“she could feel the path… under her feet and wasn’t afraid…”
A Zen Moments reader sent us the picture below and told us its inspiring story:
“Colored Path” was a gift to my sister, symbolizing her new beginning after 11 years of domestic violence.
My “Zen moment” was when she told me that she now felt like she could feel the path in this painting, under her feet and wasn’t afraid to follow it!
“Colored Path” A Painting by Sheri – an artist from Ohio, USA.

“Starting over after a divorce, a painful breakup, or the death of a loved one can be the most challenging experience of a lifetime…
Eventually, when the healing process is complete, we fully let go. In our minds and hearts, we surrender and accept that we can’t change what has happened. Being single again, we start to rebuild our lives. Once more,we begin to reach out to give and receive love. Although we could not have imagined it, our lives come back to a sense of normalcy. After the darkness of despair, the warm, comforting, and soothing sunshine of love reveals itself once again. Although this happy ending is possible, it is not guaranteed…
When a bone breaks, our body already contains the natural healing power to correct the problem. It hurts, but eventually the pain goes away… In a similar way,if you are able to nurture the healing of a broken heart, it also will grow back stronger. The pain and despair will pass, and you will find love and joy again.
When a broken heart heals it actually grows back stronger.” Extract from the book: Mars and Venus Starting Over by John Gray
