“And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: it is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.”
Antoine de Saint Exupery
I think I have used this quote sometime ago. It fits my mood today however. A friend and colleague died on Fri. Certainly by surprise for me. I am so aware that my heart feels sad. And also aware that my sadness doesn’t really show. But inside it all comes together and just wants me to be still and quiet and contemplative.
Listen to your heart. Follow you heart. You are so very wise deep inside you and it is important to your emotional and physical health that you pay attention. My inside self today is saying be sad for change and loss, be glad for love, be patient with differences, be hopeful for joy, be creative at work, be restful tonight. It feels good to listen, to know I am taking care of myself, and to do what I need to be doing.
I encourage you to schedule time with your sweetie to talk about what you intuit about each other but isn’t obvious. Check out if your intuition is accurate. Do you suspect your partner is germinating a plan that isn’t yet being expressed? Do you suspect your partner is carrying feelings that you haven’t heard about? What do you suspect…..take time to check it out with each other. The unspoken can be harmful. We make up what we suspect and if we don’t check it out we could be in big trouble.
Give someone precious a hug. Life is way way too short.
