We have a tendency to attach ourselves to places and things.
Our worth and happiness depends on this. Then when it’s taken away from us we crumble.
My heart’s been aching for all the victims caught up in all these natural disasters and with the fire getting so close to Waterton, it feels real.
It’s been a good reminder for me to stop and reflect on my heart attachments.
Things and places are meant for us to enjoy in the moment but they are not promised to us forever. Those attachments are bound to lead to heartache.
Maybe it takes the removal of ‘things’ for us to realize what’s really important and how much we need each other. Regardless of race, gender or political party.
Until next time,
