During this time in our lives, we as a family, are learning! We are going through, what I like to refer to it as, a reality check!
How quickly life can change, out of our control. How quickly you can be working your dream job and then poof, your not! How quickly you can own a thriving business, the surprise it’s gone! What we think of as normal, is now so far out of reach (for now!)
However, there is a better way of looking at it!
I want to make sure you understand, we are all doing this together! This is why I am sharing with you, what I’ve learned and how it has comforted me. There will be options for you to consider if you are needing them.
Yes, there is no hiding it, there is loss all over the World; that is our new reality. Loss does not have to remain loss! Loss is a time to get creative, not just in work, but in your lifestyle.
Start planning for a simple future! Do we need all those bills? Do we need a high mortgage? Do we need to pay an even higher rent to cover someone else’s mortgage and expenses? Do you feel trapped knowing you will still need to pay these things? I haven’t even spoke about Gas and Power bills yet…guess what I don’t feel I need too…they are still there!
However, the answer to all of that is NO!
You have options! The question is, are you willing to live a more simple life in order to not have the pressure of a huge financial load?
My family and I, have taken the past month, to look at our lives, and to find ways of cutting costs. Minimize life!
We have been researching different “home” options out there and to be honest, they give me more excitement to look forward too one day. Everything from full-time RV living (mind you, there are currently very minimal choices in that department for people to stay at), shipping container homes (supplies can be recycled to finish the inside of the container), renting land to place trailers or shipping containers on, Yurt’s, tiny homes, and commune living (not religious commune’s but that is your choice) where you rent land or buy farm land “together” with friends or family and place numerous trailers, containers, etc. on the land and have a community garden, laundry, etc.
The lives we live now, have taught us that being humble in our approach is a gift! We are going to go back to living a simple life. We have no detailed answers as to all the questions in how we are going to do this, or which option we are going to take, but at least we have decided to live a life where we are at Peace.
This lifestyle is not for everyone, but we have learned, the last thing we want to worry about is astronomical loss. We are all going through that now, we don’t want to go through it again. Living having learned valuable lessons is a Gift! We are going to make sure we share that gift with our experiences to as many people as possible.
Keep Sharing The Love!
