Things that DON'T matter

Up at the top of this blog it says “Things that matter.” <<see note below>> I guess I like to think that a lot of what I think about & talk about & write about & DO, “matters.”

Maybe some of it even does. Can’t say for sure. Probably not for me to say.

Today I am musing on things that maybe don’t matter.

I’ve been pretty much reeling lately from a succession of events & challenges & shocks & stress & crises & disasters, for the past few weeks.

I feel a little overwhelmed.

Well, a lot overwhelmed, actually.

So I thought I’d make a list of things that don’t matter.


On second thought, maybe I should just leave that up to the reader to figure out for her or himself.

Maybe we could all just reflect for a bit on what really-really-really doesn’t matter in this life.

& then stop focusing on & obsessing over & spending (wasting?) our time, on that kind of stuff.

Whatever it is that we determine doesn't matter to be.

That’s all.

Let’s just leave it there, shall we?


‘Quote of the day’ with this post: “…the world sometimes feels like the waiting room of the emergency ward and that we who are more or less OK for now need to take the tenderest possible care of the more wounded people in the waiting room, until the healer comes. You sit with people, she said, you bring them juice and graham crackers.” – from Traveling Mercies – Some Thoughts on Faith, by Anne Lamott
