Perhaps the noblest private act is the unheralded effort to open our hearts once they've closed to open our souls once they've shied away
For in the course of our lives we all stumble and struggle repeatedly in and out of relationship in and out of the grace of the hidden wholeness of life it is in part why we need each other
We need to give up what no longer works and find new ways of being that keep us close to what matters
In the end only three things matter how much you loved how gently you lived and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you
