A day is done, the sun sets on the Little Homestead in the City
When folks ask me about urban homesteading, I tell them is not only a way of life, it’s a 24-7 job. A you really have to be committed because there’s no turning back once you take the plunge. Even on bad days when you are dealing with failures, battling bugs, sick animals, wacky weather, incomplete projects you have to go forward. Why? Because the next day and the next you have to do it all over again. For the rest of your life if you so choose. Urban homesteading is not a “one and done” (one year wonder) it’s a journey of a lifetime. A journey that’s filled with both hills and valleys.
That’s what’s so practical and “uncomplicated” about (urban) homesteading. A pioneer spirit resides in each of us and every morning you answer “the call.” No matter if the world around you is falling apart – your world is where you are. Sure there are struggle and failures – but that’s what makes you a better more knowledge urban homesteader going through life “back to basics” school of hard knocks. So while headlines tell of doom and gloom, what keeps us going here on the ‘stead – bare dirt, hungry animals, bountiful harvest, new projects, people – life.
The benefits of urban homesteading are endless – not only are you creating and implementing positive change you are growing more independent and knowledgeable by hands on experiences.
So reader’s what keeps you going (besides coffee) 😉
I’ve been a bad blogger. Now that I’ve been honest and admitted to the fact ( got that burden off my shoulders) I can move past the denial. Truth is I’ve been so busy, I’ve not been good at responding to ya’lls comments. Not to mention there’s been several dozen requests for more! More info, more tips, more this, more that etc, etc. I know, I know…
More “happening” posts still to come.
