Richie Sambora best know for his richly melodious riffs with Bon Jovi, and his volatile relationship with Heather Locklear. I personally like some of his solo releases. Stranger in this Town and Undiscovered Soul.
How often do we forget – All That Really Matters, this track off Sambora’s Undiscovered Soul is something we should start our day’s with.
I know over the last year that I certainly lost touch with that. How often do we tell those around us, what matters. How often do we think about All That Really Matters?
When I look at you
there comes a time in someone’s life
when you find things that matter
and every time we touch the love runs deep
we realize it’s our to keep and that’s all that really matters.
It’s ours to keep, but when we become unfocused, we loose what really should run deep. What should make us smile when our feet hit the floor in the morning? Rushing to meet deadlines, meetings, answer email or trying to cut the guy off in front of us? Or is it what surrounds you all the time, your family, your friends, compassion and love? It should be the latter, but we get so lost with in the confines of our mind that we overlook those simple things that really matter.
When we loose focus of what really matters, we loose ourselves and our loved one’s can be swept away in that fall out – and pretty quickly ta’boot. Taking the time to show people what really matters can put that extra spring in your step on a daily basis as well as have a pay it forward action behind the scenes.
It doesn’t take long, it should not consume your day trying to figure it out. Smile at someone and say thank you for being in my life, or tell someone they are beautiful, take 5 minutes to sit and listen to someone’s story that you otherwise wouldn’t have time too. Comment back, but don’t monopolize the conversation with a story of your own, let them know they have been heard.
You’ll always be my sweet addiction
in this life my saving grace
you’re all that really matters
you know it’s true
ain’t no me without you.
And when we turns to dust
and we fly away
there’ll be a light stil burning bright
and that’s all that really matters
