THE THINGS THAT MATTER THE MOST
“Things which matter most must never be at the mercy of things which matter least.”
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
We often use the phrase 'life is too short', without completely comprehending the meaning of it. But is life really short? Instead of thinking of life in terms of years, let’s visualize it in moments. From the age of three to ten, there are exactly 8 times that you have been mesmerized by the Christmas spirit and probably expected Santa to show up. When you look at life in terms of moments, it reminds you of how short it really is. Take a look at your life, and see which things you focus most of your attention on. Then think about the things that really matter to you. Do those two lists align?
The things that really matter to you should be yourself and your family. By family I mean the few people in your life who you really care about you. Definition of one’s family can differ from individual to individual. Your family's and your health and wellbeing is the only thing that really matters in the end. A lot of times we allow less important things in our life to dictate our state of mind, disturb our peace and most importantly get in the way of things that really matter.
Stop whatever it is you are doing right now. Make yourself a cup of coffee, go out for a walk and really ask yourself this question:
Are you letting things that matter the least get in the way of things that matter the most?
