Yep, I have been told I am crazy and unrealistic. Why? Because my immediate plans include becoming prepared for anything. Because I am going to go back to school for a degree not many have heard of, apparently. The degree is Horticultural Therapy. Because if I have to work outside the home I want a job that has flexible scheduling and pays well. Because I intend to run a crowd source campaign to raise money for some improvements and supplies to start a creative cottage business. I am crazy because I want to live sustainably and be self-reliant. And writing, getting published and all that doesn’t happen to too many people so don’t count on that panning out. The only thing this person is thankful for is that I stopped the whole crazy idea of homeschooling. Hate to tell said person but if the kids really wanted to go back to homeschooling I would do it in a heart beat.
Now with all that being said rest assured that I fully intend to continue with my plans, if nothing else this has made me more determined. I think I am being realistic in believing in myself and wanting to live out my dreams. Life is way too short to stay on the side lines. I intend to arrive at the finish line margarita in hand shouting, damn what a ride!
How do you deal with naysayers and/or those who think you have lost your mind? I mean why go to all the trouble of growing your own food when you can go to the grocery store?
Light, Love and Peace!
