I started my minimalism journey in the summer of 2015. It was unintentional, as most of my life before starting this journey.
The more I researched how to simplify my home and ways to improve my mental health [I’ve suffered from depression and stress for years!], the more minimalism kept popping up in my search results. The bloggers and YouTubers that I learned from helped me see that this was the ticket.
Reducing the things I owned, creating routines that replenish my mind, and seeking out my dreams in life all surround the minimalist lifestyle.
I wanted to document my journey, so this blog was created.
From there, I have helped hundreds of women [and a few men], who thought a minimalist lifestyle was about living scarce or with so little that they could not function in their specific lifestyle.
It is such a joy to help everyone realize that this is not the case.
Minimalism looks different for everyone.
My life is a lot simpler than it used to be. I used to be a career woman who enjoyed homesteading and blogging as a hobby. Now, I’m a full-time online entrepreneur who still enjoys homesteading.
I’ve been in love with the same man for more than half my life and together we have two fur babies and a flock of chickens. We’ve had cows and pigs in the past and see them again in our future.
The thing I love most about combining our ambitions with minimalism is that we’ve been able to fast track our progress to living our absolute dream life!
We purchased virgin land with the vision of building our dream home and homestead. It is the place we want to raise our children and learn all about self-sufficiency.
We’ve got the homestead and very simple life. It is only a matter of time before our home and children move from being a dream to reality.
You see, I believe life can be anything you imagine, as long as the excess is removed!
Excess [or clutter] keeps us from seeing our dream life clearly, so when we declutter all of it, we create a clear path from where we are currently to where we want to be.
You will see as you go through these posts and others on this blog, that success in life is not determined by how new and expensive your vehicle is, the size of your house, or anything dealing with material possessions.
Living an enriched life means much more than having the newest gadget or a large salary. While these things are tools that we can utilize, they should not be the only reason we exist.
Anyways, The Tannehill Homestead provides lots of action-based content full of great information, but here are a few of my treasured and most popular minimalism focused posts to get you started.
