Take heart 3



Sometimes we just need to take a deep breath. Slow our head and listen to our heartbeat.

Whilst our heads are full of the whys, hows and whens – our heart cannot fully feel.

Just stop. Feel again. Enjoy.

Don’t be afraid of peace.

Embracing peace [contentment] in the now is not you giving up on that thing you’re hoping for.

Don’t push her away telling yourself that it’s not ok to be ok with how things are. You must search, strive, find the answer.


Peace will be your dearest friend if you’ll let her.

Loving her is not giving up on hope, it’s giving hope a friend.

It’s trusting that things are going to work out just fine without all your striving, worrying and stressing.

Life will not pass you by. Enjoy now for now.

Just take a deep breath and take heart dear friend.
