Sometimes, all that is left to do, is to open.
Open my heart.
Open to the possibilities.
Open to hearing others.
Open to trusting.
When the world is closing in, and I am starting to forget how to trust, it is tempting to go inward, to shut down, and to put up walls.
Shutting down offers the certainty of loss and pain and fear. Opening feels scary and vulnerable, because it has the potential to allow in pain of an unknown source, but this is not certain. Opening is the way to let love in.
