I have been following along with @tifforelie's story for some time now. She lost the love of her life and has been brave enough to share her healing process with others.
In sharing, she quotes her Love, “is learning to be in a deep relationship with others possibly the greatest adventure of them all? Is it possibly the deepest, most uncharted wilderness still available? The wilderness of knowing and being known… the adventure of beating your heart for another to see.” - Kappel James Cloninger. *
I’ve shared this quote with so many people. I’ve written it on postcards, read it out loud both over the phone and in person, painted it and thought a lot about how I could live it out in my own life… I’ve come to the conclusion that THIS is our purpose; learning, loving and growing in deep relationships with the people around us. Showing our love by being vulnerable even when we don’t know the outcome and it may seem like the scariest thing in the world.
My heart was heavy and hurting the morning I met Tiff. She immediately invited me to join her @gabidipace and @lady_bro road trip, offering me the opportunity to heal and work out my pain, all the while she was graciously confronting her own pain.
When we can step out of our own pain and into someone else's THIS is when we gain life; our hearts start to heal one anothers. I am so grateful for the forever friendships I made this weekend. **sappy post about @lady_bro & @gabidipace coming next** ❤❤❤
