The Power of a Full Heart
Day by day, we encounter people, situations, or things that can annoy us. It is just part of life. Would they were all as perfect as thee and me! ~!
Life is full of annoyance. Aggravations. Moments where life doesn’t go as we’d like. It doesn’t matter who you are, what you do, or where you live, stuff happens.
What is of importance or value, to me, is how we recover from those moments of annoyance, disappointment, and let down.
I’m not saying to not register what has happened. We need to remember that this might be an ‘empty cupboard’ for us so we don’t go back and disappoint ourselves or strain that relationship. We need to ask ourselves if we are asking too much or asking for more than can be delivered? We need to ask ourselves how we want to respond after that first moment of disappointment and annoyance.
There are many ways to handle disappointment. I prefer to remember the bruise but know I have healed. I prefer to acknowledge that I have learned where to go and where to avoid. I prefer to see that I have many ways of approaching and dealing with situations. I prefer to see my possibilities rather than what has disappointed me.
I feel that too often we see our lives through a filter of lack. When we see our lives through a filter of abundance, it becomes very interesting to see what we really do need, rather than want without understanding. When we come to life with a full heart, we see that which we want to add to it, rather than wanting to grab at anything to fill the void. The power of a full heart is that we see what we have, and what we care to add to that. The power of a full heart is it pushes the unhappiness away from our memories. The power of a full heart is it allows us to heal, to recover, and to learn. The power of a full heart is with understanding can come forgiveness, even without forgetting.
The power of a full heart is that we can move forward through life choosing that which serves us, releasing that which doesn’t, and allowing others to fall by the side when needed. The power of a full heart is we can be our best.
