What Really Matters

Categories: Creative Happy Life, Popular

Some of my most beautiful realisations come as tiny droplets of wisdom. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to share with you today so I just started typing. This is what emerged . . . .


I’ve been a bit frustrated that I haven’t been able to do as much as I like this week. After living with this fatigue for 4 years you would think I would have got used to it, but I haven’t. I still fight it.

I realised during the week that I need to take some of my own advice – I need to go gently and I need to rest. I need to stop feeling guilty about sleeping and resting; I need to let go of the notion that it’s lazy because it’s not. Instead I need to trust the wisdom of my body and listen to it.

At the end of the day the important thing is that I appreciate what I have – the small moments that make up the larger whole.

It doesn’t matter what I get done, how much money I have or whether I swept the floor. It really doesn’t matter. My happiness comes from making the most of what I do have, the small moments that surround me. That’s what really matters.


I’d love to know what’s running through your head at this very moment. Let’s turn it into a conversation. Share your thoughts in the comments below and let’s chat about what really matters.

With love, Lynda.


PS I’ve been working on an extra special crochet pattern that’s going to be released in the very first Soulful Yarn School package. You’ve still got time to purchase your membership over here.

    Thank you for sharing, Lynda! These days I often catch myself thinking “I have to be this/I have to have that/I have to work this way/I have to live there/I have to…. I have to…” in order to be happy, because it worked out for others, or at least it seems this way. But at the end of the day I always come back to the fact that I just can’t know what is the best thing for me and what will make me happy on a big scale. Looking back I realize that some very hard and challenging times turned out to be a blessing at the end of a day… So, my new philosophy is to accept things as they are, if I have a problem, I will try to solve it, if I can’t, well, that means this is what I need to experience now…

    Hi Alina,

    I’ve discovered some of my hardest times turned out to be blessings in disguise too. When we’re willing to open up and feel the pain we’re able to grow and move deeper into who we are. We discover more about ourselves.

    With love, Lynda.
