I love this. I absolutely love this. A great way to make lemonade, for sure.

Captain Dumbass said...

That's not something you do halfway. Good advice.

Terresa said...

Yes.

Lydia said...

Aw, bless your heart!

Elisabeth said...

How, Maggie? Love needs to take into consideration its opposite. The two most often go together, side by side yin and yang, black and white, cold and hot, love and hate.

sigh* that's really great.

Thank you for saying this. It's so true. It hurts like hell, but you just have to let it break wide open, and pour all about the floor... my God, the things you will learn about life, yourself, others...

my heart has a penchant for traipsing the grounds of love, so that means it also seems to be perpetually broken. But, I like to think of it as not broken. Just bruised... but because of this bruising, I have become the better human being.

i was reading this book in Borders last night, which i cannot for the life of me remember the title...and it was written by a woman with four children who was widowed young, and ended up 'gettin religion' and becoming a priest, and this was paraphrased from her book. i LOVED it the moment i read it.

SJ said...

I am really trying....

Miss Malorie said...

I also loved it the moment I read it... and more importantly, it freed me of the weight of my emotions (on a current love-issue) and I let everything out.

I feel like if I hadn't read that, I wouldn't have let it out the way I did. Thank you so much for posting it. It really touched me.

Often the best advice is the most difficult advice to follow.

Shaista (Lupus in Flight) said...

When our heart breaks, doesn't it always break wide open? Then we rush to patch it up any desperate way we can.. unless we are poets, then we skulk around it and milk it ;)

Maggie May said...

what this means to me is that when we suffer, we can see with greater enlightenment how much love is needed and give this love more easily and deeply to everyone around us.
like labor, then birth.
suffer, then love.

i have found this to be true, my whole life.
