I'm not wishing this on anyone, but every now and then, you may find that a major requirement in life, is, to rise above your emotional mess. Maybe you're going through a divorce, maybe it's a breakup, maybe you have been betrayed more than once, and by people you trusted. Whatever the cause, it's completely natural to want to avoid experiencing such pain again. And seemingly, the easiest thing to do is to harden one's soul and deaden one's heart.
But to walk down that road is to also risk blocking out the beautiful people already in your life and other such beautiful people headed your way. To live like that, would be the greater tragedy.
So, we need to overcome the uncertainty of opening our hearts again. As that's easier said than done, here's a song that proposes how to do just that. Peculiarly enough, it is inspired by what alcoholics do at AA (Alcoholics Anonymous). They don't tell themselves that "I will stop drinking for a lifetime". They propose to themselves that "just for today, I will not drink."
So, instead of trying to open your heart for a lifetime, open your heart #JustForToday
