As I was looking at how to transform my home I found this quote ‘Your stuff is not your legacy’ and posted it on our Instagram page. This is a good reminder for not getting too attached to items and not to see them as my identity. All my legacy is internal, my principles and how I make people feel.
Like the famous quote by Maya Angelou, ‘I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.’ Along with this quote and learning from the book ‘7 Habits of Highly Effective People’ my real priority in life should be based on nurturing my relationships as well as my relationship with myself. When I do purchase stuff I make sure it’s something that I love, an investment and very considered. I ensure that I fulfil the responsibility to myself to not overload myself with too much stuff.
