Discouraged or Determined?

I swear that one day we will have this blog up and running on a consistent basis! We will post regularly. We will do this!! We promise!

Life has been so crazy the past few weeks! Hospital stays, kidney stones, stomach bugs, overtime, medical bills, car and truck repairs, four-legged goodbyes…. Sometimes I feel like we’re being pulled in a million directions while carrying the weight of the world… sigh… But that’s life, full of ups and downs, surprises and clichés!

Life has many ways of testing a person’s will, either by having nothing happen at all or by having everything happen all at once.” ― Paulo Coelho, The Winner Stands Alone

I stumbled across the above quote while browsing Pinterest and it really hit home. We are obviously in the midst of an “everything at once”  period. We’re wondering how we can make this happen. There are so many aspects to sort out: blogging, YouTube video creation, legal aspects, financial considerations, and determining the best tools and products to use to name a few. It’s become difficult to accomplish all of this while working full time (and sometimes overtime). The crazy thing is that it’s actually making us want to do this more! We want the freedom that comes with simple living. We wanted to do the things we enjoy, rather than working our life away towards a goal of “someday.”

This blog is a tool we will use to document our struggles and our successes. It’s not going to be easy, but it will be worth it! When things get rough, we’ll focus on why we want this so bad. We’ll use that to motivate ourselves to keep going.

I hope you decide to stick with us as we figure this all out. We already appreciate the love and support we’ve received so far. If you haven’t already, check out our YouTube Channel!

Stay tuned for more!
