There's a school of thought that says what we mind (give attention to) in life is what matters to us. That if our minds are truly set to something--whether a goal, dream, relationship, etc.--we take actions consistent with nurturing it. If not, then it doesn't matter. If only life were that simple. I know it's possible to think about something or someone who matters yet not give it/them the necessary or proper attention. It's not always intentional. Sometimes, it's the result of inability, procrastination, shifting priorities, a lack of time, energy, or resources. But I want to get better at minding the people and things in my life that matter. Otherwise, it's possible to miss opportunities--including opportunities to lend a helping hand, to say I'm thinking of you, I love you, until we meet again, etc. And that matters.

It's a common struggle, but so important to try.

Good post and makes me think because it is possible to miss important things that matter. Have to think of even the little things because they do matter.

Thanks for your comment, JT. I agree, and sometimes the little things matter the most.
