We live a rushed existence. We’re told to act our age, be mature, go to college, get a job, get married and have kids. Somehow in the midst of the big things, we have to weave in what matters to us. It may seem insignificant, but if it matters to you, let it matter.
This line comes from a Johnnyswim song “Let It Matter.” It emphasizes the idea that no matter how badly you are hurting, it’s not in vain. It matters. A simple, yet lovely reminder.
We don’t take enough time to appreciate the small things. Sometimes it has to matter, momentarily before we can grow from it. In moments of hardship, we tell people to pick yourself up, dust off and carry on. But sometimes, that’s not enough. We need to process, grieve, unpack and understand. Only then, can we actually find peace.
