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.
