Key Ingredient to a Happy Marriage
The absolute most important part of a successful marriage is to create a life together that you both love! You will both need to talk about what it is that you want out of life. Do you love where you live or do you dream of living somewhere else? What ever life you want to live you will need to figure it out and tell your husband about it. Make a dream life together that you will both love!
What do you want out of life?
Do you know what makes you happy? Do you know what makes you unhappy? You may need to do some soul searching and figure out what brings you joy. You can love the life you are building with your husband but first you will need to know how to get there. After, you have wrote down you dream life, you can then write down a clear path on how to get there. This can be your road map on to a successful marriage and a happily ever after.
Our Dream Life
Today, I am going to share with you my dream life and how I use it as a road map for a happy marriage. Michael and I love the outdoors and spending time gardening. Michael enjoys building things and I am happy taking care of my kids. The only missing part of our love story is that Michael is working a 9-5 job away from his family everyday of the week and sometimes on Saturdays too!
Michael is away from home more often that he is home. So we have identified that as a problem and we are working so hard on changing that. We would rather work on a farm together and have less money that we currently are making than keep living the life we are currently living. I truly believe that one of the reasons husbands and wives break up is because they are away from each other more often than they are together. We spend so much time away from each other how can we truly connect to each other during the day? We can't.
The answer for us is to start a small homestead/ small farm. We plan on building a small organic farm far in the forests of Northern America. We haven't decided on which state yet but we are very attracted to all the beauty of Northern Idaho. All that matters to us is that we can be together as a family and we will do anything we can to make it happen.
How will we make money?
Like I said before we are super motivated and will do anything to make our dream life come true. We have books that we are in the process of self-publishing, we have our website, and we will sell extra produce and meat from our farm to friends, neighbors and possibly online. We also may or may not join a direct sales company like Young Living. I tried the direct sales thing with Mary Kay and I was really turned off by the company. So we have lots of ways we plan on making money. Also I am willing to shovel snow, trim neighbors trees, or babysit if we get desperate for money. In my mind "Success happens when failure is not an option". We can and will make this dream happen. It will happen.
What will our daily life look like?
We plan of doing chores of a small farm. We will also probably start our farm off-grid. So our daily life is going to be full of hard physical work. Some of our daily tasks will be:
- Hauling Water
- Building New Structures- Our Home, Barn, Workshop, Fences, Gardening Area, etc.
- Feeding Animals
- Attending to Other Needs of Animals
- Shoveling Animal Waste
- Planting Trees and Produce
- Tending The Gardens
- Maintaining Structures We Build
- Getting Animal Feed
- Attending Farmers Markets
- Meeting Neighbors and People In Our Community
- Working on Our Websites
- Creating Online Content
- Creating YouTube Videos (We will have two channels- Homeschooling His Children and a new homesteading channel)
- Posting on Social Media 1-2 Times Per Day
- Creating a New Podcast Every Tuesday and Thursday
These are a few of our daily homesteading and farming tasks we will be doing each day. But we are excited to live this lifestyle because we get to live it together. We are going to be closer to each other both physically and mentally than ever before and we are so excited!
Why are we sharing of lives with others?
We hope to inspire other families like ours to live the life of their dreams. Of dream life may be very different to yours but this is the life that will make us happy. What ever life will bring you joy we encourage you to work towards that life. Do everything you can to live the life of your dreams because we only have one life to live and I have learned that if you don't meet your needs no one else will. Only YOU can build the life of your dreams. It is completely up to you on the life you want to live. This world has hundreds of choices for you to make and this one is yours.
Family Dinner Recipes
While you are figuring out your dream life you can make these mouth watering meals for your sweet husband and kids.
Pot Roast- This is what I am making for dinner tonight. This pot roast looks so yummy!
100% Whole Wheat Dinner Rolls- Look at these soft wheat rolls. We usually do a paleo diet but I am making these tonight. I might start making fresh bread again. I missed it so much. A little homemade bread won't hurt anybody, right?
Come back next Tuesday and will chat again about stay at home life. I am not sure what topics will be covering next Tuesday but I would love to hang out with you a bit! See you then friend.
