It’s been 10 years since my now-ex husband announced with flat, dead certainty that he didn’t want to be married to me any longer – that our marriage was “done,” as if we were a pie baking in the oven. Done.
Thought for the day: THIS is how you live your life. Both hands in and messy.
The Gift of a Wound That Never Heals
I discovered that if I’m strong enough to be weak enough, I’m given a wound that never heals. It’s this gift that keeps my heart open. I discovered that joy – real joy that doesn’t deny what’s difficult in our lives – is a choice. Joy finds us when we’re willing to acknowledge that we belong – to ourselves; to another; to the world; to the mystery that is so much larger than ourselves.
Like a Pebble in a Pond
Don't question whether or not you make an impact on the world. Know that you do. Just like the pebble in the pond.
