Returning to what matters

Over the weekend, I was drawn back to John O’Donohue’s poetry.

He speaks of things that matter. Things below the shiny surfaces that attract our attention.

And his words connect profoundly to my soul.

They remind me of what is important and frame that seeing in a way that allows me to take action, not just think, ‘How nice’…

May I live this day

Compassionate of heart,
Clear in word,
Gracious in awareness,
Courageous in thought,
Generous in love.

+ John O’Donohue, excerpt from ‘For Matins’, from Benedictus: A Book of Blessings’, Bantam Press, 2007

This week, may we be open to returning to what matters. And doing something about it.

Pause. See differently. Re-story 🌿
