Flash forward to today, and my response will still be yes, size does matter. When assessing someone's character, I look at the size of their heart. That's what matters to me. Figuratively speaking, a small heart equals a stingy, selfish, uncaring, unlearned person. An extra large heart equals a generous, caring, loving person who puts other's needs before their own. But what about those people who are in between? Sometimes, I want to be selfish and tend to my needs. Other times I want to give until it hurts. That leaves me and countless others in the average-above average category.
Quite frankly, I like this category. I have the freedom to go above and beyond what is expected of me and retreat to my nutshell when I need it. How you view yourself will determine if size matters to you. If you feel like you could be doing more you have room for your heart to grow. If you feel you need to do less, you have to create room within your heart to allow for more self-care.
One thing is important to remember. The size of a person's heart is not to be judged, but to be appreciated and accepted. You have the power to change the size of your heart and encourage others to look into theirs. Do you know your heart size?
