Todays reminder: It is risky to care- I may be dissapointed. But in trying to protect myself from pain, I could cut myself off from the many delights that life has to offer. I will live more fully today.

Dear Mole-- your heart is far from rusty- it is strong, and vibrant and brave- like you. It keeps showing up -it endeavours bravely, it nutures hope and beats out the beat of action for your dreams As for your soul there is not even one little tiny wrinkle---it is ia masterpiece just as it is- it is full of enthusiasm,kindness,art, wonder and beauty.
I am sending hugs your way. It sounds like a hard time right now.Be kind to yourself. All will be well-keep going. Your kindness and wisdom has helped me so much in past year since ive been here. Thank you dear Molexoxo
That is such a lovely message, dear jalla. I have copied it on to my desk top so that I can look at it whenever I switch on. I can think of no better affirmation, no better motivation.
thank you from my newly oiled heart.
