This is the first of many posts that will revolve around how much time goes into every detail of beginning a project like this. There is a lot to do and luckily I have half a year to plan. Right now I know that nothing will be accomplished if I don’t hunker down and start saving. This is going to take a lot of discipline. Why do I love spending money? I am learning to replace my consumer habits with other hobbies: Jyotish, writing, reading, etc.
I am excited to begin the process of downsizing my life this month as I prepare to move into a sublet situation that will save me a lot of money this winter, but will also force me to get rid of everything I have laying around that I don’t really need. This will be a good lesson in getting back to my college years in Los Angeles, living in a bedroom the size of a closet! Everything I owned back then fit into my car. This is no longer the case!
Wish me luck. This is going to take skill, but I’m ready!
