There are many broken heart quotes but the one that has meaning for us was said by Alexander Graham Bell:

"When one door closes, another opens;
but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door
that we do not see the one which has opened for us."

There are tremendous meanings within broken heart quotes and one of these predominant themes is that contained within the quote cited above.

So often, it is very difficult to see beyond current problems whether that is a broken relationship, a failed business, or a downward spiral in a career. It is also very easy to dwell on our current problems, and even easier to stay stuck in the past when the hurt has been deep, or we have not yet come to terms with what causes us grief.

As the broken heart quote above suggests, if we are mired in the past, and if we have failed to set our sights for the future, we cannot see that there is another course of action, or another opportunity because our minds cannot see beyond the issue or problem.

Sometimes, people are also prone to only focus on the problem and are therefore more problem oriented than they are solution oriented. This is not to say that some problems or concerns are easy to resolve but remember this. You cannot move beyond today if you live in yesterday.

Grief heals with time but that time can be long and hard if you do not allow yourself to first count the blessings that you still have. One loss of one blessing does not wipe out all the other blessings in your life. Allow yourself the opportunity to count what you have now, that which is still with you like true friends, health, or family that support and love you. Sure there is a tragic loss or problem but life is not just a single possession just as there are more eggs than the one broken.

Give your heart full licence to grieve but also give your heart full reign to welcome what you still have and the option to look beyond that which consumes your mind now. Life is to be lived fully, in the future, and not locked through one event forever assigned to the past.
