Chapter 2, Page 10, Book 14



It is not the size of a man but the size of his heart that matters.
Evander Holyfield 

Getting to the heart of the matter….

This is a phrase that means to find or determine the most important or essential facts or meaning.

For example, it's important to get to the heart of the matter before we make any decisions . 

It is about listening to our own heart's longing, learning to trust what we hear, then building skills so that we can move forward.  It’s about all those things in our lives that truly matter to us.

At times we can lose sight of the heart of the matter.  Loosing sight of what really does matter in our lives.  We know there are certain things our heart has told us we need to do, but we seem to have hit against a brick wall.

You cannot let other people tell you who you are or what you want.  You have to decide that for yourself. Sometimes you just need to let your heart take over.

In February we often focus on matters of the heart.  One of the things I think that what really matters to me is that the people I love are happy and healthy.  They are my valentines.  They make my heart happy.

Happiness matters.  It’s been proven over and over how much good it does for our hearts.  I can’t emphasize the importance enough of taking time out of your busy day to do that one thing that will lift your spirit, cheer your heart and put a little spark in your day.

When it comes to matters of the heart, your heart matters. Take good care of it and it’ll take good care of you.

I like your last two lines, Ma, when it comes to matters of the heart, your heart matters. Take good care of it and it'll take good care of you. That is so true! I knew a heavy heart can weigh a person down literally in so many ways, emotionally, physically, mentally, etc. A cheerful happy heart, of course, would have the opposite effect; one we need to strive for daily!
