Gratitude. Humility. Grace.
Gratitude. Humility. Grace. These are the words that struck me most in watching Dee Williams’ of PAD Tiny House’s heart felt and beautiful presentation at a TEDx talk in Portland last year. Landing into each of those qualities of being is a practice for me. The more I practice finding each of them in my day to day life, the more naturally that I slip into them and the longer that they stay in my awareness as I move through my life.
The more gratitude I experience, the more joyous I feel and the more good things seem to come my way. The more humility I feel, the more honest my communication and the more meaningful my relationships become. The more grace I embody, the more pleasant the pace of my life and the more I am able to appreciate the miracle of life.
One of the aspects that I love most about immersing myself into the movement of tiny house living is that I am daily reminded of each of these qualities by those that are beautifully telling the story of their journey. Like Dee Williams with this video. We are getting to break out of the confines of what society has imposed on us within the support of a massive group of loving, supportive and enthusiastic tiny house people.
Whenever I get weak at the knees during this emotional, physical and spiritual journey of living tiny, I know where to go for support, encouragement, ideas, and fun. We are all in this together and I for one am incredibly grateful to be a part of it all.
