In the spirit of the season of resolve (I know, I know, IT’S FEBRUARY, JESS! GET WITH THE PROGRAM!), I’ve taken it upon myself to adopt a life mantra for this year and all the sweet years yet to come: Give ♥.
The simplicity speaks to me. In a deeper, more profound, soul-speaking sort of way than losing myself in a day-long, Jersey Shore marathon speaks to me. The sheer power of it speaks even louder. It shouts at me in all caps, even. Slightly obnoxious, but it let’s me know that IT’S HERE TO PARTY!! Consider it a simplicity-to-power mullet.
I mean, just think about it for a minute. There you are, at a crossroads in your life and whether you need it or need to put it out there, the giving of heart is going to pull you straight through. Lately, our little family unit has been on the receiving end of the giving of heart. In turn, our gracious hearts have been kneaded, baked, and are ready to serve, hot and fresh. I’d say that’s quite the epidemic to be spreading. Every effort to give of your heart inspires the hearts of those you’ve touched to give of theirs. This is quite the mind-blowing stuff that consumes me, guys. Anything cyclical that I can get my grubby little hands on, consider it groped, fondled, and left wanting more.
I’ve dabbled with the idea of discussing the spiritual/religious connection with living a mantra that “glorifies”, but I’d rather keep this in a simple place, as the mantra stands itself as such.
It leaves the opportunity then to ask a vital question to you guys, How do you give heart?
