A Hole in My Heart
~take a comment to heart
~feeling a heart connection
~a bleeding heart
~after my own heart
~absence makes the heart grow fonder
~have a change of heart
~eat your heart out
~a heart of stone; a heart of gold
~coming from the heart
With the problem resting in my heart, I begin to see it as an extension of myself, and then I am able to focus on creating compassion for the problem or person. Sometimes I am able to see and understand the reason for whatever happened even if it's some not-so-great behavior on their part. I'm able to objectively see their reasoning even if it resulted in hurting me. I still don’t have to be thrilled about it but I quit being upset and traumatized. The second thing that happens is that I am able to get space from the issue….it’s put into perspective and that usually lessens its importance in my full and wonderful life. Nothing has happened to change the facts, but I’m calmer and happier. What’s better than that?
This Valentine’s Day, when you look around and see this symbol of love everywhere, begin to think of your heart as a more powerful tool. The event I’ve shared is just one tiny example of our hearts being at the core of how we think and feel. All the love and positive feelings created by my heart spread throughout my being, and I am made better for it.
