the science of following your heart


“Wherever you go, go with all your heart.” ~ Confucius

Life is short…too short, it seems. And we should never place ourselves in a position of looking back with a wondering regret.

Instead, we should always and everyday, find that one thing that makes our hearts smile big.

And when it is that we are lucky enough to find it, grab it tightly and never, ever let it go again.

And don’t let that brain get in your way, with those silly thoughts of ‘what might they think’ or ‘how will I know’…tell it to hush with its annoying chatterings of the ‘can’t’s, the ‘shouldn’t’s, the ‘wouldn’t’s and the ‘no’s.

As a matter of fact, when it is that you become so forever blessed to finally find your dream, don’t be afraid to follow it endlessly and forever (or at least until the end of that rainbow).

Follow your heart, today, and all days and then, let the whole world know.

Life is short, so where will yours take you today?


“Let yourself be silently drawn by the stronger pull of what you really love.” ~ Rumi

  2. […] What prevents us from sharing so fully of our heart, mind, and spirit? […]

    So where is the science? I don’t think that word means what you think it means. . .

  4. Tara says:

    The title is not intended always to be literal… and you maybe correct about science, but I will wager I know more about the heart than most I know. With due respect, and *namaste*…

  8. […] Living your storybook life means following your heart, being yourself, wearing flats when your feet hurt, saying no in front of millions if your heart isn’t truly in it and not getting seduced by the thought of your name in a top-selling magazine where it doesn’t belong in the first place.
