What matters most

Most everything we concern ourselves with, really doesn’t matter… and what matters most, we least concern ourselves with. Do your best to concern yourself with what really matters. If you don’t know what that is, ask and feel your heart. Choosing to feel with my heart what really matters.

What matters the most…

There are days when my thoughts carry me to places that are just not that important.  I think about how I am going to look when I go out.  I wonder if I should be in a relationship or just continue to date around.  I think about the things I have missed out on because of my choices.  I think too much about my circumstances.  I don’t think enough about my circumstances.  I think, I don’t think.

But what is really important?  What really matter in the big scope of things?  When it comes right down to it, it is not the outfit, my boyfriend, my job, or my car.  It is not where I live, or what I sit on.  It is not even my family or my friends.  What’s really important?  What really matters?  The most important thing is how I treat each person, no matter how briefly, that comes into my life.

People are placed into my life for a reason, a season, and a purpose.  And while they are in my life, it is my obligation to insure that I cause no harm to them.  My hope is that I can be an encouragement, a help, show some kindness, lend a helping hand or be a listening ear.  But, if I can’t do that, then at least don’t let me cause harm.  Because that is what matters…

Realizing that all the crap that I give a great deal of thought about really does not matter, because it will all fade away, and no one, not even me, will remember it. No one will care about the outfit I wore to the party or the necklace that went with that dress.  No one will remember the furniture that was in my house.  If I don’t pass down the recipe for my low country boil, people will forget.  The car that I drive will not be important.  None of it will be.  The only thing that will matter…The only thing that will be remembered is how I treated others.

So instead of leading with my head, I am going to follow my heart.  If I get my thoughts out of the equation, then I my vision becomes clearer.  Then I see what matters the most.  When I stop over analyzing everything, and go with the flow, then I run the chance of seeing the whole picture, and that is what really matters.  When I let my heart lead the way, it allows me to treat those around me with compassion, kindness, love, joy.  My heart finds the laughter and creates the memories…

My heart always knows what is best,, what is right, and what is just, and I will trust it. So I am taking a journey with my heart today and discovering what is really important…
