The Unexplained Broken Heart

I don't understand why it is that I feel as though I have a broken heart. Everything in my life points to it not being this way but I can't always ignore that dull weight that holds me back every so often. Perhaps it's a sign that I've outgrown what I have now.

"Where do you go with your broken heart in tow?
What do with the left
over you?
How do you know when to let go,
where does the good
go?"

Tegan and Sara

Go

Aw : ) Maybe you're just missing something from your life, something you deeply desire but can't find or find the time for yet? Something that makes your heart ache to go without - love? peace? freedom? more holidays (hehe)?

I read a good quote last night too, simple but.. true.

The mystery of love is greater than the mystery of death - Oscar Wilde

There are pivotal points in life where individual growth is needed. Perhaps this is one of those moments? Try some yoga and meditation, and see where your heart leads you!

Feelings will express themselves one way or another and if you've been holding the 'weight' back long enough then it just becomes harder and harder to identify the cause.

The good news is you don't need to! Just because you feel bad doesn't mean you are doing bad.

First things first, consider that the weight may not be mental? Try emphasizing the way you take care of yourself physically. It can be as simple as a slight protien deficiancy, or making due with 7.5 hours instead of 8 that is catching up with you! Even if this isnt the case, being a little more fresh will always help you when you need a creative solution!

Second thing, is that if you are missing something in like it doesn't mean you've out grown what you have. Moving on doesnt necessitate leaving things behind. Discovering whats missing is tricky, and not knowing you, I'm certainly not going to offer much advice here. However, I personally find that allowing myself to act a little more ad libitum is the best way to start. Worry a little less about your routines or commitments and take a bit more time to waste doing whatever comes to mind.

Third, get help. Talk to someone you're willing to share with. See if they have any good ideas, or bad Ideas that spark good ones!

The fourth bit I'm going ot think on a while longer.
