"Like the chromosomes in the cell's nucleus, the heart is something to protect. The heart carries your being: past, present, and future. The loud noise that often inundates the mind can be hard to manage, yet by listening to the heart you can find what it’s yearning for. Reaching out, creating connections, and watering you and relationships not only allows you to ground yourself, but it also allows you to root yourself in your history while also creating it.
Personally, I chose to continue living because of the realization that my cells were divine. They were doing their thing, chromosomes that were passed down from my ancestors were dividing endlessly for me to continue paving my own path while holding those before me, to follow my heart, to be who I want to be no matter the chatter in the mind."
