stay with a broken heart.

middle path

“To stay with a broken heart, with a rumbling stomach, with the feeling of hopelessness and wanting to get revenge—that is the path of true awakening.”

~ Pema Chodron

With this quote as a guide, Some days I am absolutely certain I am as fully awake as I can be.

Other days, I must be either sound asleep, or at some momentary destination, cause I can’t even relate to how that feels.

I’ve discovered over time and serious practice, the middle of these two ranges is where I’m best to make choices, create momentum and commit to things— The totally broken me, or the on fire me— neither are super sustainable for long periods of time.

The gentle middle– it’s where I belong and live the most effective life possible.
