I’ve been talking about downsizing and minimalism for a long time. Then we moved into an RV and hit the road last fall. Living with less was no longer a goal or a theory, it was an unavoidable fact of life.
And we love it!
Neither Lori nor I have any desire to ever again live in a home of more than 600 sq. feet. We don’t need more space than that, and we don’t want to pay for or care for it. We like the fact keeping the house clean is a minor task, and we like being forced to make decisions about things. Pretty much anything we buy has to replace something. One in, one out is a way of life now.
It’s amazing how little you need to be healthy and happy, and it’s amazing how much easier it is to be healthy and happy when you have less and do less. All too often our stuff owns us rather than the other way around, and stuff can be a tyrant.
What would less look like for you? How would that feel?
