If, like me, you live in a western(ized) society, leading a nomadic life (i.e. moves every 1,2,3 years) yet having a sedentary lifestyle (i.e. owning a queen size bed frame), moving is an extremely stressful time in your life.
It's probably the only time when you are forced to really face how much s... you have.
I recently moved for the 13th time.
Every time I think to myself: next time you will be lighter.
Slowly getting there, but even when being uber-careful about the things I agree to own, every time I am surprised by the amount.
This is my dream: Travel lightly. Live lightly. Bring with yourself only the necessary.
