What Moves You?

It seems as I get older I more prone to tears. Tears of joy, tears of happiness and tears of gratitude.

I am moved to tears by beautiful music, a dance, acts of kindness and I have been known to even tear up at a sunset.

Other things that move me;

● People helping each other

● Someone excelling at something like a sportsperson or musician

● A book or words from a book

● A painting

● Inspiring quotes

● Child’s pose in yoga (known as the heart opener)

● Getting a deep tissue massage

● Singing our National Anthem

● The beauty in nature

Don’t be afraid to show emotion, let your kids see you react like that. Crying is an overflow of emotions. Having a big open good heart is a beautiful thing.

I came across these words and just love them…

Let your heart break daily

In conversation

Over song lyrics

During the pause, right before the sunrise

While your sipping coffee + looking into the eyes of someone talking about something they love

For its when we break a little we come ALIVE

It’s in this space of feeling we get to EXPAND

And it’s here in our vulnerability and openness, we step into our GREATEST SELVES!


Connecting to what moves us helps bring meaning, fulfilment and purpose into our lives. It gives us hope and inspires. The soul needs to believe in a better world.

Read my previous post On Finding Hope.

“Hope is not pretending that troubles don’t exist. It is the hope that they won’t last forever. That hurts will be healed and difficulties overcome. That we will be lead out of the darkness and into the sunshine.” LifeLifeHappy

So, what moves you, what softens your heart, what expands your emotions?

    I’ve always been one that gets the feels so easily… since I’ve become a mother, this has increased exponentially. I’m always blown away just how beautiful life really is. This morning I was cuddling with my daughter in bed before we started our day and the way she curled up next to me and whispered a tiny ‘I love you’ totally did me in. Loved this post!

    Beautiful post. It reminds me of some quotes from one of my favorite poets, Rumi. I also get choked up very easily, but I don’t mind feeling deeply, even if it’s hard sometimes.

      Hi Christine, I love Rumi as well. Thanks so much for the comment.
