During the last six months, I have been doing a lot of reflection about why I chose to live more sustainably way back in September 2006.
I had also become lazy. Previously, I’d make things like my own beer, a little of my own food, and took pride in construction projects around the home. Over time I had slackened off and just paid for things to be done, because I was too lazy to do it myself.
Due to this consumerism, I knew it would be a very long time before my mortgage on my home would be paid off, if ever.
All of my actions have had a purpose, whether it was a large statement, or making our family feel good that we were actually doing something worthy of our time and effort.

It is also better to start on the road yourself, than have it forced upon you by circumstances, seen or unforeseen, in the future.
