If you're reading this, you are either someone I know or someone that's into tiny houses. Tiny houses. are great on so many different levels and I push and promote the virtues of tiny living at any and every opportunity that I get. As you mull your options and try to figure out if a tiny house is right for you, I want to encourage you to do some or all of the following things to move further down the road towards arming yourself with as much knowledge and insight to allow you to move beyond simply seeing tiny houses as a 'someday' sort of thing:
This seems to be the time of year that all of us reflect on the past year and contemplate the new year. Depending on what kind of 2018 you had and what kind of 2019 you anticipate, this can either be a good or bad experience. Tiny houses played a huge role in 2018 for me. I was fortunate to have been able to build and provide several of them to my customers. I got the satisfaction of creating something with my hands and putting that out there for people to enjoy. That's already leaps and bounds better than a few years ago when reflecting on my 9 to 5 existence held no such inspiration.
I enter into 2019 looking to share more, build more and above all enjoy the process of doing so. I'm beyond fortunate to be doing something that I really draw personal satisfaction from. In fact, it is my enjoyment of what I do that I hope to instill in others. Tiny living, minimalism and everything that comes with it is something that I embrace more and more everyday. That process of being grateful and thankful for what we have so often gets lost in our busy lives. It's when I live in the moment and consciously that I enjoy the most peace and inspiration.
My hope for 2019 is to use that inspiration and push harder and further than my comfort zone. I never thought that I could be an author, yet I have 3 books coming out this year. I will not allow self limiting beliefs to restrain me anymore. As scary as life can be when you take that approach, it is also at its most rewarding when you swim upstream. I encourage you to do the same and find fulfillment and happiness wherever it manifests itself in your life. If that fulfillment happens to include a tiny house for yourself...let me know. :)
