Today marks two months since exchanging my bustling city life in Washington DC for a much slower paced lifestyle in rural Western Massachusetts.
I spent the last eight years working very long hours with few– sometimes no– days off each week. While lucrative, it was not fulfilling work. As I approached a decade of this lifestyle, I realized that the perpetual exhaustion and empty feeling in my soul was no way to live. So, I quit my job, packed up my cat and possessions, and made the move back north.
I feel so blessed to be able to spend this time in my life with my best friend, my biggest supporter and motivator… my mother on her farm up in MA. I’m looking forward to sharing our adventures along the way 🙂
“Very little is needed to make a happy life;
it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking.” – Marcus Aurelius
“A happy life must be to a great extent a quiet life,
for it is only in an atmosphere of quiet that true joy dare live.” -Bertrand Russell
