The extraordinary power of kindness…for opening the “shutters” on our hearts

~

~

~

Perhaps, some days we might feel more “open-hearted”…
our hearts feeling
warm, loving, loved, connected and full.

~

Other days, we might feel a bit like there are
“shutters” over our hearts…
maybe a bit closed, cut off, removed…?
possibly a bit worried, concerned or sad…?

~

But…
through the years,
I’ve notice something…

 I’ve noticed…
kindness can help to open the shutters on a heart,
….kindness….
whether we might be offering kindness or receiving kindness…
it can help open the shutters on each and every one of our hearts

~

Perhaps, you might be feeling a sense of a “shuttered” heart?

~

So hard to see out?
So hard to let “light” in?
“Shutters” seeming to be firmly in place?
“Light” just not seeming to come through?

~

~

But then,
perhaps, some kindness is offered…?
perhaps, some kindness is received…?

~

~

A little bit of kindness,
and some more kindness,
and some more kindness,
slowly, slowly adding warmth and strength,
helping to open those shutters on our hearts
. . . . . . . light seeping in . . . . . . .

~

~

…..little…..by little…..by little…..

~

~

Opening those shutters…
maybe even….shrinking their size…
little by little……light coming in…….

~

~

~

~

~

~

Kindness…
perhaps offered…perhaps received,
perhaps both offered and received,
such an extraordinarily simple, generous gift,
a truly precious gift….
a gift that can open the shutters on each and every one of our hearts

~

~

May we offer and receive abundant kindness throughout this day…
…kindness…
opening the “shutters” on all of our hearts…
letting in warmth, goodness, beauty and “light”
…..offering and receiving …..
goodness, kindness and love,
…kindness…
opening the shutters on our hearts

~

~

opening shutters...faith in goodness, kindness and love
