Who am I if not myself?
So, you’ve decided that you would like to live a more sustainable life. Filled with natural homes, gardens and fresh water among other things. This transition is one that needs to be carefully thought and felt out. There are questions such as ‘where am I going to live?’ or ‘what kind of dwelling do I want to have?’, ‘what am I going to do for an income?’ among other variables i’m sure you have racing around in your head. There are a few things to take into consideration before any of that happens.
You need to ask yourself “What do I want for myself in this life?”. It could be things like health, spiritual prosperity, a broad vocabulary, financial independence, it could really be anything! Try and spend some time in a place that you feel most yourself in. Somewhere really comfortable and go over what is really important to you. What do you want people to say about you in a eulogy once you pass? What are you going to leave as your legacy?
Take your time! This is definitely a part of the process that doesn’t need to be rushed. Remember to give yourself room to shift and evolve into who you may become. What you believe in and hold dear to yourself now may change in time as may you, with experience.
And don’t forget, have fun with it! The end goal is a product of the process towards it. If the journey is enjoyable, the destination will hold a bounty of fruit.
