Chociaż w pierwszej chwili brzmi to raczej irracjonalnie, to tak naprawdę kto z nas nie marzy, żeby przez jakiś czas powiedzieć budzikowi precz, nie martwić o goniące asapy i inne dedlajny i po prostu… żyć?
37-letnia wegańska aktywistka, znana jako Freelee postanowiła rzucić swoje dotychczasowe życie, włącznie z pracą na etacie, zostawić za sobą wyścig szczurów i zacząć nowe życie w dżungli, gdzie całe dnie spędza nago, szukając owoców i ćwicząc.
Oczywiście dziewczyna nie odcięła się od mediów społecznościowych. Jako Instagramerka i YouTuberka na bieżąco informuje swoją szeroką publikę o tym, jak wygląda jej życie w dżungli. Spytacie: skąd ma prąd i internet? No nie wiemy, ale takie są fakty.
Większość dnia spędzam nago, wolna od wpisywania się w schematy. Zakończyłam niedawno toksyczny związek i odnalazłam spokój. Byłam zmęczona pracą w trybie 9-5, budzeniem się razem z budzikiem, zakładaniem niewygodnych ubrań, malowania się tylko po to, by pasować do reszty. Skończyłam z udawanymi uśmiechami i gnieceniem stóp w niewygodnych szpilkach. Nie goliłam się, nie farbowałam włosów, ani nie miałam na sobie makijażu od 6 miesięcy. Myślę, że zaoszczędziłam na tym około 4 tysięcy dolarów.
Oczywiście zadajemy sobie wiele pytań w związku z tą decyzją: gdzie mieszka, skąd ma prąd i jak zarabia na życie (chociaż tutaj pewnie YouTube i Instagram są odpowiedzią), mimo to podziwiamy tę decyzję, nie wiedząc, czy byśmy się na podobną odważyli!
So how do ya like ma coconuts? ?…I just love seeing my DIY coconut bowl collection growing ?It feels really empowering to make things myself rather than pay others. You might think "Oh I could never learn to do that, I'm just not good at that stuff" and that's where you are wrong. I grew up without a shred of do-it-yourself experience, I was taught by this consumerist society that it's better to just buy something rather than attempt to create it yourself. Sure, it may be quicker and easier but where is the personal satisfaction in that? Everytime I use the bowls I feel a sense of purpose and pride. You try, make mistakes (eg. hole in bottom of one bowl) but you learn and become more skilled, confident and powerful each time. Save money and become a stronger, freer woman with each project. ? Remember – If you are not willing to learn, no one can help you, if you are determined to learn, no one can stop you. #gofreeyourself
In my eyes you are successful in life when you have the courage to embrace who you really are, however strange or peculiar that may be. Regardless of whether it fits with societies expectations or cultural norms. Growing up I often said the wrong things, didn't have the right clothing, or the right look, and was laughed at or excluded for being "a bit weird". I never felt fully accepted. Over time I learned to keep my "uncool" thoughts to myself and adapt my appearance so others would feel comfortable being around me. This only left me feeling internally suppressed and frustrated, (certainly not free) until one day when I reached my threshold and thought – ahh fuuuck it, this is boring! And this isn't me! – From then on I decided to just let the TRUE me flow, to be my rawself, to act impulsively, to own that embarrassed look from others and to be the awkward freak I'm born to be. ?The result? Goodbye fake friendships, hello soul mates ☀️#gofreeyourself
You are who you think you are … but, it's who you think you are not, that is really holding you back in life. I used to live a life of comparison, measuring my worth against others rather than appreciating my own gifts. I told myself I wasn't smart enough, strong enough, pretty enough, not worthy of being loved. It was exhausting. Some ways I broke free of this draining mental prison are: ?I embraced my makeup-free face ?Let my bodyhair grow naturally ?Spent more time breathing in nature ?Quit watching pointless drama & celebs ?Stopped contributing to gossip?Quit associating with time-wasters & vitality-bleeders ?Started shopping second-hand ?Started empowering myself and making my own self care products ?Regular exercise?Eating raw till 4 and mainly raw fruit diet ?Focused on developing new useful life skills. Maybe most importantly, I got grateful, and developed purpose in life far more important than my first world problems. Everyday above ground is a good day to be alive. ? #gofreeyourself
In my early teens and most of my twenties I had serious digestive issues. I was often curled up in pain, this picture is symbolic of that. I took courses of strong antibiotics, they only intensified my issues. I was losing my sanity. I decided to book in with the 'best gastroenterologist in Australia'. The 15 min consult cost $215. He looked ill himself but he was the "expert" after all, so I trusted him. I was sent for an endoscopy. $430 later he diagnosed me with "an inflamed gut". Well no shit Sherlock! I could FEEL it was inflamed…but why?? He said I need not worry as there was a special medication coming from the USA soon which would heal me, in the meantime there was another drug he recommended. I knew this was a lie, I'd been there before. As he was writing the script I stood up and pushed the chair away "NO✋️I do NOT want anymore drugs!" and stormed out. Long story short, I decided to take my health into my own hands. I found the raw vegan and raw till 4 lifestyle (most importantly fruit) and finally got out of my bodies way and let my body heal itself. Freedom from your digestive distress is closer than you think. #gofreeyourself Btw – We built this composting toilet, link will be in bio.
I used to work in a concrete jungle, now I just work in the jungle.? How did this happen? Well, I woke up one morning dreading the work day ahead. I was exhausted with the 9-5 grind. Waking to an alarm, commuting over a hour a day dressed in a restrictive suit, painting my face to 'look the part', binding my feet in high heels, and faking a smile to the public. I was sick of working my life away making someone else rich. Maybe the worst, I was bored. I wanted to be turned on and to FEEL something meaningful everyday. That morning I decided to free myself from being a slave. There wasn't any social media back then so I transitioned by becoming a personal trainer with my own business. Soon after I found veganism and my true passion in life.? Don't be afraid, you CAN create this too. One day I will do a video on it. #gofreeyourself #jungleoffice
