Who’s in Your Heart?

Where are You?! “You’ll be “here” in my heart–ALWAYS!”

Distance, disease, death, circumstance…may separate loved ones, but some bonds can never be broken!

Honestly, each time I sit here at my laptop about to compose what I hope to be a “light” (not too deep) post…with the goal of not “publicly” pouring my heart completely out on any given topic (cause let’s face it–You, my readers who “may” follow my writing, know more about me than I, You–which btw puts me in a vulnerable position of self-sacrifice and/or rejection)…It’s too difficult a task, I just cannot do it–NOT pour out my heart in my writing!

Thanks for reading, I know you have way better things to do than pay attention to my heart. Your heart beats for something. Your heart beats for someone.

Why do I care so much about all the topics I babble endlessly about??!! “Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.”

It’s tough when you care so much or too much and others may not whatsoever! Guess, I must have bigger fears than vulnerability, rejection, sacrifice. Maybe I live life like a crash-test dummy!(emphasis on dummy -lol:)

Maybe I fear silence. Or maybe my love is greater than my fear. (I hope so.)

When your love is deeper than your fear…seemingly impossible things happen. How deep is your love? What do you make happen? Is your love greater than your fear?

I like words. (I hope You like mine.) I hope You find them encouraging or helpful. Letters, words, posts go places we (physically) cannot. Places like one heart to another. Bridges leading from one heart and mind to another heart and mind. I believe in building bridges and not destroying them. A wrong word like a bomb can explode a bridge.

Can you build any bridges today? Is there someone out there you need to mend a bridge with? Have you thought about writing to the person? One little letter at a time, one little plank and before you know it…two hearts are closer. Two hearts beat as one. Two hearts pumping more than blood.

Partners and Caregivers need to stay close and connected. We need each other to make it! Reconciliation. I like that word. I prefer it over alienation.

To me, reconciliation is an action of compassion. A necessary step to Wellness on many levels! Who do you need to reconcile with?…your parent, your partner, your friend, your caregiver, your god?

Why carry someone in your heart if you

can hold them in your arms?!

You will feel so much better! Who doesn’t need a hug? Why don’t you give it a try…TODAY!

Please: Think about Reconciliation. How do you define it? Here’s a dictionary definition/s:

  • “to make (oneself or another) no longer opposed; cause to acquiesce in something unpleasant.”
  • “to become friendly with (someone) after estrangement or to re-establish friendly relations between (2 or more people)”
  • “to settle (a quarrel or difference)”
  • “to make (2 apparently conflicting things) compatible or consistent with each other.”

Last night and today and tomorrow–my heart is sentimental and nostalgic and missing/loving my loved ones…who do you miss? Who do you carry in your heart? (SORRY, didn’t mean to make you cry!) Didn’t want to go there, however…

“Many waters themselves are not able to extinguish love, nor can rivers wash it away.”

Stay Strong! Stay Well…Keep your heart beating, your love burning, your hands building…bridges!:)

Remember, “you’ll be in my heart”…True Love is inexhaustible…
