“Why would you want a tiny home? You’re not tiny and you have three dogs and a cat…and you have Kip, who has to have a 60″ television screen. How ever will that work out?” I only have one thing to say. “You are “The Limit.” (That’s Mom speak for you are 100 percent nuts.)
No, that’s not my mother talking to me. It’s me talking to me. I got up there in my head again and tried to make some sense of things.
Oh look…a tiny crown
“Make sense? You sold your small house. I thought you loved that house. Well MG, you agreed to this. The decision has been made and there is no looking back. Onward you go. Don’t even try to make sense, because it’s too late, baby, it’s too late. There’s no time to hesitate.”
Will I ever have a full length mirror again?
(Please make her stop.)
“Now…go out there and make it happen! The right lot is out there and you will find it. It might take a while, but there’s nothing to worry about. You have the RV, silly. You will not be homeless.
Oh, jeez…are you crying over brick and mortar or are you catching a cold. It’s probably just allergies.”
(I just had to get that out.)
At times a new perspective is needed in order to take a fresh look at situations and see missed opportunities or solutions. What do I need to see this through and not stress over every obstacle that arises?
I need to find peace and courage. I was put on this earth to be me. I’m adventuresome, right? I will step forward in faith that Kip and I will find the right lot, the right tiny house, and all the while, stay in our right minds.
We have established that in order to find a lot to put our tiny house on, we will have to look in an area that is not inside the city limits. The evil cities are responsible for the rules that banish tiny homes to the outskirts. To the county we must go. We will buy our tiny piece of earth someplace that is not too far out. Maybe it will have some lovely trees and be in a secluded, but not too isolated area. It’s out there just waiting for us to find it.
It will be a snap for us to move. We were smart to clear out all of the closets and get rid of all the things we no longer use. I have no doubt that we can be very comfortable living in a tiny home….if… we don’t continue to collect “stuff.” All of our belongings will have to take up as little space as possible. I can’t tell you how much I am enjoying our house since we cleared everything out. I’m going to be a very happy minimalist who will have lots of time to kick back and enjoy life.
Mom always said, “Don’t spend your life chasing that last bit of dirt around the corner. Your house will be there long after you’re dead and gone and your hard work will be for naught.”
Mom made a lot of sense. I should let her get up in my head more often…especially now.
Is that a 60″ screen?
