The many definitions of the human heart

Dear human heart,

*Editor’s note: I am ok. This is just an opinion piece based on my expertise on the subject which I wanted to share with you. Compensation for such advise is appreciated.

The heart is defined as “A muscular organ in both humans and other animals, which pumps blood through the blood vessels of the circulatory system. Blood provides the body with oxygen and nutrients, and also assists in the removal of metabolic wastes.” All really important stuff if you ask me. There is another definition to this vital organ that Webster’s and others fail to recognize in print. It is that the heart “Is the only human organ that can be shared with another without the use of an operating table.” When you give your heart to someone you never quite know how it will end up. Will it grow with that person? Will it be broken? Is this a good idea? Is this a bad idea? Where will it lead? These questions and others like it are what we ask ourselves internally when it comes to opening our most precious organ to another. If we knew the answers to these questions life would be simple (good) but at the same time boring (bad). Besides these two elementary analogies when it comes to our hearts and what happens to them when we give it to another is without the aforementioned questions asked, we wouldn’t learn and become a better person from the experience that they give us. A heart that grows with another is a beautiful thing. It’s like a seed you plant in the spring. You do your best to give it all it needs to blossom. As each day passes you continue to smile as this relationship between two hearts matures. Yes, you will have bad days along the way but you learn to overcome adversity and move forward stronger than before. The pinnacle of this relationship is when it blooms. There really isn’t any other object or emotion to compare this to for those of us who have been lucky enough to be a part of something this special. As quickly as two hearts develop they can be torn apart in the blink of an eye. That same plant that was blooming, can be hit with rain and cold and stunt or kill that flower. A heart that has been hurt or broken has no specific cure. It’s up to the individual to deal with the pain caused by another. What I’ve learned in my short time on this planet is that everyone is different. Some get over loved ones very quickly while in others it may take a great allotment of time to heal what is ailing them. However you deal with the situation it won’t be easy. You will think about them daily both in a good way and bad. A song will come on the radio and trigger a memory. They will pop up on social media doing something you use to do together. It’s hard, but guess what?  One day you just wake up and it’s gone. This is the one thing that I can promise you. No matter what you think, or how bad it hurts, this will happen. God made life too short for it not to be this way. Now I’m not saying that those memories will fade because they never will. You see, the hearts storage ability is endless. It takes those past thoughts and feelings and tucks them away for future references. It’s a notebook to look back on the next time you find a heart that you want to share yours with. That next heart will eventually come along. The love you share with it will not be the same as the other or others in the past and that by all accounts is a good thing because they didn’t work out. The key to this all is never be afraid to give your heart to someone when it feels right. The seed that is planted the next time may just be the one that flowers and you never know where that might lead…

PS. Happy Friday peeps. I hope you all get to spend this Easter weekend with family and loved ones and remember….Eat more bacon and have more sex. You can’t go wrong with either.
