What do you want out of life?

What do you want from life?  Many people struggle with this question.  Do you want to lead a happier and more meaningful life?  To have clarity of mind?  To feel closer to your real self?  To stop worrying about life and just live it?   Owning alpacas is a way of life,  a lifestyle,  a choice to spend your time doing what is important.  Somewhere along the way a lot of us got confused.  We were told and sold on what we thought we wanted, rather than what we really want and need.  We were told to ask "Where do you want to go today," rather than "What are you doing for the rest of your life?"

Random House defines aspiration as: • strong desire, longing, or aim; ambition: intellectual aspirations • a goal or objective desired.   It became increasingly clear that I wanted my life to be about making a difference in the quality of my family's life as measured by the qualities of loving and caring.   I did not want to look back in time and see only work.
Do you?

Consider building an alpaca lifestyle for yourself - where you will have a happier and meaningful life.  You learn something new every day about nature and our world.  You learn how intelligent alpacas are and how "humane" they are.  You will get in touch with how precious life is.  You will make wonderful friends - human and animal.  You will definitely get in touch with what is important in life. 

One day, a friend of mine came to visit and sat on a chair in the barn while I did chores. Honey Crystal went right over to her,   nosing her, and   blowing softly in her face.  Honey would not leave my friend's side.  Honey knew that my friend was sad and filled with worries. My friend was amazed at how much Honey Crystal empathized with her and tried to make her feel better.  She has never forgotten that experience.
