Have you ever really thought about your heart? Tiny, vulnerable organ that you must have to live. No kidney – no death. Kidney missing? No problem, still alive. No brain, still alive. But heart stops? Dead. Dead, dead, dead.
Look where it’s located! – encased within a bone envelope. A skeleton frame, reminiscent of the briars around Sleeping Beauty’s tower, keeps it from being crushed or damaged.
And yet, look at the heart(felt) adjectives we use: heartless, cold-hearted, tender-hearted, and broken-hearted. And isn’t that how it feels? Broken.
But it’s not really broken, is it? Because, if it was,I’d be dead. And, if I’m not dead, it can’t be broken….
And so….at the end of the day……I’ve just got to step out. Be willing to be vulnerable, and trust that I will not be hurt.
