Living a life of travel in an RV is not always luxurious. There have honestly been times we question our sanity for making this leap. Don’t get me wrong, RV living is amazing, but it can be stressful at times. So let me explain what makes it difficult and why it is worth it!
When we decided to downsize from 1,800 square feet to our home on wheels, our motivation was easy. It was our daughter. She was the inspiration to begin this lifestyle of adventure. Downsizing was our golden ticket to more family time. If we gave up the house and eliminated all payments, then life would be more simple and more time could be focused on our family.
Living in a small space can be challenging at times. Downsizing and elimination were the hardest part of the transition. I literally had dedicated a room of our house to my closet and condensing that down to a small (very small) closet has been quite the task. Not to mention family heirlooms, kitchen supplies, furniture, you name it, it was tough!
If that’s where this post wrapped up, it probably wouldn’t seem worth it to downsize, but…
Life with less is MORE!
It is not about the smaller space, but more about what the smaller space gives us in return. Letting go of “stuff” has given us MORE freedom, flexibility, travel, and family time than we ever could have imagined.
Tiny living means your space can go downhill FAST! I could have just cleaned up the RV and in no time it will be chaos once again, especially with a 3 year old. My husband always says you can tell what I have been doing based on the trail left behind me.
Guilty as charged.
