I read one time that being human is a courageous act. That a life well lived is full of tragedy and triumph. And it is during these times of loss and sorrow that we most need to keep our heart open, despite wanting so much to keep it closed.
There will be difficult days. There will be days when we want to close up inside ourselves. It’s during these turbulent times that we need to be open to the possibility that life is happening for us, not to us. That the very thing that is causing us so much pain, may actually be what moves us forward to our higher self.
Be gentle with yourself. One day you will look back and be amazed at how far you’ve come, that you pulled yourself up out of the ashes and began again—all because you chose to open your heart to the possibilities, taking one courageous step after another.
