“It’s not the things we get but the hearts we touch that will determine our success in life.” – Mac Anderson
When we share our personal stories with others, telling them our challenges and also what keeps us positive and strong, it lifts spirits. Recently this happened with two women I met.
One woman told me she came alone to America from Equador when she was twenty-one. She became a Nanny, learned English then received certification for massage therapy and Reiki. We talked about meditation, saints, and healing. I asked her if she heard of the Meditation on Twin Hearts with Master Choa where he honors saints, Mother Earth and sends blessings to all beings. I literally saw her face light up. She told me she felt sad lately and I was an angel sent to lift her sadness.
The other young woman was from Vietnam. She asked me if I had children, then told me about her struggles with the possibility of not having children. “Do you think it’s ok to not have children?” Absolutely, I told her. I don’t have children and neither do many of my friends. We’re fortunate today to not be pressured or expected to raise a family.
Both expressed sadness but then we talked about things that pick us up – music, dancing, learning new things, meditation, keeping a positive spirit, connecting with like-minded people. I left them feeling lighter myself knowing what a difference we can make when we touch hearts.
