“We overvalue nonessentials like a nicer car or house, or even intangibles like the number of our followers on Twitter or the way we look in our Facebook photos. As a result, we neglect activities that are truly essential, like spending time with our loved ones, or nurturing our spirit, or taking care of our health.“Greg McKeown
🌿I admit that I must create healthy habits and a gratitude mindset to combat overconsumption. When I learn to cherish and value what I own. I learn the balance of just enough and not holding onto items based on guilt or fear of letting go.
