The Truth About Being A First Time Farmer - The Urban Ecolife

“I’ve got this.”

 

I can’t even count the number of times I’ve had to repeat this silent chant to myself as I sit in the loneliness of my thoughts. When a blanket of silence has fallen around me, it’s sometimes hard to remember I have a choice to either sit in the peace of the silence, or be disturbed by the relentless mind-chatter.

So I Am Going To Become A Farmer...It’s 2:14am. I’m awake at this ungodly hour because jetlag has taken me prisoner. A whole 15 hours ago I arrived back on home soil having spent the majority of the past 2 years travelling, volunteering, wwoofing, house-sitting, visiting friends around the world and being a typical backpacking millennial trying to unpack her life and all the drama that comes with making adult life decisions.

Mastering The Soft Skills Of Sustainability - The Urban Ecolife

I have something important to share with you.

It’s been weighing on my heart for some time.

When-I-Stopped-Consuming-and-Started-Creating...-My-Life-Changed

When was the last time you read a book (or blog post – hey look, you’re doing that now!)?

 

What about watching a live sports game or Youtube video? Or maybe you visited an art gallery or watched a live band?

Maybe it was a simple as seeing someone’s flourishing garden and desiring to grow your own food one day.

 

Through this process, did you stop to admire someone else’s talent, workmanship or skill?
