    95: The truth about tribes, support systems, and friends

    95: The truth about tribes, support systems, and friends

    Today I am deep thinkin' about tribes, support systems, and groups of friends. Life is a process of growth and change, so let's talk about how to find your tribe, what the actual purpose is of that tribe, and what to keep in mind when you feel like it's time to step away from that tribe.

    93: Okay, Now What? (Keep Going)

    93: Okay, Now What? (Keep Going)

    When you hit a stage of life where things are ending or changing, we often ask ourselves (author included), okay, now what?



    And it's easy to fall in to the trap that says there isn't anything next because we're too old or that season has passed.



    Come on, you guys.



    We always have options. There is always a next phase of life and we can do just as much with it as we did with the last one.

    Your homework after listening to Episode 93:

    Make a list of who you answer to.



    Ask yourself what you really want to do.



    Ask yourself why you've stopped growing or digging. What's holding you back?

    92: Everyone’s normal is different

    92: Everyone’s normal is different

    I happened to mention in last week's episode that my kids don't have a bedtime, and I got a lot of questions about it. Our life here tends to go against the grain of mainstream "normal" in a lot of ways, and let me tell you—it can be tough to go against the grain sometimes!



    Today, we dig into some uncomfortable truths about the concept of "normal": what it actually means, how it serves us, how it trips us up, and how we're often unwilling to give other people the same acceptance for their "normal" that we demand for ours.

Let the haters hate… you’re rich in farm wealth

Farm wealth = food, common sense

The Full Farmhouse ,

Inspiring and down to earth!

My favorite podcast to listen to while I go about my day on our homestead. Listening to Amy feels like chatting with a friend - she is real, open, and honest about what life is like. Love her stories and her advice!
