Has your heart every felt so full you thought it would burst from the pressure? Perhaps you were thinking of a loved one - a child or parent, cherished friend, or a beloved pet. Maybe you reached a point in life where all arrows were pointing in the right direction - the state of your family, friends, or work being better than you could have ever imagined. You were feeling a sense of deep connection and alignment. A sense of being small, but at the same time connected to others and to the infinite, dare I say spiritual realm of endless possibilities. This is the power of connection and the world needs more of this.
Connection requires vulnerability - the courage to share your true self with no guarantees how this sharing will be received. Applause? Contempt? Perhaps worst of all, utter disregard?
When was the last time your heart felt so full? Please share. I'll go first…
Maybe it was the Shake Shack, the fact that my back was feeling better, or the wonderful weekend spent doing ordinary things with my family. Maybe it was some combination of the above. That Spring evening as I tucked in my son and saw the peaceful smile on his face, felt the toastiness of the sheets, a feeling of overwhelming connection and love welled up inside my heart. Life doesn’t get much better than this.
