Hey, Welcome to my Blog!
I have created this page with the hope to meet and exchange info and ideas with as many people as possible… As I am at that point in life where I strongly feel the need of a change, a Big Change, I thought it would be nice to be able to share this experience with others, and also to keep an online diary about the entire journey.
Both me and my husband feel that our Big Change is to move from the comfortable but sometimes meaningless city life, to a more authentic, simple and ‘old fashioned’ life in the country. I don’t hide that we have many doubts and many fears… but the Big Change does not happen if you don’t experience fear, right?!
So, here we are, planning to give up our flat in magical London, just before the Brexit, and move to the country… Risk takers?! I often think… but at the same time how can you break the city ‘rat race’ routine, without taking a risk? It is the only way…
Please, do not get me wrong, I love my life in London… I live in leafy north London, and I am a part time Art Technician in a college and Meditation Teacher, so I have a gentle and slow city life, and I really enjoy what I do… my husband life style is a bit more intense, but nonetheless he enjoys what he does… and guess what? This is exactly what makes it really difficult to decide to let go and take that step… it is really hard to leave all the comforts of the western society… the security of a wage, the myriad of possibilities that are available to you in a city like London, the 24h transports, the arts, the creativity, the energy of the city… but than in the evening as we look at each other after a long day apart and think about what our lives could be in the country, surrounded by green and silence, we get that itchy drive of excitement and we feel like to say ‘F**K IT’, let’s go, and let’s see what happens…
A calmer, simpler and more authentic life in Nature, this is what we need to nurture our souls… and of course it will be extremely hard, especially at the start, but with few good books, and few tips from the more experienced one, we should be able to manage. Lets have faith in the Gods! Gaia, please be with us! 🙂
This blog is for any of you out there that resonate with our situation, for those of you that just dream about country living, and for those of you that already live the dream and feel inspired to share plenty of experiences. I really hope we can create a useful community together, please share your thoughts and leave a comment.
Thank You, Cristiana 🙂
