[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] What actually matters to you?

The question is, what actually matters to you? Does beauty matter? Does
comfort matter? Does stability have great meaning for you, or the capacity
to travel the world? If you say it matters to you, then it matters.

Danielle La Porte

As I was reading this morning - "what actually matters to me?" I had to
take a pause. I paused to think about it and in my thinking I thought isn't
this something that I ought to know easily? But if I am not paying
attention I will have to sit and ponder about it

Do the exercise with an open mind and willing spirit. It really is an eye
opener! What is it that is super important to you? Is it working? Is it
bringing you joy? Is it healthy for your mind, body and spirit? Is it
harmless to you and the people around you?

What matters to me?

My family

My health

Being a demonstration of what is possible




Real people (as opposed to fake ones)



Travelling the world

Arsenal Football Club

Sharing lessons on the journey

Women and youth empowerment

Chocolate with peanuts and sometimes salt


A Loving, abundant and honest relationship

just to name a few......

What actually matters to you?
