Here’s a thought I’d like to share…
Our days are happier when we give people a bit of our heart instead of a piece of our mind.
We have to pause if we want to truly come from our hearts. Our minds are quick and agile and just love to feel important. Our minds secrete thoughts like our sweat glands secrete sweat — it’s just what they are built to do. As Jack Kornfield says, “My mind has no pride. It’ll think anything!”
We can’t believe everything we think and we certainly don’t need to say everything we think!
Our relationships are made stronger and our connections are deepened when we take the time and the energy to come from our hearts. We must be strong enough to be soft.
Wishing you the strength of softness,
