What Matters Most

“The best portion of your life will be the small, nameless moments you spend smiling with someone who matters to you.”

This quote popped up on my screen yesterday and I found myself nodding in agreement.

2014 was a year filled with change and much of the time I felt unsettled. I spent so much time searching for the security I once had that I forgot to pay attention to those small, nameless moments.

As I enter 2015 with a few more things than I had last year – a new job, a great group of friends in this still new city, I was suddenly reminded of what I had been taking for granted all that time.

I forgot about the daily phone calls from my mom telling me everything was going to be okay.

I forgot about the nights my boyfriend took me out for drinks to celebrate some small success that hardly mattered to the outside world.

I forgot about the hopeful messages and comments left right here on this blog as I was struggling to find my place.

I forgot to say thank you. Even if we haven’t met face-to-face, you being here means a lot. It has kept me going, it has made me smile, and it matters.
