I am so Thankful we Love living The Simple side of life. Life is more laid back, less stress, you have time to do what you really want to do from day to day. Enjoy each moment to the fullest!I know this lifestyle is not for everyone but for us it's the best life! "The Good Life"
Through out the years ,we have friends who call and come out to destress and relax,and Love it here. We also have friends who tells us your lifestyle is not for me. I couldn't handle the quiteness of where you live.We only live a mile off the main Hwy. and 1/2 mile from the city limits but so private some people on our St. doesn't even know we're here. We've even had a few tell us "If I ever won the Lottery, I'd move ya'll to the city" lol Often we wondered why can't they see the Love we share for each other , and the Joy a Simple life brings us. We also know our choice to live The Simple Life is NOT for everyone.
Now that the economy has made a turn for the worse , some of these same friends has come to us for advice on how to start living a more simple life. I would never try to force our Lifestyle on anyone. You have to have a Love and desire to live simple, what works for one doesn't work for everyone. To us it gives us freedom to do what we want, it's less stressful, you don't have to keep up with anyone ,just live life as you really want it. I know what goes into all our food ,I make my cleaning products and know I'm not using harmful supplies and know whats in each one. Etc. We recycle, reuse. Its been a way of life even before we knew about recycling and reusing.
We are human and have our share of troubles and trials ,but we wouldn't trade our way of life .We Love living here where gens. before me lived off this land. And a new gen. coming up learning our way of life.
Do you live the Simple life? What do you enjoy about it?
I hope ya'll have a great day!
