Vulnerability is a good thing and even empowering. But. There is the possibility of realizing you are a huge fool.

When you open your heart, on some level, you have to know that you are opening yourself up to be broken. You HAVE to put yourself out there and play that lottery. And it sucks.

As the smoke clears in my own life, I see what I knew was coming. No one on the other side.

Even though I feel like a fool, it was worth the risk. I had to do the work and go halfway across that bridge knowing that there may not be a person in the middle to meet me.

I learned that I could fall in love. And I did. Hard.

I learned that obstacles can’t be overcome alone.

I learned that even though I ended a 17 year marriage, I wasn’t the cold, heartless person that I was afraid that I was.

I learned that no matter how tiny the chance is to make something work, I will take it because I believe in the power of true love.

So I may feel broken and alone, but I experienced something truly beautiful and that makes everything completely worth fighting for.
