Homesteading freedom

Rose Nell and Anna with sunflowers


I buy my freedom with my frugality.
                        --- Vicki Robin


The homesteading dream is all about freedom.  The homesteading life is all about figuring out what to do with that freedom.

Mark is a great one for reminding me to fill my life with what is truly important --- family, friends, good books, long baths, walking in the woods, and petting Huckleberry.  Your list may vary.

Follow your bliss.
                        --- Joseph Campbell

Great Reminder
I sometimes feel guilty for being so happy when everyone else seems harried and unhappy, but this is a good reminder that I do earn it by choosing not to live like them. Have fun with your bliss!

I'd forgotten the quote "follow you bliss". Also brings to mind Randy Pausch... Follow your childhood dreams. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ji5_MqicxSo It's a very inspirational video.
