Always follow your heart? ~.^

So, I have heard the saying "Always follow your heart" too many times to count! Here's the thing....The heart makes excuses! It's blind, it's naive and overlooks the obvious! The head....that inner voice that's our common sense, recognizes these faults our hearts have...hence the battle of wills! Have you ever wanted something so bad that even your ignorant heart realizes it's making excuses not to turn away? Now flip this around! I have been reading for 20 years. I have always wanted to write, but spent years putting other things ahead of what I desired most. My head was telling me to stay straight and take care of business. My heart was telling me turn from my head and grab what I wanted! I can do it....I DID do it! Life is all about do's and donts...Should I...I know I shouldn't....Go for it....walk away from it! I just seem to jump heart AND head first into everything! It works for me. I'm not without fear...I'm also pulling blinders off as I go. Shedding layers of doubt, layers of ignorance, and layers of anchors. In the past week alone....Blinders have been taken off...about my entire life really...All of my bad choices, my embarrassing naivety, but most of all my excuses! It's becoming more clear by the day! I have also met some fabulous people on this journey...Some incredible women and a few men who believe in me, trust me and would do anything for me...A career that has taken off, and a whole world in front of me just waiting for me to grab it and run!! As Fayth Devlin would say...I picked the music!!

  1. I am so proud of you! I am glad you listened to your heart and went after your dreams. I have had the same struggle deciding whether to follow my heart or head, and have would up trying to stay the practical course more often than not. Not anymore, I am in the process of living my dream of [ublishing my writing, which is something I should have done a long time ago, but never pursued publication very hard. I have my suspicions why it never came to fruition before, but now is my time too. Now is the time to pursue the dreams we have put on the backburner out of fear of failure or fear of the unknown. Now is out time to shine and live life without boundaries. The only advice I can give to someone is to not wait for the right time. To quote Nike, "Just do it."

  2. The heart overlooks the obvious and is blind for a reason, my little one. The heart gives you your TRUE motivation, your true loves if you will. The heart is deeply connected to the soul of a man/woman. The mind tells you the obvious because it doesn't want to step outside of the safety zone. The mind has certain steps to take and refuses to deviate from these. If you think about it, the mind never "wants" or "feels". The heart has PASSION and reaches down into our very soul to encourage us to reach for what we want or feel. If we wait on the mind to finally say it is safe, it may be too late. Passion is a driving force that sometimes can't be ignored. You have that Passion, my friend and I am sitting back watching you go for it with GREAT PRIDE. I am watching you soar...

  3. If it is something you have a passion for try it. don't let the fear stop you or life. This is a journey you want to take and not take it because someone might force you or other. I love to write and can't imagine my life without it. I can delve deep into my mind, my heart and soul and express myself with words and stories. I need to write, it is like air for me..My life.
