MEL Riling is living her dream – she has her own cabin in the woods, complete with her pets and a stream to swim in.
The best part? She can dance around like nobody’s looking – which she says is a big part of her healing journey.
In her latest TikTok, she expressed how grateful she is to be able to live where she lives.
Captioning a video of her dancing outside, she wrote: “I was definitely born into the right time. I live alone in the woods with the cutest pets ever.”
As she danced around the babbling brook, she continued, “My healing looks like this and nobody’s trying to burn me at the stake.”
“And the best part is, if a relationship with someone isn’t working for me, I can end it.”
Viewers of the viral video flooded Mel’s comments section with their thoughts.
One said: “You are living the dream. What a gift.”
Mel replied, “I’m having the time of my life!”
Another commented: “Blessings of kindness on the journey. Healing joy of nature far away.”
A woman who left everything and moved into a cabin in the woods said she wouldn’t change a thing.
Hannah Duggan shocked people with her wilderness lifestyle.
The young woman shared the process with her almost 500,000 TikTok followers in a video that has 6.7 million likes.
In the clip, Hannah shows her impressive DIY building journey.
She writes: “A few years ago I moved into the forest by myself.
“I’ve always been a city girl and knew nothing about life in the country.”
She shares pictures of herself working on the bedroom, bathroom and “everything in between.”
Hannah says she “learned how to chop wood” to keep her fires going through the winter.
She also says she built her own ice rink when the temperature dropped.
But Hannah eventually decided to move when the winter got too harsh.
She found another hut – with better insulation – nearby.
Now Hannah is documenting her latest projects on the new homestead – a piece of land like a farmhouse or outbuilding designed for country living.
