But vulnerability isn’t the opposite of strength. It’s a necessary part. We have to force ourselves to open up. To expose ourselves. To offer up everything we have and just pray that it’s good enough.

When I was five, my mom lost me in a park. I don’t remember much, except that one minute I was riding a carousel and the next she was gone. I don’t remember how I found her. I don’t remember how I got home. All I remember is what happened next. She told me not to worry. She told me everything would be fine. She told me it was time to play the quiet game so I knew I wasn’t supposed to ask any questions. Or else, I might have told her I forgot my doll. I loved that doll so much. It killed me to leave it behind. Funny isn’t it? The way memory works? The things you can’t quite remember and the things you can never forget.

There can be beauty in getting lost. Sometimes we have to get lost to find each other and sometimes we find each other, only to get lost all over again. We can’t always control it, the thing that’s going to set you adrift. And as you stand there on your front porch staring at the life you are about to leave behind, you have to accept it’s gone, it’s lost. Just like you. All you can do now is stand very still, breathe in the moment and try to be open to wherever the wind’s going to take you next.

corporisfabrica:

Chordae tendineae, also known as heart strings.

Situated inside the heart, these collagenous strands keep the valves of the heart from inverting under the high pressures of systole (heart contractions).

In practice, this means that the direction of blood flow is controlled: blood only moves in one direction when the heart delivers a pump.

The core of a human body is significantly hotter than the surface of the skin. Note the influx of hot blood into the coronary arteries as the exposed heart beats.
