Living Life Well: What Really Matters?


Gems for living a life of wellness. Lessons I have learned, or am learning, during this crazy journey through life.

What is important in life, and what is not?  Determining WHAT COUNTS AND WHAT DOESN’T is important.

Being here counts.  Being kind and considerate counts.  Getting through each day without seriously offending anyone or hurting anyone counts.  Have the latest technology doesn’t.

There are some things in this life that are important and a whole lot of things that just aren’t.  It doesn’t take too much discrimination to work out which are which.  And there are a whole lot more things that don’t count, aren’t really important, to choose from.

I’m not saying we can’t have trivia in our lives–we can and it’s fine.  Just don’t go mistaking the trivia for what is really important. Having time for loved ones and friends is important, watching the latest reality show isn’t.  Repaying a debt is important, what brand of washing detergent you use isn’t.

You get the idea.  It’s like that famous book says:  “Don’t sweat the small stuff, and most of it’s small stuff.  Think about what you do that counts–and do more of it.

  1. choose reading in an unmade bed late into the morning while dust bunnies fly on sunbeams – those are some of the important things we can’t ever miss. and listening to your playlist! its like cassettes from my teenage years! The Cars!! My favourite was You Might Think – music videos just started coming to Malaysia then.
