“Original Homesteading” might make you think of the past, but it is really about creating your own unique lifestyle today! Learn more about how to you can begin homesteading no matter where you live…..
I like to think of the word ~Original~ as an adjective to the noun Homestead….hence the definition of original: created
directly and personally by a particular artist; not a copy or imitation: “original Rembrandts”.
Synonyms to the word original are: authentic, genuine and actual…….
So, go ahead and Create Your Own Homestead wherever you are:
First of all, not everyone has the time or desire to be completely self-sufficient, but with creativity everyone can add a sense of original homesteading to their lives!!
It is way satisfying to provide for ourselves. Some may make and bake everything from scratch; some may gather the things they need from various sources; either the garden, greenhouse, hen-house, farmer’s markets, local grocery or online sources . The idea is to be thoughtful in all you do.
By thinking about your own Original Homestead; rural or city, country or suburbs, you can develop your own style of simpler, satisfying living. This can mean so many different things to different people. From window gardening, baking bread, to growing potted flowers, to raising baby chicks, to having a dairy goat; the list is endless.
So what can you do……
Be creative!!! Be thoughtful in your daily life!!! Help and assist others to be the best they can be!!!
…..Celebrate the small things…..
We reap what we sow!!!
The balancing act is to live and create meaning in the middle of this busy, hectic and complicated world…….simple lifestyle changes can be made as you learn more on how to create your own homestead!
