Being caught in the rat race is exhausting and depressing. Working hard every day and not being where you want to be or doing what you wish you could be doing, makes you feel like you need a magic genie to help you escape your real life. I felt that way when I was in my thirties. I had this heavy feeling that I wasn't doing what I really wanted. You know, being True to myself to my very core. The funny thing was I was in a good position. I had a new house, My kids were healthy, I had a little home business, I have a good hard working husband....BUT......I wasn't feeling it.
Now, when I think back to my childhood my father used to say I was going to marry a farmer. He saw it but, was off just a little. He should of said YOUR going to be a farmer. That's the real me down to my very core.
I don't mean the big industrial farmers we see and (don't really like) today, but the good old fashion kind. You know the homesteaders that founded this country. The humble, hard working, lots of skills, self sufficient kind of farmer. There are not too many of those left, but that is me.
It took me about six years to get into position to my new life, then I started my new life by building my own log cabin. I never felt happier living in a tent cooking on the campfire and working HARD every day. Way harder than in my old life but I was feeling it now. Happy, Happy, Happy! I am in my forties now and am sooo glad I am really being me.
It's never too late to start over and escape to your new life. Your real life.
