What is important, what really matters? This is something that we all ask on some deeper level.The answer to which invariably comes when that which is important and really matters most has either gone from our lives or changed in some way.
When we think we may have lost something forever or when we do, we can come to realise the meaning and importance of what really matters. It can sometimes take a loss of this kind for us to realise the importance of something or someone in our lives, but it doesn’t have to.
What really matters and is important is slightly different for us all but one thing that can be guaranteed is that we all already have many of these things existing within our lives right now. Our health, the people in life that we love, the moments we have now, it is these gifts in life that really are precious and priceless.
Within our society today there is so much pressure to always be chasing something more and to have something better, as though we somehow require this or need it to be enough, but where does it stop?
Taking time everyday in our lives to really appreciate all we already have is something I now consider to be vital. The moments that are here right now are the most precious of all, the loved ones that are here, the opportunities we have to give and make a difference, this is what really matters.
We will all experience loss at some level in our lives, but we don’t need to have this experience to realise how precious the moments we have right now are.
All gifts exist here in the present moment, when we recognise each and everyone of them our lives are blissful everyday, there is no room for any depression or anxiety in this type of existence. Take a look around you today and notice all you already are and all you already have, this is what really matters.
With much peace and love,
