It Just Feels Right
Lately I have been meeting a lot of new people, people who seem to understand our life and why we choose to live the way we do. And that feels really great. It is so wonderful to find like minded people who get you.
Last week someone I am just getting to know asked me why we have chosen to live the life we are leading. I didn't want to assume anything so I asked exactly what she was referring to. It was a little bit of everything...the way we raise Reece, the homeschooling, the chickens, growing our own food, cooking from scratch, putting food up, the handmade things we are always making, life in the slow lane, the nature connection, and so on.
I could tell these questions were coming from a place of interest, and I did not feel the need to defend our choices as I often do when faced with this question. Usually I would start to explain our reasons for it all, my passion would take hold and there would be no stopping me. But something inside me didn't quite feel like going there on this day, I felt a subtle twinge telling me to keep it simple. So I did.
I answered, "It just feels right."
