I brush my heart everyday!!!

     We eliminate the odour, wash off the hands to get rid of dirt's, dust and vacuum our place, do the dishes, remove the stains, polish our shoes, brush our teeth, mop the floors, shampoo our hair, trim the plants, white-wash the walls, dust the shelves and books, service our cars, get unwanted things off our sight. Exactly, we throw away the unwanted. When I speak of unwanted its mostly to do with the things exterior. But, much greater plague lay in our hands. The kinds that medicine can't cure and the kinds that tears us apart, eats us from inside. Often times, although by no means always, we forget its not the things we need to get rid off. Its the heartbreaks, grudges, regrets, depression, anger, doubts... but we go on with life without trying to fix them. We might look shiny and clean but we become the walking, breathing tragedies.
     When it comes to THINGS - we keep the best ones close to heart and sight; let go of unwanted "tad too easily" in a heartbeat. And that's how it should function. HOLDING ON - either to things or people have never proved beneficial, never proved worthwhile. We should train and teach ourselves to let go of not only the unwanted things but people who pulls us down and frictions the happiness we deserve. Let go of whiners, unkind's, complainers, bullies, heart breakers, motor mouths, gossip mongers, everybody who are pulling us down.
     When we let go of unwanted things, we make more space for wanted. Similarly, letting go of people who who we don't want in life makes more space and time for the ones we want. Let go of things that aren't useful, beautiful and joyful. Make space for wanted. Let go of people who brings the worst in you out. Make space and time for those who helps you to face the sunshine. I am, by no means, suggesting you to be selfish but aware. Aware that our time in earth and present moment is limited. Keep close - to things and people - that will serve you the greatest and highest good.
     And I'm NO expert. I've started applying  this theory recently in my life. I've started making more time for the people I love, like and care. People who make my life meaningful, beautiful and joyful. Make time to write emails, make mini-phone calls, send post cards, buying meaningful gifts (not the 11th hour compensations). Its a process and I intend to hold on it it. Cheerios blog-buds!!! P.S. How often do you brush your Heart?

  8. (thanks for stopping by my little corner of the world...and leaving a note...)

    wonderful post...meaningful & inspiring words. i used to be flooded & overwhelmed with people & things that would drain & inflate me. i cared too much...and never put myself first. finally...i learned...before i completely deflated. i started to follow my heart...my gut feelings...and actually began to be aware of what makes ME happy, WHO makes ME happy.

    thanks for the uplifting post...and i'll be back to wander some more.

  9. I agree to what you said but I find it really difficult to do. To implement it in your lives is so difficult. I have a problem from past five months which I have tried to fix it in every manner possible but I can't let it go. I want to make more space but the process is not that easy. I wish I achieve a means to do that, to talk to myself and bring more positive energy in my life.

  11. Wondering since writing 'clears your head', how much rereading and editing of your blog posts do you find works best for you?

    When I read this part of your above blog post and especially its concluding sentence: "When we let go of unwanted things, we make more space for wanted. Similarly, letting go of people who who we don't want in life makes more space and time for the ones we want. Let go of things that aren't useful, beautiful and joyful. Make space for wanted. Let go of people who brings the worst in you out. Make space and time for those who helps you to face the sunshine. I am, by no means, suggesting you to be selfish but aware. Aware that our time in earth and present moment is limited. Keep close - to things and people - that will serve you the greatest and highest good."

    Your above paragraph flows so smoothly like there was no editing...just a seamless flow and development of thought, A VERY IMPORTANT THOUGHT.

    A lesson that I would like to keep in mind--almost wish I had a TATTOO that would help me. Any ideas of a tattoo that would symbolize this important thought I quoted from your post?

  12. First things first, "thank you for taking a time to read and comment." I think as i type and i don't edit a lot. Editing sort of diverts you away from your original idea. Hence my blog name, "grammatically incorrect...!"
    As for your last question, i'd choose the word "libertatem (freedom)!"
