Start downsizing and it gets easier to let go

Amazingly, I realize I don't miss the items I've given away.  I don't.  It is a relief actually. This surprises me.  I thought, after downsizing, I would miss my stuff.  I thought I was sacrificing my things for a better way.  Come to find out, I don't feel like I have sacrificed anything at all.  


For me, this sustainability path is about finding a better way to live, simpler, with less effects on me, my pocketbook, my time, and the environment.  


Downsizing is sustainable for many reasons.  Right now, I'm loving it - mainly because of the relief that comes with letting go of things that don't matter.
