One Million Heartbreaks

Published November 18, 2019

I had a few goals this year which revolved around arranging my schedule to align with my values. In order to see through this success I spent a lot of time offilne to give everything a solid college try. I’ve learned a lot. Specifically, I know intimately what it’s like to have your heart break one million times over.

Quite recently I stumbled upon this podcast episode which put into words some of my thoughts about this year (and the previous four years) and have highlighted portions below:

Highlights and notes

It’s okay to be heartbroken over all the minor and major disappointments of your life. It’s likely a sign that you are moving in the right direction… just make sure you’re not stuck admiring the heartbreaks. Leaving the rest to Dolly,

You better stop whining, pining
Get your dreams in line
And then just shine, design, refine
Until they come true
