Some things don’t matter much. Like the color of a house. How big is that in the overall scheme of life? But lifting a person’s heart–now, that matters.

Courage is a heart word. The root of the word courage is cor—the Latin word for heart. In one of its earliest forms, the word courage meant ‘To speak one’s mind by telling all one’s heart.’ Over time, this definition has changed, and today, we typically associate courage with heroic and brave deeds. But in my opinion, this definition fails to recognize the inner strength and level of commitment required for us to actually speak honestly and openly about who we are and about our experiences—good and bad. Speaking from our hearts is what I think of as ‘ordinary courage. – Brene Brown

dear universe, may you remind me that there is a
purpose for this pain of mine.
because there is a way to the light,
and i am finding myself closer and closer to it
with every breath.
may you remind me to
let my journey guide others.
let my fight inspire others.
let my story be told
and let my heart stay full.
– so worth loving

You can’t stop your heart from loving, really — it’s like standing out there in the ocean yelling at the waves to stop. – Sue Monk Kidd
