My whole world went up in flames, in fact more than just flames; A life changing situation that left a burning crater of atomic proportions in my heart, the fallout was loss of my entire world as I knew it.
And now, It's just called Grief.
Author Ann Voskamp says “Not one thing in your life is more important than figuring out how to live in the face of unspoken pain”
How do we live in the face of unspoken pain? My answer to is learn to live again, dream again, find a new world.
Learn to live again, dream again,
find a new world...
I'm looking for a whole new world, and there's so much to love about this new world that I see:
I see people. People are marvellous don't you think? Diversity in looks, language, personality, culture. There's nothing more compelling to me than the wonder of an open-hearted human.
I see places. What a mind blowing planet. Travelling to new destinations makes my heart burst in the glory of beholding wonders that I've never before seen.
I see creativity. The craft of human hands at its best in architecture, art, wine and culinary delights.
I see spaces. Delightful interiors created for rest, contemplation, fun, connection.
I see knowledge. There's so much yet to know, a world of wisdom and possibilities.
I bought a dress. This dress is going to take me places. It could be the last dress I ever buy. I bought a plane ticket, first stop: Paris, the favourite choice of many a wholehearted or brokenhearted girl.
Bring on this beautiful world, this journey is going to heal my burning heart.
Wish me well and follow xo
