Hi! Welcome and thank you for visiting Enchanted Charisma. I started this blog to write about homesteading, gardening, healthy cooking, building and creating things that will help us get closer towards a non reliant lifestyle.
Here's a little bit about me. Life. We all get one chance. I often wonder about the value of life and what it is that makes it valuable. I wonder why we are the way we are and how were all connected to each other and the worlds elements. I don't have life figured out and I'm not afraid to admit it! I'm a happy individual on my journey to learning, loving, smiling to life!
I started traveling the world when I as 17. I was fortunate enough to have a career 'happening to me' in the modeling industry and meanwhile 10 successful years in the fashion world have passed by. I've always felt as if I was watching my own my play at the theatre. Not being aware of the things I was doing. I was traveling to a lot of cool places, made great money and yet I didn't feel fulfilled! It made me feel guilty to think I didn't feel one way or another about it. How many girls out there would love to have my job! That was all it was to me, a job. I wanted to figure out what I'm capable of doing besides standing in front of a camera and make more money for doing less than I bet a lot of other people that work 3 jobs and still make less! I finally touched base with myself and realized I was being too focussed on what was happening outside of me more than what's inside and closest. I had functionally accepted my life and that didn't sit well wit me. I wanted to grow, change and not worry about what people think of me. To become, accept and learn to let go being my true self! So me and my then fiancè decided to leave cluttered NYC. We were lucky with house hunting and found our dream home that same year. A 3 bedroom home built in 2011 with 5 beautiful fenced acres of land. There's a creek bed that divides the property in 2 pieces of the pie and lots of oak trees! Our dream is to turn it all a self sustainable homestead and live a happy free spirited journey. We have a lot of work to do before we would be able to call it self sustainable but we're motivated to get there one step at a time!
