"Join me on my hunt for new ways to see beauty and to express feeling ... to keep life simple, to notice the little things and to love it all. "

32. A broken heart keeps on beating...

I know how much a broken heart hurts while it just keeps on beating.
Even now the scar feels so cruel.
But I’ve heard that light passes most easily through shattered things,
so I guess that’s why a broken heart can leave us just that little bit more enlightened.
Maybe that's why we feel compelled to shield the hearts of our babies
but if we lock them away how will their love ever shine through again?

31. It's just not your turn....

When I told her about my longings. She explained,
“It’s just not your turn at the moment, one day your turn will come.”

And suddenly my sadness was gone and my yearning was eased. That‘s when I knew that I must throw myself into loving my life, right now, as it is today, because when my turn did come along I wanted to be ready. I even felt happy for all the others to have their turn.

30. The stuff heros do...

I understand that the stuff heros do is tough and everything.
But mostly it’s the everyday things
that take the most courage.
Going into the world day after day

forgiving and loving all over again and again and again.
