But what about your ‘stuff’. What among your stuff wouldn’t you sell, and why? Want to bet 100% of those things have sentimental value attached to your family or closest friends?
The spinning wheel that belonged to your great grandmother, as well as the photo showing it in the corner of your grandmother’s first home.The quilt your aunt made for your father when he returned from the war. The little sewing kit you remember your mother bringing out whenever a button needed to be sewn back on. The painting your grandfather did. The colorful rocks you collected on the rafting trip with your best friends.
It is the sentiment, the emotional connection to things and people that you don’t want to sell.
What are you doing to continue to create that sort of wealth in your life?
I love this line from the song ‘The Last Word’ by Mary Chapin-Carpenter.
What it really seems to say is that you see what you want to see;
infatuated love, the possibility of wealth, the dreams of fame, and
seeing those things blind you to seeing the emotional desperation,
the selfish greed, or the empty loneliness that might come along with
Desire often begets blindness. Where are your blind spots?
