When we look inside ourselves and contemplate our story of self, we may seek ways to tell an honest story to ourselves and to others toward more acceptance and celebration of our wholeness. Like Kahlo, we may express what lives in our hearts in different ways, from symbols to ornamentation to realist portrayals. To what degree we include the heart directly in the story of self is personal. Where do you tell the truth about your love, grief, happiness, and serenity?

I love you already.
