Follow Your Heart

Why is it we too often find ourselves not listening to the true words our heart is telling us. You say "no" when you really want to say "yes" and you're left unhappy about the outcome. I feel like so many of us are stuck in a place of wanting to please others, so much so that we ourselves are left empty with no energy. When it comes to self, you should be the most important aspect of the conversation. If you want to do something that is going to bring you joy and happiness, then do it. As free will human beings we are the only one's in charge of our own lives and therefore have no one else to blame for the decisions we make. Sure we might point fingers and do the "he said/she said" but really at the end of it all we were the ones who made the final decision. That's why it's so important for all of us to remember to follow our own hearts, so that we can always be happy with the end result knowing that it was us and only us who truly made the choice. In a world where we are bombarded by media it's easy to lose sight of our true selves and the voices inside of us but there is hope. Whenever making a decision take a few moments and look inside yourself and ask "is this truly going to make me happy, is this really what I want at this current moment?" If the answer is yes, then go ahead and make the move, if the answer is no, then be strong for your own sake and stand in that power of no. It can be hard to say "no" to loved ones, friends and family, but it's essential to one's own self. If you are constantly saying "yes" to things you don't want to be then resentment and anger can slowly grow and build and this doesn't bring joy and happiness to anyone.

So I say follow your heart, follow it to the joys and happiness that the world can provide and live in that space. The more self love and respect you have for yourself the more others will have it for you. Also the more you are in a constant state of joy the more people will recognize that and want to join you in this joy. At the end of it all your heart will never lead you astray and you will be able to fall asleep each night knowing that you made the choice to live a more happy and positive life that day. Follow your heart, it will love you for it, and so will you.
