Foresight: If I knew then what I know now
If only I knew then what I know now. How many of us have uttered that exact phrase? To be able to act with foresight would certainly allow the decisions that we make to be better, wouldn’t it? As luck would have it, Rebecca and I now find ourselves in that very position.
Facebook reminded me that in March 2010, 8 years ago, we were working hard to diverge ourselves of all of our stuff. The sale of our house was due to close and we would spend the next few months surreptitiously living out of an 8’x8′ closet in our martial arts gym.
Fast forward to today where we have sold virtually everything that wouldn’t fit into our bike bags, we will soon be forced to reverse that procedure, to acquire all the bits and pieces that one needs to live and earn a living on land. Knowing what we know now, how will our purchase decisions be different from what they were in the past? Think second-hand stores to start!
For those who are interested in the topic but are new to this site, there are quite a number of posts that talk about our stuff-purging process. Skip to the beginning of the blog and read from there to more easily find them.
