    What really matters to me is health and wellness of body, mind, and spirit. I want that to matter to everyone and to want to pursue a life of health, vitality, abundance. It matters to me the clean food I eat and the scenery I have before me and the choices I need to make everyday that fulfill my purpose. God matters to me and my relationship to Him and with Him.

    I did a values assessment recently. Highly recommended. Here are my values: Family, Wisdom, Health, Grace, Making a Difference. Intuition. Gratefulness is intermingled in each one, I feel.

        I googled values assessment. The one I did had a list of values A-Z. Then you had to group them into your top 5

            Here is the site with the list

            https://scottjeffrey.com/core-values-list/

            You take this group and put them into 5 categories. Then you pick the best value from each group and voila there are your values. Enjoy!

    Love in action. Where is the love? I get sick to my stomach when I hear of the billions of dollars made during this pandemic and see the suffering that is still going on. India especially needs help. I would personally like to help by donating and not sure which site is safe. My few dollars won’t make a difference but I would like to do my share. I will find a way. What about those who made billions manufacturing the vaccine and those who refuse to allow it to be manufactured in India? Now that the alarm is beginning to sound I hope that it reaches India before it is wiped off the planet. Love is a verb not a noun. So what matters to me? Something being done for those who are out of oxygen and don’t have to fight over who’s next to bury their kin at crematories when as they wait their turn. When I heard this and then heard that manufacturers are not allowing production of the vaccine to be made in India because of control, power and profit concerns. I nearly lost my mind. Billions of dollars made during the pandemic by these manufacturers. Why is it not allowed to be made there? It’s not profitable? What does the WHO, UN, NATO or whoever can shout the loudest say about this? I am not political so don’t get me wrong. I just can’t help but feel that more can be done and its not being done at the scale that needs to be done. It is now in the news but look at how long this has been escalating and no one knew until now. We watched the fires burn in California. We watched the children in cages at the border. We saw and still see the effects of the pandemic on our soil (no matter what country you are from) and it’s starting to turn the corner. That’s great, but India takes the cake as far as devastation on a massive scale is concerned. I can’t fathom what it must be like for those living there right now. Let alone those who are dying…..Sorry if I’m off center. I just can’t wrap my head around this.

      Your can also research the local diaspora groups ( meaning the ethnic groups ) in your area and work through them…..because they have established direct channels to those in need and are much more efficient at delivery and distribution then the “official” aid systems because of direct local knowledge , communications etc etc

      It is a deep tragedy unfolding in India. You asked how you might help. I hope I am not overstepping here, but I think we can not go wrong by helping Unicef. Unicef was started by a survivor of the Holocaust… something I only just recently learned. It has stood the test of time, and reaches globally. They are involved in the COVAX project. You can find out more here: https://www.unicef.org/supply/covax-ensuring-global-equitable-access-covid-19-vaccines

      Secondly, quite by accident some years ago I found a non-profit organization that reviews the practices of all larger non-profit charities… a sort of “oversight” organization. You can look up any charity you wish to check on, or you can look up their list of four star charities, etc. And from that find out about the organizations transparency rating and such. You can find them here: https://www.charitynavigator.org/

      You have a BIG HEART, Toni. It is a privilege knowing you.

        Thank you Holly for those links. I checked out some of the charities I donate to … interesting this website only scored a 59/100….

          Yes, the Charity Navigator is perhaps not perfect. I personally, think Unicef would score higher also, but perhaps these organizations did not respond or respond quickly enough… who knows? It is still enough to assure me that I’m not giving money to a scam, and it helps me to find charities I didn’t know about. Enjoy!

    such a good question. what REALLY matters to me is that my closest relationships are at peace and my family is – struggling with the right word – not untroubled, because our troubles sometimes help us figure out who we are, but that my family feels secure that they have what they need to overcome their troubles and challenges. It matters to me that I feel safe. not in the – I won’t take a risk – kind of safe, but the safe that tells me that if I fail, I won’t have to worry where I’ll put my head at night and who will remind me that I’m worth it.

    What. Really matters? Having gratefulness for everything I have and the people in my life. To be appreciative of the fact that I am alive to be able to experience living, to be thankful for what Mother Nature has to offer me and her healing powers.

    Having the outsides match the insides. Being who I am in the world, without artifice. Decluttering the path into my psyche from my soul so as to express myself from there. With such footing everything else becomes possible.
