On Broken Hearts

“Well,” the Goddess said,
“your heart didn’t heal straight the last time it broke.
So we’ll break it again and reset it so it heals straight this time.”
– Jane Yolen
 
 
 
 
 

*Maybe if we looked at it this way,
a broken heart wouldn’t seem insurmountable.

  1. Dear survivors and well-wishers,

    I do not have a broken heart.

    I have a full, happy heart. ;)

    I posted this quote for those who hesitate to get back out there.

    Trust me.

    Get out there.

    Jesse

  2. Well said!

  3. Amen Jesse!!

    I love the posts you write. They always make me stop and think and reflect on where I am and where I have been.

    We keep living by loving, learning, and giving. I pray I am wiser about how I give and love now–but I definitely will not allow my life with my ex-N to keep me from loving, giving, and LIVING!

    I am wishing a cup that overflows with joy and love!

    Warm hugs,
    Lynn

  4. Lynn,

    I wish the same kind of cup for you and yours.

    Here’s to continued loving, learning and giving.
