We don't want to think about the mistakes we have made because we were foolishly following our head instead of our heart.
You know the heart is the most wonderful part of the body and yet we don't listen to it enough.
When that girl/guy comes into our lives, we want to follow our heart but in reality we are following our minds. Our minds tell us to overlook those little things that would otherwise bother us with any other person. Our minds will tell us that "he is just a messy person" when in our hearts we know, he just might be lazy.
When your mind tells you that you can't write that novel, what does your heart tell you.
If you have had that nagging pull, small ache in your chest whenever you think about picking up a pen or opening up your tablet/laptop and then you don't. That would be your heart telling you that you need to follow it.
Our heart will lead us to where we need to be. Our heart is the thing that will tell us to follow our dream, even when our mind and sometimes our friends, are telling us not to.
I listened to my heart about five years ago and now I have two published novels and working on numbers three and four. If I had listened to my head, I wouldn't have taken that step. Instead I followed my heart and I can say that I am so glad that I did.
I dare you to try it, with anything that you want to do. Follow your heart, you will be amazed.
