Following Your Heart

followyourheartThere is something weighing on your mind, it’s a decision that you need to make for the well being of yourself and your family. You know in your heart this is a decision that if not made soon may just destroy every one around you, including yourself. Making decisions usually can be easy, for example you probably set some resolutions for the New Year but you may not actually follow through with all of them.

There are many people who live their lives exactly they way they want to live them and this is fantastic, I love reading stories from people who are truly happy and truly followed their heart in every move they made in life. The people who are living happily are not those who do not face challenges, by all means even the most positive person in the world faces daily challenges. Life is simply full of obstacles that one must over come, some people seem to have a stronger sense of self than others do.

Years ago I had this gut feeling and I didn’t follow it, why? Because this gut feeling had no proof behind it, no real meaning, I was unable to have physical proof in my hand to prove that the feeling inside of me was correct. It wasn’t until months later that I had my proof and when that proof arrived it had been too late, I exploded emotionally and physically, that was a day I decided to never again ignore my gut feelings and I was determined to follow my heart.

Following your heart can be so hard to do, there may be days where you pep talk yourself all up and you are ready, ready to move forward and follow through with the decision you know is right. All too often there are days when you know in your heart this decision must be made and the action taken to follow through, but it’s too hard on you. It’s so much easier to tell yourself that maybe it’s just stress, maybe it’s life situations, or maybe it’s just something wrong with you why you are feeling this way. All of those can be true, everyday life challenges can certainly play a toll on your mind in a way that gives your heart false feelings.

If your heart has been telling you that a situation is not right for a long period of time, then maybe, just maybe this feeling is something that must be true and you need to follow through in terms of action. Once you have made the decision to follow through with the act of following your heart you will find a huge weight has been lifted off of your shoulders, you will find yourself looking at life in a whole new light. Many may not understand, and that is okay as long you understand that the decision you have made and followed through with is that of an important nature to your well being.

    Hi Brandy,

    This is my first time visiting your Blog, what a wonderful post. Too often I have know what I should do but stop myself for the sake of others. I found this comforting as I am faced with a difficult decision right now. I know in my heart that it is time to let go of our family pet, our dog, our 12 year old chocolate lab, our Elwood…we will miss you Elwood!

    Many decisions we face are very tough. I follow my heart, but my heart also holds on to what will be best for the ones I love, too. There are very few decisions I make all alone, but those are by far the toughest.

    This is true. I’m going through some stuff with Jeff and I’m just torn on what to do but need to stop and just listen to what my gut is saying.

    In the book called “Breaking The Rules” it is strongly suggested there that we learn to follow our “feelings” in making decisions instead of what we think is right. They even cited that kids are the perfect examples because they exactly know how to do this. Kids rely on feelings, until grown ups teach them to rely more on “thinking”. Feeling is our link to our higher selves, which, obviously knows more than we consciously do.

    I hope you find what really makes you happy.
