How to Be Happy

I believe that happiness is a choice. You can figure out how to be happy no matter what the circumstances because it's something that comes from inside you.

Inspirational books like the Bible, A New Earth, and The Power of Intention have really helped me.

It may be easy to say that I'm happy now because I am living my ideal life, but it actually happened the other way around. I went through some tough experiences that taught me the right mindset and eventually the pieces of my life fell into place.

Not that I speak from want, for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am.
~ Philippians 4:11 (NASB)

Some sort of spiritual practice will help you see the bigger picture. A happy life also includes:

  • A wholesome diet
  • Exercise
  • A feeling of connection to your foods and community
  • The satisfaction of meaningful work and enjoying the fruits of your labor

You can satisfy all of these factors by becoming an urban homesteader! You don't have to be all the way out there like I am, but just changing your mindset and growing something will be enough to get you started.

More about Me and My Happiness

happy because they eat butter Me at the 2010 WAPF Conference

I love butter, yes I do! I'm a passionate supporter of the Weston A. Price Foundation and local farmers. I love real foods.

I used to work at a public library, but now I'm a radical homemaker. I also run an internet business with a website about urban homesteading, homeschooling, and traditional crafts.

See the ALC Unlimited page for a more detailed history of my business.

I got married in the summer of 2011 and moved to our urban homestead. After a struggle with Lyme disease, we welcomed our first child in 2012 through a homebirth.

I am extremely happy to be with my loving husband, and I'm glad that I can share our unique interests with you on this website!

If you have anything to share about your urban homestead, I'd love to hear from you.
