Tammy runs RowdyKittens and I’ve been a fan for a few years now. She believes in simplicity and minimalism and her downsizing story is very inspiring. Her writing is authentic and beautiful, and she’s also a very sweet gal.

GH: What do you wish there was less of in the world?
TS: I wish there was less war and more love, compassion and kindness.
GH: Any advice for aspiring writers or bloggers?
TS: Write and share your work with others. It’s really that simple. If you want to write, you have to make time for it. Don’t worry about subscriber counts or page views. You can help people by telling your story.
GH: How do you show yourself self-love?
TS: Through exercise, reading, and getting lots of sleep.
GH: How do you squash self-doubt?
TS: Though long photo walks. By getting out into the world, I remember how lucky I am. Most of the time, the things I doubt about myself aren’t that big of a deal. Being in the natural world helps me remember that.
GH: If you could have any super power, what would it be and why?
TS: Sometimes I wish I could fly. I live about 10 hours away from my parents and it would be a whole lot easier if I could fly directly to their house.
GH: What do you consider the most important event in your life so far?
TS: Leaving my day job and pursuing writing as a career. It has helped me re-frame how I see myself and the world too.
GH: What’s your favourite food memory?
TS: As a kid, I loved Lucky Charms. I would pour the whole box into a bowl and separate out the marsh-mellow flavors and eat them. I could only get away with that at my Grandma’s house.
GH: What is your next big challenge?
TS: Selling my book, You Can Buy Happiness (and It’s Cheap).
