To release your heart, you simply reverse the process which locked it up.
First you begin to listen for messages from your heart: messages you may have been ignoring since childhood.
Next you must take the daring, risky step of expressing your heart in the outside world. It’s lucky this process is so simple, because it’s also terrifying.
As you learn to live by heart, every choice you make will become another way of telling your story.
It will chart you a life’s journey as unique and authentic as your fingerprint; send you out, full of hope and breathtaking exhilaration, onto paths you never thought you could travel. It is the way you were meant to exist.
If you stop to listen, you’ll realize that your heart has been telling you so all along. (Martha Beck)
Life is happy a good bit of the time and joy comes with enough regularly to know it is real. Sometimes I stumble and at other times my way is clouded or rough. No matter what comes, I am grateful for every day. Each one is another chance to open my heart and use well the hours that have been gifted to me.
Life is not the way it’s supposed to be.
It’s the way it is.
The way you deal with it is what makes the difference.
