I actually came up with the blog name “SmallerLivingHugeLife” while I was still back in Salt Lake City, Utah and at the beginning of my decision to move homeward to Virginia.
While attempting to create a “tiny home” blog name and being in the beginning stages of my process of “letting go in a big way” to be able to ‘afford to make the big move’ and to go tiny in a home…I realized that not only was I going Smaller in my Living square footage; I also wanted to have Smaller outlay in bills, Smaller imprint left on the earth, Smaller amount of cleaning and organization time spent in the day to day life hum of things…I wanted to live a large, no, a HUGE bliss-filled meaningful Life. Well shoot, almost everyone I know desires that life in some form or other. Thus, the title of “SmallerLivingHugeLife” blog and motto began…
On February 28th I signed up for an eight week online downsizing course that began the next morning, March 1st and over the next 8 weeks made huge changes in my life…on April 14th I gave 16 days notice at work that my final day was going to be April 30th. On May 1st I began my journey of downsizing a 54 year accumulation of ‘prized possessions’ with the plan of going from a 5 bedroom, 3 bath, 3100 s.f. home in 31 days to a 310 ft. motor coach on wheels…And I did it all!
Not an easy task – will be sharing more on this and how in the coming days….
