For anyone who is holding themselves back from loving again or persevering with a dream due to being hurt/disappointed in the past:
You are here to experience and express that which is in your heart - whether that be great love, a loving home and family, or making the world more beautiful with your spirit, your essence and your gifts. Don’t be scared because of what was. It was terrible. It was tragic. But to not create the love and beauty again that you were born to create, to cut off the joy that wants to be felt due to the fear of the past recurring, is to repeat the past hurt every day.
Let it go, and open yourself up again to the life and love that wants to pour through you and from you.
