[before_listing images= youtube=null] We cannot change our past… we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is take life how it is and roll with it. Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending…i’m 23, married and after a long hard thought out process ive decided to go back to the simple things. i dont want to move away because of the media or the social bullshit, im gonna say it my wife, and i smoke marijuana and if possible wanna get away with having a plant or two and f**k the government hype if i can get away to colorado it would be the best but if not im not that upset about it. i want to build a little hobbit hole in the middle of nowhere and and i can set up a black smithing shop and possibly a little herb garden my views on life is textbook existentialism if you belive in jesus then im all happy for you if your jewish, shalom i dont mind the exchanging of ideas and beliefs. The only thing i dont like is having your beliefs pushed on me. I will respect your beliefs, I’ll even pray with you….. but dont force me to believe something i cant. That being said, i’m open, honest and if there is a problem i want you to express your feeling to me face to face and dont tell me lies – and i would do the same for you

The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, the education, the money, than circumstances, than failure, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company… a church… a home.

The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. [landbuddy_listing images= youtube=null]

    I really like your post and we share similar ideals about existentialism and not having religion pushed onto us. I’m an atheist and I also smoke but it’s illegal where I live and I’m struggling so bad to make ends meet that I can’t afford to do the one thing that minimizes my mental Illness which is consuming cannabis. I’ve always wanted to live in Colorado but I grew up poor and my situation hasn’t improved so I haven’t been able to just leave that easily. I’m a 20 year old female so my fear of being taken advantage of has gotten the best of me and kept me somewhere I don’t want to be, but I would love the company of people who think similarly and want the same things in life as I do. If any interest let me know and I’ll give you my email so we can talk more in depth

    I noticed you weren’t too far from me, and my fiance and I are really interested in talking to like minded individuals and learning more about going off the grid. If you’d like, please email me.

    Webstock: Im from the east and have to agree, there is a big difference in the general attitude between the East and West. I cross counrty road tripped last winter to the southwest for the first time, and what I can say is… its where more colorful birds seem to flock.

    How come all the smart people live out West? I am so happy to hear about people who think like me out here on the East Coast….. You guys have a better mind set than many. It’s hard to find people who actually care about the Earth or even understand what living ‘off the grid’ means. Thank you for your posts.

    I’m interested in doing the same thing as ya’ll. I’m looking at places with good climate for farming. If you’d like to split costs lets discuss possibilities.

    I’ve been to Slab City, cool place to check out in the cooler months, but summer is hell. Theres also alot of BS that goes on around there and the police are now busting chops and arresting people for all sorts of petty nonsense. Nothing good last forever.

  8. devlyin

    haha i have a whole half hour documentary on that place. I like it, almost love it, but too much desert like to build the type of home i want and a little too far from town to do certain things

    You’ve got it right my man! All comes down to live and let live, too bad our society has to challenge that. Cheers
