The Dream Of Owning A Home
Is owning our own home a dream or an illusion, we want to put our roots down and own a little slice of paradise to call our own to show we have achieved something in our life.
In achieving that goal/dream we need to work to be able to pay the bills to keep ourselfs afloat, land tax, water, sewage, power, maintenance and so on, so do we work to keep our heads just a float to be able to live a dream that engulfs us into debt and critique from others, your house is too small, it's not nice enough for me to visit so on and so on, why do we let other's critiques put stress and debt on our shoulders when they aren't the ones paying or living their.
We all want, dream bigger than we can achieve at times, but to do it in reality at what cost...
Do we live to work or live to enjoy life
When achieving these dreams of the desired location, home, schooling does reality kick in with the realization of that it's not all that it's cracked up to be, living in debt, over working to be able to stay afloat each week... That wasn't the dream right?
Does consumption take over our life, is that how we justify that we need to have large homes to display stuff...
Could we all afford homes if we worked together, I know crazy thought right....
Have you ever stayed at a hotel/motel, a cabin, tent or somewhere smaller than you live and thought hmmm this size could work for us if we change this, put this here, you could see with small changes that things could somewhat work, but we go back to our living week by week by the seat of our pants, don't think about it again.
What if you and some friends helped each other to build a home each weather a cabin, tiny house, container home maybe on some shared land or land that you were able to build on, maybe a transportable house, where everyone worked together and were able to achieve their dreams together. (I know a little absorbed).
The Stumbling Block
The stumbling block that seems to hold us by the gonads (balls), moola (money) why do we use this to crush our dreams and talk our self's out of aching what we want to achieve.
People throw away usable items that you maybe able to use to build a home, also what about asking around, builders - they throw out bits all the time, some do let you take their cut off or stuff they aren't going to use at times, recycling stores sell unwanted goods that you maybe able to pick up for a bargain and reuse.
When you have kids you want a bigger house so they can spread out, but in doing this are we also losing precious bonding time with their faces in a device instead of going outside together exploring the big outdoors.
Careful ingenuity and engineering could make a small space practicable, livable to meet all your family's needs.
Let's look at some idea's to get the juices flowing of smaller homes...
Enjoy the little things in life, still live your dream without the debt.
We don't need to live in cookie cutter homes to live the way others want us to live, we can still dream big of owning a home, but can do it thinking small on a minimal budget that can give you the lifestyle were you can be in the drivers seat of.
Living in a smaller house that may be movable you would be able to have at home comfort by being able to take your home on holiday with you were ever the wind may take you!
Would you consider living tiny to achieve your dreams?
