I’ve always felt that as we accumulate more things, it is much more of a burden, since with more stuff comes the need for more space to store it, and less of an opportunity to be able to access it, or even to remember you have it . It’s a ridiculous result of excess, and I’m so happy to be heading in the right direction.
Not only is my perspective on tangible things different after we started thinking about living on a boat, but my attitude about many other daily activities has changed. We started riding bikes more, partially because it’s almost summer, but also because I know it’s only going to be 1 mile away from where I live for a short while, about 2 years. I may never be back here, and I’m so glad that we’re taking advantage of the beauty in this area.
