I’ve discovered things about myself (Michael) while living in a tiny home. Here are two psychological discoveries that I’ve found.

1.  An over whelming sense of gratefulness

The carpet, hot running water, warm floors, and a small number of insects was never something I concentrated on when I was living in a normal suburban neighborhood. Now, that I don’t have those things, I found myself feeling completely grateful for what I used to have.

These days, if the cold water runs, the floor is swept, and I can name the insect crawling on my wall, I feel totally blessed.

2. The psychological grip over material things that have no value

One of the hardest things for me to do – as we moving into our tiny space – was to let go of items that had no value in my life. It was hard to let go of old college books – I felt my grandson would need it one day. It was hard to let go of my old computer that I last turned on in 2008.

My mind was welded to merchandise in my house that provided me no value where I was going.
