I’ve moved every year since I was 18. I don’t own a home, I don’t own a bed or desk or nightstand. I don’t even have any kitchenware. Nope, don’t follow me if you’re looking for cute puppies or kitten pics, I have none. I travel light.
Every time I move, I donate, give away, or trash most of my belongings for a new start. I’ve kept my life decluttered in this way, but it still felt like I had too much tying me down.
When I moved to Colombia in January I packed a carry on and decided to travel light. What’s inside is what I have until I return home to see my family for the holidays in November. Owning almost nothing has simplified my life more than I dreamed it would.
No wasting money on impulse buys at the mall (can’t fit it in my bag anyway). No worrying about if I’m re wearing an outfit too soon (I am). No planning my next vacation for months and getting a dog sitter for a week. When I want to go, I go. Indefinitely.
Collect moments, not things. I own nothing, and I’m happier than I’ve ever been. I have the freedom to travel wherever I want to go, and that’s all that I need in this life. There’s a great big world out there, and me and my carry on are going to see it all.
Travel light. See the world.
All my love,
