You’re struggling to find balance in your life. It’s about to drive you crazy.
“About” doesn’t even cut it, right? You’re already there.
You’re pulling your hair out because you set goals you say you can’t achieve. And maybe you’re stressed about money, time and just know knowing what to do, so your health suffers. You just want to fit it all in.
Do you need the encouragement and motivation to keep going and not give up when the going gets tough?
Finding a balanced life ain’t easy. I mean, there is work, activities, family, and hobbies all rolled into one hectic daily schedule. Plus, I know you want to be healthy but maybe you don’t know how or have time or money.
So, it sounds like you need someone to help you discover the rural living tips you need to fit everything together and move toward a happy and fulfilled balanced life.
Hey, I’ve got you covered!
Hey there! My name is Mindy Young.
And I hear what you’re saying. I know because I’ve been there. My passion is helping rural people, like you, discover a balanced rural life one step at a time.
My ultimate goal is to help and inspire people to create the life they dream of by learning to “fit” in:
- Managing a farmstead, homestead with livestock, crops, bees and more.
- Daily wellness routine you need to feel your best.
- Business or Income to help sustain the life you want to create for yourself.
- Fun and family rural lifestyle tips.
And I understand that fitting all those things in can be a real struggle. I STILL struggle with balance from time to time. But it’s all about learning to manage these three things:
Finally, the goal is to reach a balanced and FULL life. What is a balanced life? Leading a balanced life means to create the life you want to live and start living the way you want to. Now, how does that sound?
I speak from experience & knowledge.
Because my own adult life began as a jumbled mess of long work hours and unreachable dreams. True story.
First of all, I gained experience working 50-60 hours per week teaching about agriculture, business and rural community development. While at home, my husband and I were working on building our own family farm from the ground up. The rest of our free time was spent raising our daughter Mylee, finding time to be healthy, and volunteering in our community and industry.
For nearly 6.5 years, I struggled to balance long work hours and commute, a growing farmstead, running a household and family, and staying healthy. In my search for happiness and satisfaction in life, I learned a lot about give and take. How to fit in the most important things that really matter and throw out the rest.
And my ultimate goal was to be able to “work from home” while raising my kids at home. I longed and dreamed to be able to create that life for myself. I just wanted to be happy.
Guess What…I Did It!
But it was hard. And many people told me working from home couldn’t be sustainable with little ones. That I would burn out after so many early mornings and long nights after long days.
And they were not wrong. I did struggle and there were many many times I wanted to quit. There were so many ups and downs and “ah-ha” moments during that time in my life. I learned how important mental health and positivity is to reaching my ultimate goal. And that is the BIG reason why I feel like I’m in the road to creating my content life.
So, I know there are many others out there who feel the way I do. They’ve been told there’s no way. Maybe that person is you. I want to tell you right now that there is a way. Please know that you can find a way to create THAT life for yourself where you grow and enjoy your own food, feel healthy, create an income for yourself and enjoy the life that comes with it.
You can fit all of that into ONE amazing life.
I want share my own experiences, triumphs, and mistakes with you: A person who is longing to find a healthy and fulfilled balanced life. I want to encourage you to find yours. Because if I can find balance, what’s stopping you?
But, I also want to leave you educated about what really happens out here in the country. I refuse glamorize country life. And I intend to share my failures and triumphs with you because both are important milestones for growing, learning and finding desired balance in your life.
Your Guide to a Balanced Life
I created Farm Fit Living as your guide to finding and living a balanced rural life. It’s more than just a rural living blog. Each word has it’s own special part of the brand:
- Farm: Knowledge about farm, garden and beekeeping practices you yearn to learn.
- Fit: Fitting in schedules, budget and knowledge needed to create balance for you.
- Living: Creating the kind of life you will be satisfied with.
I share my story with you because I am passionate about helping you reach that point of clarity and satisfaction. You know: That feeling and sense that we are all striving to find. The perfect life we want to live where we can enjoy each day God gives us.
Hence, from me, you will see lessons in hard work but plenty of play time out in the country and inside the gym. You’ll also see lessons learned, emotional stress, hard times, great experiences, triumphs and mistakes along the way. I share the goods, bads, happiness and sadness of rural and farm life.
But the most important lesson I hope to teach you is to never stop learning. As a lifelong learner myself, I will attempt to educate you with skills, new adventures, and fun tips I experience each day in my rural life.
For me to get to know you better, please answer the following question:
I will help you learn more about balance in these categories.
Even though you live and work your farm or homestead, you may still need an income. Have you considered starting a business from your land?
