Don’t waste your heart and mind on resentment. It only adds scar tissue to what time has tried to heal.
To myself, a dream to gain more opportunities.
To my mind, a thought to keep calm.
To my heart, a memory to keep warm.
To my hands, an action to show appreciation.
To my eyes, a sight to give hope.
To my lips, a kiss to drown out everything except that moment.
To my feet, a path to a higher truth.
To my back, strength to carry whatever burden I might have to carry
To my whole body, respect to never settle for anything less than all I deserve.
You’re only a FOOL in love if you let someone demolish your heart and batter your spirit rather than to find someone who cherishes your heart and nurtures your soul.
A heart given in desperation is closed off to logic.
True strength is not measured in physical forbearance; it is measured by how much your mind can hold, your heart can give, and your hands can act in selflessness. It’s not about how fast you rise from the ashes; but how much you have learned before you are reborn, and how long you can keep standing while remembering that no matter how many times you fall you can always rise again as long as while you’re down you take what you need from the hard times and leave what will always keep you from reaching your full potential.
When you get knocked down, pick yourself back up. When you’re faced with an uphill battle, keep climbing. When your life is turned upside down, rearrange it. When love seems lost, keep your heart open and never lose faith.
Embrace love and leave your heart open to possibilities.
Most of us at some time or other have experienced a love that has been so strong, so overwhelming that for better or worse we know that it will remain part of us for as long as we live. That love has usually been made stronger by the pain and heartbreak experienced as much if not more than the joy. If we are lucky, when we find the person we know we will love forever, it will be with the knowledge that they will love us forever with a fullness and purity to light the future.
In tribute to Whitney Houston, I would like to share the song “I Will Always Love You”, a song known for it’s strength in showing just how much a heart can hold and give.
Love is every bit as cerebral as it is emotional. The brain gives the actions, the heart provides the push.
When your heart and your mind are in agreement, you should listen.
