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.
I also like to listen to guided meditations. One of my favorites is the free sample from Circle and Bloom. (I'm not an affiliate.) Meditating helps relieve stress and restore energy.
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.
Some sort of spiritual practice will help you see the bigger picture.
A happy life also includes:
You can satisfy all of these factors by becoming an urban homesteader!
"I love butter, yes I do!" (There's a fun song with that as the chorus, I forget who wrote it.)
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 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.
