Keys to an Open Heart

“Have enough courage to trust love one more time and always one more time.” – Maya Angelou

It’s been a couple of weeks since my last post, life got in the way, but I thought it would only be appropriate to wrap up “Open Heart Season” to make room for the next season.

Throughout the month of October I opened up about a few things regarding my bouts with depression, my experiences as a child dealing with an alcoholic father, and how it was always difficult for me to have an open heart.

I decided to open up this post with a quote from Maya Angelou. She’s always been someone that I admired because of her spirit and determination to rise above her circumstances.

She did not have an easy life. As a matter of fact she suffered a very traumatic childhood which included a rape incident that left her in complete and total silence for five years. For her to still find the strength to say, “have enough courage to trust love one more time and always one more time” that is truly inspiring.

It got me to thinking about how this simple little one line has so much truth and wisdom embedded in every word.

Why have an Open Heart?

Let’s talk about it. If my life experiences have taught me one thing it is that you can never live life to the fullest if you are always living in fear. . . .
