Three Things Matter

“In the end, only three things matter: how much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you.”

  1. thank you so much for this.

  2. I love this, and needed this reminder!

  3. Similar to lines from one of my favorite poems ever.

    to live in this world

    you must be able
    to do three things
    to love what is mortal;
    to hold it

    against your bones knowing
    your own life depends on it;
    and, when the time comes to let it go,
    to let it go

    Mary Oliver, Blackwater woods

  4. I think it’s Jack Kornfield!

  5. The last comment from Elle is correct – this is from Jake Kornfield and commonly misattributed to Buddha.

  6. I needed this today. Thank you ❤️
