Do you open your heart to everything you receive in life? Yall know I love podcasts. I was listening to Oprah’s super soul conversations last week and feeling oh so inspired. But it got me thinking…
When You Open Your Heart, It’s Easy to Feel Inspired …
It’s easy to love the people, ideas and things that inspire us.
Things that are easy to love:
- adorable babies,
- stories of people who have overcome,
- people who love us well. (You get the idea).
Things not so easy to love:
- the person that screwed up your order,
- my child not following directions,
- the parent that let you down, the careless teenager that knocked over your expensive bicycle…
- the parts of ourselves we don’t like.
Why Do We Open or Close Our Hearts?
I started to examine and question how, when and why my heart is open or closed.
- Why does Oprah inspire me more than the janitor that cleans up at work?
- Why do I dismiss things I don’t perceive as valuable?
I became saddened at my tendency to value people with influence over just valuing all people equally. I got kinda excited to start greeting people with wonder and interest.

We Easily Love What We Like
Later that week, a friend posted this video on Facebook. It was inspiring (easy to love) but spoke of a similar message. We can learn from anyone, regardless of their background, education or influence.
It seems a mighty seed was planted and taking root in my heart.
At the tail end of the weekend, a soul mentor of mine opened my eyes even wider.
We Don’t Love What We Don’t Like
She helped me see parts of myself that I didn’t love with ease. In fact, I was doing the opposite. I was dismissing or alienating myself in a sense. I was focusing on the wound, the pain, the problem; perpetuating a sense of helplessness. The pain was growing. It felt ultimately out of my control. Like I was helpless to lessen the hurt.
What Happens When You Choose to Love What You Don’t Like?
But, what if I chose to love that part? What if I embraced myself more fully? What if I have the power to shift my pain by focusing on what is loving and kind. In the same way, I desire to be loving and kind to everyone. Regardless of their story, background or behavior.
So, now what?
Now I put it into action.
[bctt tweet=”Loving yourself with all aspects of within you.”]
I love the parts that don’t come naturally.
The more I focus on love; the more love will grow. My perspective will shift. Everything will feel better. And it echoes and resonates. For generations.
