What do you value? What does success mean to you? We all have an idea of what it means to have made it. Do you prioritize joy and peace? Does your home tell that story? I have visited friends’ and colleagues’ beautiful homes and got a chance to see what they truly value.
I have received tours of homes with the owner focusing on media rooms, backsplashes, and square footage. News cars parked in the driveway. Some friends think nothing of it and don’t bother to welcome you really or give a tour. To each, her own. Another colleague has given me a tour of their home and never mentioned a single feature of the house or whose room was whose. Each stop on the tour was a painting or photo he had received during his many travels. It was a different kind of tour. He was from a multicultural family and a scholar of culture himself. He genuinely loved his travel experiences with immersion and humility.
Two different kind of tours. Two different life focuses. We spend so much of our time building our lives. What story does your home tell? What kind of tour would you give? Where your treasure is, your heart will be.
