Vulnerability. Common ground. Sharing oneself with another. This is a raw form of communication. It can be bare and fragile if not received in an open manner. I hope you all give your heart in small doses, or maybe, to someone special all at once. Embrace the fear and the uncomfortable feeling of sharing your ultimate self. You are so much more than one heart to heart. You are a whole with many pieces, many hearts to give, numerous stories to share. Embrace each and everyone of your pieces. Embrace anyone who will listen. Who will listen intently, wholeheartedly, and in return offer a piece of their heart. There is raw beauty in connection. I hope when you find it, when it knocks on your door, or bumps into you on the street, or shows up unexpectedly, you embrace every moment. You deserve those moments.
