A Quick Tiny House Analogy
Living in a large house for the average person is like placing a huge hamster wheel in the living room, hopping on it and running for 30 years to keep it and the associated expenses paid for. Slow down and the lights dim and the house gets colder inside. Hop off and take a nice break to enjoy time with your friends and family and the phone rings with bill collectors on the other end. Drag the hamster wheel out in the back yard, put a tarp over it, quit your job and decide to pursue your life’s passion for a year, then you and your family are without a home.
Living in a tiny house for the person of average means is like giving yourself the largest pay raise you’ve ever received. It’s placing you and your family in a small dwelling that safely and comfortably houses and protects you from the elements and brings you together. The love and memories you make in your tiny home are enough to make the house glow. You decide to quit your job and pursue your life’s passion. Since your home is paid for and expenses are minimal, you can look out of your home from the inside rather than look into your home from the outside.
Living in a tiny house that is paid for kicks the doors open to freedom, prosperity, humility and giving yourself and your family the time to jump off of the hamster wheel and enjoy life and each other.
