Almost 2 months ago i chose to leave my nice city flat and hard-earned comforts, and came to live a more natural life in the countryside with crazy hippies (much like my birth mother did once upon a time)
Its turned out to be probably the most influential experience of my life (a bold statement!) mostly due to the very special people and energy here. Its hard to know what to say about the journey but I'll try ;) Its been challenging on a deep level but also beautiful and...alive. Ive become more resilient to the elements, connected with animals and nature and all that clichéd stuff. Ive ran dug lifted cut chopped sawed screwed hammered and carried and planted! Cut my hands to ribbons! Let go of most of my old life (and fears), got used to living away from my phone...spent time processing and remembering....ive eaten from the land, started learning how to live a more sustainable and pure life...got a lot better at cooking...Saved a whole bunch of money...learnt so much about myself...got ao much more meaningful social interaction.... Acquired and renovated a caravan (for less than £50 total).. made my art flow better....
and fulfilled my goal of starting to break away from the insane system.
Within 2 months ive found a network of like-minded beautiful people, built a customised new home with solar power and live mostly for free, created an art space, and working within a community and my own life in a way which is for truth and freedom and goodness! It can be that easy
I take things for granted so much less. Create more art and have purer interactions. Im exercising hours everyday in natural ways breathing cleaner air, drinking spring water and eating good country food! My lymph nodes have cleared, my energy levels are loads better, and find it easier to sleep natural hours. And Ive also got the tan of my life!! (all day outside and no sunblock, yet no burnt irish skin?! whats going on)
