Living Small In A Super-Sized World
Do you ever get the feeling that life is getting so big that it’s almost unmanageable? By that I mean owning a bigger house, having more “stuff,” and just trying to keep up with everyone on social media? It’s exhausting! I’ve been feeling this way over the past few years and have tried to make some changes in my own life. I’m going to share some ways of living small in a super-sized world.
Decide What’s Important
The first thing you need to decide is what’s important in your life. For me, I just needed to simplify my life so it was more manageable and what I wanted. Just like everyone is different, so too will everyone’s needs and wants be different. What works for me in my life will probably be different from what works in yours–and that’s ok! I’ve had to make some major life-altering decisions in the last few years. I went from living in a 6500 square foot home to a 1900 square foot home. Some people might see that as a bad thing, but I love it. I enjoy living on a small scale. With that downsizing, I also de-cluttered my life both physically and mentally by doing a major clean-out and only keeping what’s essential to me. It’s made a big difference!
Focus On What You Love
If you really evaluate your life and focus on what you love, it makes it easier. I’ve shifted from buying and accumulating to enjoying what I have and focusing more on my home and family and everyday happiness. What’s the most important part of your life? Decide what it is you love the most and get rid of the rest. It’s not worth your time, worry, or energy to keep up with everything. By getting rid of all the “clutter” in your life, you’ll find more time for what you do love. You’ll find your life to be more manageable by defining your focus, keeping what’s important, and getting rid of the rest.
