I started gardening a few years ago, and the no's started hurting less. Then I started dancing, and a greater easiness set in. I got into the habit of daily counting my blessings, and the no-ness became an even dimmer ache; I would not let it paralyze me.
Late this afternoon, I came upon the following words on MSNBC.com, and I thought at once that I must share them with you. The story is about the ways in which bottled anger can actually damage your heart, and the words are these: Anger can strangle blood flow in the heart and lead to abnormal heart rhythms, and has been linked to an increased risk of heart disease.
I have to think that bottled heartache can do the same. My message with this post is simple, then: Learn from the no's what you can, and then move past them. Keep your own heart in tact; let it beat free.
