“If it is true that there are as many minds as there are heads, then there are as many kinds of love as there are hearts.” ― Leo Tolstoy
Make a fist. This is about the size of your heart. You probably don’t think too much about it, you may even forget it’s there. While you are walking, biking, shopping, or watching your favorite mini series, your heart is beating non-stop. It never rests.
The heart beats about 100,000 times a day, more than 30 million times per year, and about 2.5 billion times in a 70-year lifetime. It is hollow and pumps 2000 gallons of blood a day, but there is a secret power we each have that make it one of the most powerful parts of our being.
