Large Life, Small Space: Size is a Matter of Perspective
After living in a 90-square-foot studio for five years, I remember the first night in my “enormous” 490 square foot apartment I bought. I was sleeping on a fold-out couch the previous tenant left.
I had unpacked all 34 boxes and was exhausted, but excited at the prospect of waking up, ready for the next stage of my journey.
The couch wasn’t comfortable, but I didn’t care. There were no blinds on the kitchen windows and the light from the other buildings and the moon shining above was enough to see around my new home.
Lying there, I couldn’t help but smile. At that moment I thought of last scene from the movie “Working Girl” when Melanie Griffith, having just arrived at her new office, looks around, appreciating not just the space, but what it took to get there.
Gazing at my new view, I understood exactly how she felt.
You might remember Felice’s viral video of her former 90 square foot space. Felice is a professional organizer and also has a new book, “90 Lessons For Living Large in 90 Square Feet (or More)”
