It's All About Love.
There's something about distilling your life down to its essence that is very appealing to me. I like the simplicity of it. The cleanliness of it. The spaciousness of it all.
"Hi, I read this book on manifesting your soul mate and they suggested emptying out half your closet to create room because the Universe loves a vacuum and so I did, and then I moved into a space about the size of your closet. It just seemed to make so much sense. Somehow."
I'm looking around my current place, trying to figure out what to release into the wild beyond, so I can move into micro space. It turns out, even though I don't have a lot of stuff accumulated, a whole lot of stuff is still going to have to move on out the door. It's a bit daunting, actually. Letting go of things isn't that hard. I've done quite a bit of that over the last couple of decades. There are some unique issues that come with playing with this level of transition and transformation during the second half of life. Namely, mementos, photos, and books. I'm still trying to figure out how to manage this without letting go of any of that.
I've come to the conclusion my Tiny House desires and my Tiny House experiment are really about an invitation to love. More loving time with myself, more creative time, more loving time with others. A deeper awareness of the world around me. So that's the new equation for today. Tiny Space = Big Love.
I'll probably noodle that whole thing through again tomorrow and get an entirely different answer, but Love will serve me for today.
