The Truth About Your Heart


Your heart will fix itself
It's your mind you need to worry about.
Your mind where you locked the memories, your mind where you have kept pieces of the ones that hurt you, that still cut through you like shards of glass.
Your mind will keep you up at night, make you cry, destroy you over and over again.
You need to convince your mind that it has to let go... because your heart already knows how to heal. Nikita Gill

Your mind (ego) again, running the show.

The mind hangs on to everything from the story of your life, it wants to keep you on the straight and narrow. "Look before you leap," "Always watch your back," "Don't talk to strangers." etc. Often these are lessons learned and the mind does not want you to make the same mistake again, but what it actually does is instill fear in you. You are not paying attention to how you really feel, but reacting to a fear. You become afraid to try anything new or step out of your comfort zone. If you never take a chance or learn to trust yourself and KNOW that you are okay, you don't really live this life you have been given, but simply exist in fear.

"Your heart, on the other hand, doesn't want you to play it safe. It doesn't approach life with rational logic. Your heart wants to move boldly into the unknown. It wants you to have the amazing, awe-inspiring enlivening life possible, and that means doing things that totally freak you out sometimes. Things that excite, thrill and empower you." mindbodygreen.com 

This is something we all fight, head and heart. Who do we listen to? Your head will always put on the brakes, advice against, and keep the fears alive. The heart, says "DO IT! The only advice I have to offer is: if there is something you feel strongly about, something that you really want to do, what are you waiting for? This is your life, do what you want to do. 

"Feel the fear and do it anyway" Susan Jeffers
