in the news uh we are focused primarily on getting our house in order for our new baby our gardens um as you can see behind me this is part of our flower garden [Music] these are all zinnias behind me um so being a good steward to that being a good steward to be kind to other people and then grow in these gardens that should be where my attention is because that is where i can make positive impact here at helmik’s homestead we’re focused on making the planet better right through regenerative farming uh practices to the best of our ability if you want to see so we have added uh about a half an inch of soil to these garden beds and it came from uh the chicken bedding so we took leaves and i don’t know and the chickens shred them for us and they fertilize these leaves and they turn it into this amazing amazing compost we throw all of our food scraps into the chickens they get that as extra nutrition the garden feeds the chickens the chickens then feed the garden that’s stewardship that’s the stuff that we should be focused on because i want you to know it’s a fallacy to believe that us what we do on the daily if we make the world every single one of us make the world a better place every single day we don’t need major institutions to come in to make the world a better place because we already did it we left them behind we don’t have to wait for them i don’t need for permission to compost and add nutrition to my garden that’s good stewardship and i challenge you to contemplate some of these things i’m talking about regenerative farming would be cool contemplate like should i be as plugged in as i am what am i being a good steward to and can i be better because we can all get better right we can all improve and as we’ve been doing that and i’ve been getting on a regular pt schedule my stress level has been reduced my thought process has been increased and i feel so much better and i hope that you join me i wanted to talk really briefly about stewardship and how we can be better because that’s what it is it’s a journey right we have to get better each and every single day and i believe that because you watching this i bet you’re a good person an honest person a person who you know is striving to make their community a better place so let’s do it let’s unplug from all of the nonsense and let’s think about all the blessings that we have let’s get after it i’m patrick helmick and this is helmik homestead high five
