I saw this video yesterday on a friend's facebook feed, and I just had to share it.
(If you like this trailer help kickstart this movie, they need funds to see this project through to completion.)
Seems like we're part of a movement. You see, there's a whole bunch of us who don't like the script we've been given for family life. Or the script for life in this society in general. Where we're supposed to live, how we're supposed to earn money or raise our kids.
We want to live a different story. And we're doing it. And we're not alone (though some days it feels like it).
From the video,
"I don't know what's around the corner for me. But I've never been so fulfilled not knowing."
I'll be sharing something on Monday (written in advance of watching this video) that totally echoes that thought. What life looks like for me right now, in terms of homemaking and homeschooling. It's funny how this video works as a good lead into that post.
And then in one month Damien and I will be unveiling and launching "the" big project we've been working on. A script we're re-writing. And this time, we actually going to do it.
But today I'm going to live in this moment. Enjoy the life we're living.
While I'm sharing inspiration, here's a few more favorites from recent weeks:
- Breaking Through My Travel (& My Possibility) "Ceiling" Tara has me asking myself "What are my ceilings? How much happiness or money or fun is too much? What feels impossible to do in my life? Why? How would it feel if I did it?"
- How To Live Your Life Purpose Even When it Seems Crazy - a long video but totally worth watching
- Peace In the Family - Painting - With no peace and love in the family there is no joy in living the life you dream. Family relationships come first.
- Hello Catbus - One family realizing their Westfalia traveling plans.
- Homemaking Lost and Found Kyce says, "While expecting that I should be doing something Worthwhile, I forgot how worthwhile the work I do every day is. And not just worthwhile in the cosmic sense of childrearing as an act of grace, though it is all too easy to forget to put our faith in that simple truth, but worthwhile in the sense of it gives me meaning."
