Welcome to our “simply complicated life….”
Did you ever wonder how life gets like that? We layer on thing after thing, and suddenly we are standing In the middle of a vast forest of obligations, complications, intentions and frustrations.
Does it always have to be like this or is there a better way?
Recently, Julie and I hosted my friend and wise sage Greg Burns from The Contrary Farmstead Podcast at our Minneapolis home. Greg was in town for a project, but he spent several hours with us. We fed him a hot dinner, exchanged some wonderful gifts (Nature’s Image Farm honey and applesauce for Small Scale Life jam, dilly beans and DomBucha Kombucha), and had a great conversation!
Fortunately for you, my dear Lifers, this conversation was captured and converted into an episode on the Contrary Farmstead Podcast.
Topics Discussed – Our Simply Complicated Life
Julie and I discussed the following topics with Greg during this episode:
- Why did we start blogging and podcasting?
- Finding balance in life can be tricky sometimes. Even a simple life can be extraordinarily complicated.
- How can we support each other when our passions, goals and dreams don’t necessarily align with our spouses?
- How do we help our partner grow and fulfill their calling?
- Are we trading one rat race (in the urban area) for another (in a rural area)?
