I am a professional writer, but I get paid to write about things that don’t really matter. Yes, I create information people need to do their jobs, and all work is worth doing well. But none of it is about what really matters in life. That’s what I feel I should ultimately be writing about, so that’s what I want to write about here.
So what matters?
I believe we are here to become better people–to learn and grow and heal, to reach out and help others, to add to collective wisdom, knowledge, and accomplishment. These are the goals that really matter. What also matters is all that brings us real joy, contentment, and pleasure along the way. These are the things I’d like to focus on in this space.
Hi Heather, I have nominated you for The Versatile Blogger Award…if you can’t accept no worries…but you have been such an inspiration to me with your body of work and had to include you! All good things to you sunshine:) http://bloomlisa.com/2014/07/24/the-versatile-blogger-award/

Hi Heather, I like your intro and am glad that you get to write about what matters to you. Blogs are great for expressing and exploring ourselves. Might we add love to your list of what matters? XD blessings, Brad
Thanks, Brad. Definitely–everything that matters comes down to love!
Hi Heather — glad to find your blog today! Recently I’ve focused on releasing clutter and stuck feelings, and am finding your advice in those areas helpful. I have added your site to a list of positive blogs I keep on my own blog. 🙂
Thank you, Meg 🙂 So glad you’ve found those posts helpful! I think letting the unhelpful stuff go is a big part of what we’re here to do 🙂 Look forward to visiting your blog as well.
