What It Means To Be Wholehearted

Being wholehearted says, “Breathe everything that makes you love today.” Breathe and let that breath offer you joy that you can give to someone you care for. You can dance and let your bare feet sweep all the magic the earth has hidden from you and cause a hundred butterflies to erupt from your music to treat you as their eternal garden. Be like the grass – always grounded, and when it rains, brings petrichor to the sight of those who smell goodness with their hearts.

Being wholehearted says, “Breathe everything that makes you love today.” On a night when the moon is smiling, you shall smile with her too, and drink and share laughter and good stories with your friends, for friendship is the root of all happiness. Breathe and look around you – if you see a soul that weeps at the stars, wishing to be a part of them if he dies tonight, hold his hand. Tell him you love how he understands how to laugh without anyone else to share his cheerfulness with. Tell him you love how he understands how poetry is not what he writes when the beauty of words can suffice the need for company and love, but poetry is what he feels when he’s in the arms of the being he loves, and so you kiss him in all of his broken places, and all of his tears are nothing more than trickles of drops from oblivion.

Being wholehearted says, “Breathe everything that makes you love today.” Make peace with everything that makes you feel resentful and bitter. Make space for the birds of wisdom, peace, and strength to chirp serene songs for your bedtime blues and breathe all the heavens and say, “Thank you, thank you, thank you,” with every inhale, “for the love that makes me rise no matter how painful the fall.” Then exhale everything that’s weighing you down and live your life.
