Do you follow what your heart craves?

As odd as it sounds, sometimes our logical minds can hold us back. Our brains might scream at us that it is safer to do what has been tried and true in the past, but don't let the fear of the unknown stop you! We all spend a lot of time worrying and little time examining the calling of our own hearts.Trying new things can be terrifying, but following our passions can make us feel alive and become some of our most memorable moments in life. The thrill of love, the depths of grief, and the joys of a new career...all would be impossible without passion.

I think it is really important to follow what we truely desire and what really our hearts wants cause by doing that it will give us the happiness and joy that we are looking for. Besides it is what we wanted. Though it will not end to that cause we are humans and we all have no satisfaction and contenment it is still important to do.

As far as I am concerned, there is nothing else to follow. Our logic can talk us into incredible things but it is our heart that will always lead us in the right direction. The only downfall is when you live by your heart, you get hurt. So, it is truly a risk to be our authentic, loving selves in a world of catastrophic messes. We are too smart for our own good sometimes and our decisions can appear heartless. There needs to be a balanced unity between logic and one's soul. Both can't operate detached from one another. Yes, I work everyday on what my heart craves but my mind has to become the reasoning side to my heart. Sometimes our minds know what our hearts cannot comprehend but we still need the wisdom of mind to guide our heart. Contemplate what is posssible when both work in unison.
