Sorry, I couldn’t think of a title for this post…
I was in one of those moods where you are confused, sad and cranky (all at once). I shared it with a friend and he had this quote to share with me.I was deeply humbled by it and well, forced to change my stand about some things… don’t ask!!!
“To love at all is to be vulnerable…Love anything and your heart will certainly be wrung and possibly be broken. If you want to be sure of keeping it intact, you must give your heart to no one – not even to a pet. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements.
Lock it up safely in the casket or the coffin of your selfishness. But, in that casket – safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, unredeemable. The only
place outside heaven where you can be safe from all the dangers and
perturbations of love is hell.” – C.S. LEWIS
He had this line of his to add: “keep in mind the big picture/story already written before you appeared on the scene; ink’s long dry and there’s no known eraser” – xxx
Well, I was really blessed and couldn’t resist the urge to share it with you…Take care!
