How would you fill in that blank in the title of today’s post?
To me ….
… because it lifts my heart, no matter what.
Here are some other matters that mattered enough to me, yesterday, that I spied them with my little eye and snapped them with my little iPhone:
Before I started this blog back in 2013, I had no idea that what I see, matters.
One more matter, from my iPhone:
What is the matter with me, that I would take a photo of a wastepaper basket in my office? How could THAT possibly matter to you or to anybody else ?
Matter of fact, that is no ordinary wastepaper basket. Rather, it’s one of the magic wastepaper baskets that matter-ialize whenever I do one of my therapy groups. At the end of each therapy group, I invite people who matter (and who often feel like they do NOT matter) to use the magic waste paper basket, like so:
If you throw something away in the magic wastepaper basket, it might disappear! And even if it DOES come back, it comes back smaller and less powerful.
I guess that matters to some people, because they throw away things like
- grudges, and
What disposable matters might you throw away in that magic waste paper basket, right now?
The heart of the matter for me, here and now, is this: My heart seems to matter more than usual, these days, to me and to other people, too.
Does it matter to anybody that I wish my heart didn’t matter quite so much to so many heart doctors?
I matter-of-factly need to end this post earlier today than I usually do on a Friday. Why? Because there’s an 8 AM presentation at the hospital where I work, which might include some matters about my therapy groups. No matter what, the presentation is about improving patient care, which really, really matters.
One more thought that matters to me, in this mattering moment:
A doctor who matters a great deal to me told me, two days ago, that I’ll probably never feel as good and healthy as I used to. Even if that’s true, even if I have a cardiac condition that increasingly slows me down…..
I STILL MATTER, as much as ever.
What matters most to you, in today’s post?
It matters to me to thank everybody who mattered in my creating this post today and it matters to me — especially! — to thank you, who matters a great a deal.
