When I think about myself and what thoughts I had about my future, minimizing my possessions was never on the list. Minimalist was very far from my mind. As I look around the studio, I want to pitch almost everything. I thought what I brought here was sufficient to get us through the summer. It was too much actually.
The more I give away, the less I have to think about and be responsible for. For whatever reason, I don't feel like owning a home right now. If I had to pick something to buy, I would pick a tiny home or a container home. I just don't see myself in a traditional house. It's so interesting how my perspective on life has changed so drastically. I want the least amount of responsibility in caring for a home. I never used to be this way. I used to have a house and took great care of it.
As I think about it more, I am wondering if this is happening to match the kind of life I would live for the next year or two, for whatever God has in store for me. There is such a drive and determination to just get rid of it all. When I think about traveling again next month, it's liberating to know that I have nothing here to be attached to and to worry about. Today we decided to sell the car as well.
In Luke 12:15 Jesus said "...life does not consist in an abundance of possessions." My prayer is that in the months ahead I will understand the meaning of this scripture in a much more profound way.
