That's it. That's the message this week.
I genuinely mean it. You matter. You are significant.
This may seem like a cliché message, and it is. But I want you to take note of your reaction to this statement. What is your innate response when you read or hear those words?
If it is challenging for you to take this message seriously or if you find your response to hearing "you matter" is nonchalant or almost flippant, please keep reading.
It is impossible for us to know the impact of our choices. We can predict certain outcomes in life, but not many. Knowing that we can't predict how our choices will impact others, how can we possibly believe that we don't matter?
What you say to others matters. What you spend your money on matters. What you eat matters. What you read matters. What you post matters. What you respond and react to matters. Everything about your life matters.
Maybe you are at a point where it doesn't seem to matter to you, but it does matter to someone, even if you can't see it.
Everyone wants to feel like they matter to someone. That begins by believing that you, indeed, do matter.
Think of a time someone thanked you for something you didn't even remember doing. Keep that in mind the next time you doubt your significance.
What is one thing you do that seems meaningless? What meaning can be found in it?
“Whatever you do will be insignificant, but it is very important that you do it.” - Mahatma Gandhi
