Wanting To Live A Simple Life

Now at days it seems like we are all struggling in the race to get everything newer and better.  I am struggling against that way of life as I want to go back to a much simpler time and life. Don't get me wrong, I love my laptop and its my source of income. I use it to work, to write and do research. But on the days I am not using it, I would rather have the time to be in the kitchen creating, crafting or outdoors enjoying nature.  When I was younger, I wanted the big house with all the rooms and fancy things.  Now I want a cabin or small home with a basic kitchen, pantry, bathroom and bedroom.  The need and want for all the extras are gone. What I would like is a house on land away from everything to have my garden and some animals. I want to work to live and enjoy life instead of working to survive.  My dream has always been to write as a career. I know that is a hard dream to obtain, but its still my dream.

I am currently working on making the home more obtainable.  I have started to pay off all my old debt and doing side hustles to pay off those bills even faster.  I am living more frugal than I ever have before.  I use the objects in my home until they fall apart. I am cooking more from scratch and eating out less. I have also continued to craft for gifts and trading.  

With the hustle of today's world wanting a simpler life is a better move.  I will take the snide comments and living within my means so I can eventually retire to the life I want. The goal for my property and home are there and I am excited for that future.

Take care and blessings to you all!
