This month marks 20 months that I've been living in a motorhome. When I first got the RV and moved into it I honestly did not think I'd be living in it this long, but here I am. I've learned so much simply by living in this 28 foot by 8 foot metal box over the last almost 2 years.
But the number one thing that I've learned is how little we truly need the things we think we can't live without. The majority of my earthly possessions are in two storage containers, and over the past 20 months I've only gone into those containers a handful of times… things that I was so picky with (like furniture and rugs) 5 or 6 years ago now sit collecting dust in a storage space. Clothes and shoes that I paid way too much money for sit in trash bags as do movie collections, electronics, wall art, and more. I guess what this has all taught me is: life is more than "things" - life is about people, it's about experiences, and it's about love and compassion and kindness… Least of all it's about things. Those things that I "loved" so much are now the things that I live without. Just something to think about this holiday season.
