Love is at the Heart

Find Your Middle Ground

choose love

“Love is at the heart of all things. How you feel but reflects your decision to accept love or to reject it and choose fear. Both cannot be chosen.
All feelings you label joyous or compassionate are of love. All feelings you label painful or angry are of fear. This is all there is.

This is the world you make. Love or fear is your reality by your choice.
A choice for love creates love. A choice for fear creates fear.
What choice do you think has been made to create the world you call your home?

I created a document. I wrote all the beautiful, amazing things about Michael that I wanted him to be always reminded of. Here’s a brief sample of what I did:

An Attitude of Gratitude

The Wholly Grail


‘Just think more positively…’

Easier said than done and not the best advice if you’ve a had a crap day, week or even year. It is the last thing you want to hear in that moment and probably the least helpful. Especially if you are up to your eyes with work, you feel like your relationships are falling apart and life continues to throw curve balls right at your face (or so it seems). We’ve all been there, when it all gets a bit too much and we just want to hide under the covers. Cue Positive Polly, telling you to ‘think positive’ and you may feel like doing something unquestionable to poor Polly.
