What Matters to YOU?

There are a lot of changes happening in my life right now, and this is a question I'm asking myself a lot:

What matters to me?

I think we don't ask that question enough. It's super common for us to put our attention on everyone else - what matters to them and their needs, rather than what matters to YOU!

I'm finding it more and more true that my life, business, and relationships work best when I'm true to myself.

Life, business, and relationships work best when you are true to yourself!

And being true to yourself requires that you know yourself - that you can answer the question -
What matters to me?

For me, what matters is Love, Generosity, and Empowerment!


Being Love - Loving myself - Loving others exactly as they are and exactly as they are not.


Giving because I desire to give, and for no other reason. Being grateful that I have so much to give!


Supporting others to see their own power - their own gifts - and to experience gratitude for ALL that is!

This is my focus and the context for my life at this moment.

It helps in the midst of so much change and adjustment to remember it's not all about me - even as it is all about what matters to me!

So, what matters to you?

Honestly, exploring this question is the very best thing you can do for yourself and those who love and care about. Not until we are our highest and best selves can we truly be all we desire to be for others.

Take some time to explore, and share it here - I'd love to share in your discoveries!

    Thank you for this post Dori. I agree that this is one of the most important questions to ask ourselves. As I go within and really listen for what matters most to me, I hear HOPE. Hope for healing and wholeness, hope that I can be more and create more love and beauty within myself and in the world around me. LOVE. Love for myself, love for those closest to me and for everyone in the world, love for the world in which I live. JOY. Joy in my life as it is now, and joy in the life I am constantly creating. Bringing joy to the world and sharing joy with others. Finding more and more ways to see Hope, Love, and Joy, and more ways to feel Hope, Love, and Joy in myself. KNOWING. Knowing that I create my own reality and that I can change the reality I am living by my thoughts and the stories that I tell myself every day. This is what is most important to me.

      This is beautiful Leigh! I, of course, love the notion of LOVE – and I also love the JOY – “you in life as it is now.”

      That really is what we are being called to do in all moments – find JOY now, and when it’s not obviously present, remembering that we can use the discernment of our feelings to create a new experience – and find JOY in that!

      Thank you for sharing, and for being Hope, Love, Joy & Knowing! XOXO Dori
