52 Days ago I started a process of listening to my heart with an … open heart. It has been amazing and I will continue this, ideally for 7 more cycles, to complete a full year. I am also 52 years old and on my birthday quipped that I’m now officially “a full deck” (and I love to play cards).

Medium.com is where these daily posts are written each evening. If you are a member and would like to “clap” for each of these stories I would very much appreciate it. But I’m not writing these for your or anyone else’s claps. I’m writing it as a tribute to the abundant love that is everywhere we seek it. I’m writing these because I am so grateful and this feeling of reverence is what I want to grow in my life.
