This little heart of mine.

“The heart is not always open to receive things. One must layer all the goodness on it, inevitably it will soak it in.”
.
I learned that quote in my Shiur last night. It resonated with me. It kind of goes with the “go with the flow”, “Jump right in” philosophies.
.
The quote swam in my mind the entire evening. Allowed me to reflect on the entire reasoning behind why Israel chose me, and ultimately why I chose her.
.
Upon arrival, I layered many things on my heart. Which was cemented shut for quite some time. A constant need to move forward from the tragedies – a constant need to layer beautiful things on top to open it up. I’m sure in my sleep- when my heart would be relaxed and unaware, something would sleep inside of it, filling out the corners and gave it a hearty beat.
.
I began by taking things hour by hour. Then morning by morning. Then week by week, and next thing you know, so many things seeped inside and It’s two years later- and I am only a month or so away from accomplishing my Aaliyah.
.
I’ll put that quote in my pocket and take it with me wherever I go.
