Sometimes we all need to recharge our creative and motivational batteries so to speak. There are a number of things I find do this for me. One of them is reading the stories of others who are focused on living a simple life and pursuing their passions – be it writing, art, photography, etc.
A blog I have become quite a fan of lately is RowdyKittens-go small, think big & be happy. I stumbled onto Tammy’s site one evening while browsing the web for sites about tiny and simple living. The look of her blog immediately caught my eye, so I stopped to stay for a while. I’ve been following her site ever since, and it has quickly become one of my favorites.
Tammy doesn’t live in an Airstream, but she lives in a tiny house. She writes about her tiny home, simplifying, writing, and photography. She also writes about finding the courage to do what she enjoys as her day job. I have read her book Smalltopia: A Practical Guide to Working for Yourself. It offers tips for starting a small business, and Tammy shares her story along with the stories contributed by several other small business owners. The book was a great $7 dollar investment for me and helped motivate me to move forward with my own small business venture.
There are several other books and e-courses also available on her site. I hope to read them soon and take her photography class. She has quite a talent behind the lens as you will see in her gallery and blog posts. I recommend following her on Instagram as her photographs are lovely. The “Morning view” and “Evening view” shots provide simple reminders to stop and savor the moment from time to time.
