I'm one of the people who are after grandeur in life but in my case, society or any sort of public or private expectations are not at play. I am, in my sound mind and will, behind my decision, solely.
But I'm at the same time in love with an off-grid, self-sustainable life with everything's ordinary. I have seen the video of that woman and her family and it fills me with euphoria with the knowledge that at least someone is doing it.
What's hopeful is that — my sort of grandeur and the ordinary life is not entirely incompatible.
Thank you for this great post.
