It’s been a while that I’ve provided an update on the tiny house. In light of the New Year, I thought it’d be proper to share the vision of the Nature’s Nest Tiny Home. Winter is here and we are nearing the 2nd year anniversary of the tiny house. Two years ago seems like just yesterday… putting up the walls, roof, sheathing, siding, windows, door, & etc. etc.!
But the beginning of the quest started in the Summer of 2013. When considering where I wanted to live after graduating college, I searched, “affordable environmentally friendly homes” and was immediately captivated by the images of different tiny, micro homes. “How brilliant!” I thought… This would be perfect. (Little did I know at the time what I was getting myself into…)
That “aha” moment when the tiny house journey began is a time I reflect on frequently when reminiscing about why I started this mission in the first place. In essence, this moment is truly the propeller to Nature’s Nest and the meaning of what it is to embrace living tiny. It’s birthed a vision and desire to share with others how to simplify one’s life and embrace the world around us more mindfully.
When you think about it, what else is our purpose in life but for everyone to thrive and live happily? We all want our little corner of the universe to live in peace. In simplifying or self-sustaining one’s own needs we can turn back to our roots to the land as a planet thereby using less, taking less, spending less, working less, exploring more, seeing more, awakening more, being more (and perhaps even rediscovering one’s full potential)!
The vision is that through tiny house living (sustainable living, symbiotic living, reciprocal living, minimal living, efficient living, mindful living) we nurture the seed that grows us, mother earth. The idea is to not only sustain one’s self but also the planet (and the infinite beings we share Earth with). Join Nature’s Nest in this vision!
