Una youtuber australiana de Queensland conocida como «Freelee» decidió llevar a cabo hace un año un cambio radical en sus vidas: dejar la civilización junto a su pareja para librarse de "la vida de esclava" que llevaba trabajando cinco días a la semana para mudarse a una jungla sudamericana desde hace un año, donde vive desnuda, sin maquillaje y completamente al natural.
Esta mujer de 37 años come frutas y verduras que cultiva ella misma en la selva, se ducha en las lluvias monzónicas y bebe de riachuelos de la selva, consiguiendo así ahorrar más de 4.000 dólares únicamente en productos cosméticos durante el tiempo que lleva viviendo lejos de la civilización, según informa el diario británico «Daily Mail».
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. ðŸ˜...The result? Goodbye fake friendships, hello soul mates â˜€ï¸#gofreeyourself
La bloquera australiana publica sus fotos en Instagram y vídeos en YouTube, en las que aparece desnuda o cubriéndose con ropa hecha de materiales orgánicos como cáscaras de coco. De esta manera, «Freelee» comparte con sus seguidores varias imágenes de su nuevo estilo de vida, en donde se muestra sobre los árboles, comiendo varias frutas y con una computadora.
So how do ya like ma coconuts? ðŸ˜¸...I just love seeing my DIY coconut bowl collection growing ðŸ˜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. ðŸ’ª 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
«Freelee» bebe en un día normal más de dos litros de zumo de naranja recién exprimido, que le ayuda a mejorar su circulación y aumentar las defensas de su sistema inmunológico. Pese a que ya era famosa por su dieta absolutamente vegana, poco a poco la mujer ha ido reemplazando sus alimentos cocidos por comida cruda.
Just looking into the canopy thinking back. ðŸŒ¿Many of you don't know this but I grew up on a farm until I was 16. I always felt closer to animals than humans. I spent many happy hours with pet chickens. I loved them, cuddled them, they were my friends. One day however, it was time for my friends, to become my meal. No! I felt like my heart was being ripped out. Why did it have to be like this?? There MUST be another option??...Not today. Dad made me watch as he killed them. It was part of â€˜living off the landâ€™. Was he a terrible person for doing so? No, he did the right thing, he showed me the gruesome reality of my meal. The chickens didnâ€™t die immediately and made painful blood gurgling sounds as they desperately tried to cling to life. It was devastating to see my friends killed that day, I remember that moment like it was yesterday. In fact, no one in the family liked the â€œprocessâ€ so we put the blinders back on and paid for plastic-wrapped chicken from the supermarket. This is just one of the reasons I eat the way I do today. I now largely live off the land but these days my food gives itself freely to me. No trauma. No screaming. No bleeding. No suffering for my meals. #gofreeyourself
«¿Que si ahora voy a estar desnuda en cada fotografía? Sí, desnuda en la jungla. Libre de ropa, etiquetas, zapatos, maquillaje y depilación. Simplemente, uno se siente bien», escribe la mujer bajo las fotos.
