Sense of self
“In fast moving world it’s easy to lose touch with oneself. A room of one’s own and a sense of self are interconnected. We need a place to dream in peace, for solitude and creative thought. Make one place – just a corner will do – where you can surround yourself with the things that have meaning for you, that give you a sense of self. A place to be who you are rather than the person you feel you ought to be. Think about the items you choose to have around you so that they really are the ones you care about. Set time aside to lose yourself in the things that inspire you.”
