We believe anyone can make the transition to tiny living.
Firstly, we would suggest it is absolutely possible. We openly admit to friends that we felt confined in our old life. Ironic huh? But it makes sense. We felt like there was no way out of renting and (in future) having a large debt from a mortgage. And although that’s a happy reality for some people, it’s not the only way to live.
Secondly we would highlight that, from personal experience, we’ve been amazed at what we have easily been able to do without. There’s a quote by Marcus Aurelius that we always come back to, “Always bear this in mind, that very little indeed is necessary for living a happy life.” On all accounts thus far we’ve found this to be true.
Lastly, we would encourage those seeking to live small that the process can look messy and the solution can be creative. We searched for a creative solution to our desire to live with less. And for us, the solution was moving into a beautiful little caravan. The outcome will look different for different people and this is okay…perfect in fact. Heed your true desires and listen in your gut.
