Monday Moment: Open-hearted

Hafiz_Sun Earth Love quote w logo

We all know how it feels to love someone. It doesn’t matter the “kind” of love it is, or was.  You know that love makes you feel like a better version of yourself. It’s expansive; it reaches out. It feels like it fills in pieces you didn’t know were missing (because they weren’t — topic for another day). It makes you feel stronger, and makes the world seem bigger. It makes you feel limitless.

That’s the big love — the say-it-out-loud kind of love that we can clearly connect to another person. But what if it were possible to hold little pieces of that feeling for other people, too? Everyone has, or had, someone who loves them. Someone who feels or felt about them exactly as you feel about the people you hold closest to your heart.

What if you could see that love in everyone?

Taking this perspective requires an internal shift, and may be one you can only hold for a second or two. But, whoa, what a second or two that would be. For just a moment, your heart might be open enough to light a little piece of the sky — and as you know from experience, a little piece of you, too.
