IT’S DAY 10/10 and I could keep going with my list of gratitudes … but I’ll wrap the posts at 10, as promised.
Randy Travis wrote a song years ago called My Heart Cracked … some of the lyrics go:
Shattered dreams, lay everywhere
Broken promises, are all we share
I finally took, all I could take
My heart cracked, but it did not break
My heart’s been broken, twice – we’ve all have broken hearts – they suck don’t they? But today, I’m grateful for my heartbreaks.
Each heartbreak made my heart stronger, wiser and hopefully more experienced. It gave me the wisdom to tell between loyalty and unfaithfulness, to tell the difference between a lie and a truth, and eventually between reality and expectations.
I used to listen A Little Bit Stronger by Sara Evans on repeat when I was going through it. Do you love this song too?
It doesn’t happen overnight but you
Turn around and a month’s gone by
And you realize you haven’t cried
I’m not giving you a hour or a second or another minute longer
I’m busy getting stronger
And, oh, I’m done thinking,
You could ever change
I know my heart will never be the same
But I’m telling myself I’ll be okay
Even on my weakest days,
I get a little bit stronger
But that was time ago, and I don’t wanna play the broken-hearted girl (Sasha Fierce), I’m better than that. I have so much to offer someone and when The Universe feels it’s time for me to meet him, I will. Until then, I’m just happy being ME and be grateful for my lessons in love.
