Ep 3: Why I Gave Up My Comfortable Life to Live In a Yurt on a Goat Farm

Episode Template.png

Sometimes the beating of our heart’s desires don’t always make sense. At least, not for a little while that is.

I never once thought about living in a yurt until the opportunity arose and became a very real possibility in my life. If anything, I always thought of myself as more of a tiny home or cabin deep in the woods gal when it came to alternative living.

But when the opportunity for this experience came into my life on one serendipitous early July afternoon, something inside of me knew I had to pursue it.

True to how most of the things I’m suppose to be doing happen, it all unfolded rather effortlessly and today, I live in a yurt on a goat farm in Northern California.

I’m excited to share more with you in this episode.

Episode Highlights

  • Why I moved to a small town to live in a yurt and how I never even wanted to live in one!

  • The questions I started to ask myself that got me to make changes.

  • Why I often feel like a fraud.

  • How my unhappiness made me say “Hell Yes!” to this dream

  • What my goals for "#yurtlife are

In this very first episode, I’m talking about how I landed on my path to creativity. From thinking I didn’t have a creative bone in my body, to becoming a self-taught woodworker and artist, writer, and just all around wildly creative woman, I’m sharing the number one thing I started following.

The voice in my head.

Yep, I started hearing a voice dropping little breadcrumbs which has inevitably led me to where I am today.

If you think you “just aren’t creative” this episode is for you.
