Keep rubbing the coin that is your heart . . .

Thought of the moment, courtesy of author and poet Maya Angelou in her book Letter to My Daughter:

The human heart is so delicate and sensitive that it always needs some tangible encouragement to prevent it from faltering in its labour. The human heart is so robust, so tough, that once encouraged it beats its rhythm with a loud unswerving insistency.

Two sides of the human heart — fragility and fortitude. The sides oppose one another, yet both require the same crucial ingredient — encouragement — in order to persist, to flourish.

Surround yourself with people, places and environments that encourage and support your heart. Do this always. And above all else, make sure that you yourself are the biggest, loudest, most loyal and enduring source of encouragement in your own life.
