Heart gifts

Isn’t it lovely when someone shares something really worth spending time with?

I’ve had several such gifts this week.

Firstly, Mark Storm’s Working Notes of a Practising Neo-Generalist (#25) – On Innovation and the need for softer, more beautiful words.

This is a beautifully crafted, thoughtful reflection, which did my heart good. Do read it when you have time to sit and eat soul food…

Then yesterday, Brigid Russell shared a simple Tweet with a picture that so looked like our lane in the valley.

But it was the words that drew me in and took me much, much deeper. Challenging me to ask what I am giving myself to…

“A true vocation calls us out beyond ourselves; breaks our heart in the process and then humbles, simplifies and enlightens us about the hidden, core nature of the work that enticed us in the first place.“

David Whyte from ‘Consolations: The Solace, Nourishment, and Underlying Meaning of Everyday Words.’

May these be heart gifts for you too.
