Tell Your Story

“Your possessions tell your story.”

—Pat Cleveland

Some day when I’m gone, my family can come to my house and learn my story from going through my possessions. Even though I have a house and many valued possessions now, a hundred years from now all that will be left of me (my legacy) are stories about me, my posts on the internet, my photography, my art I have drawn, art that’s hanging on my walls now, and some other little things. It depends what my relatives choose to keep.

All that remains from relatives who lived 100 years ago is some journals, letters, and photos. No furniture, no vases, no artwork!

What do you want to be left of you after you pass on?
