Purification of the Heart.

"Start with heart of beginnings, for it is the highest and noblest of beginnings."


I sit on my living room floor for hours. Organizing and reorganizing my suitcases as I mentally prepare for my Peace Corps Journey. The past year has been nothing but immunizations and doctor visits, work, traveling, meetings, flight booking and trying to be a good friend, daughter and sister. In between all the chaos my heart have become debilitated. My grandmother once told me, the human heart is delicate as a autumn leaf drafting and awaiting a spring breeze to revives its being. Life moves in such a fast pace it seems to pass by without us being about to truly enjoy it. I made it an obligation to spend the rest of my day in bed with a cup of tea and a heartwarming book. I am starting this journey with heart of beginnings, for it is the highest and noblest of beginnings.
