MEL Riling is living the dream – she has her own cabin in the woods, complete with her pets and a creek to swim in.
The best part though? She can dance around like no one is watching – which she said is a big part of her healing journey.
In her latest TikTok, she expressed how thankful she is for being able to live where she does.
Captioning a video of her dancing outside, she said: “I was definitely born into the right era. I live alone in the woods with the cutest pets ever.”
As she danced around the rushing stream, she continued: “My healing looks like this and nobody tries to burn me at the stake.
“And the best part is if a relationship with someone isn’t serving me, I can end it.”
Viewers of the viral video flooded Mel’s comment section with their thoughts.
One said: “You’re living the dream. What a gift.”
Mel replied: “Having the time of my life!”
Another commented: “Blessings of kindness within the journey. Natures healing joyfulness afar.”
One woman who left everything behind and moved into a cabin in the woods has said she wouldn’t change a thing.
Hannah Duggan has shocked people with her lifestyle out in the wilderness.
The young woman shared the process with her nearly 500,000 TikTok followers in a video that has 6.7million likes.
In the clip, Hannah shows her impressive DIY construction journey.
She writes: “A few years ago, I moved into the woods alone.
“I’d always been a city girl and I didn’t know anything about living 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 made her own ice rink when the mercury plunged.
But Hannah eventually decided to move after the winter became too harsh.
She found another cabin – with better insulation – nearby.
Now, Hannah documents her latest projects in the new homestead – a property such as a farmhouse or an outbuilding that is designed for living off the land.
