    The Universe Conspires To Help

    One of my favourite books ever is The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho, which is about following your heart. I just LOVE that book! (I've just discovered that Paulo and I share the same birthday). There's a quote in the book that goes: "And, when you want something, all the universe...

    My Own Heart

    I believe wholly 100% in following your heart (in most cases), yet I find it so difficult to follow my own. I've been working on that a bit the past year or so, doing things I've always wanted to, but never had the courage (or opportunity) to do, but there are so many other ways...

    How Do I Do That?

    When people say to me that I should follow my heart, or my inner "something", I always try to figure out how I do that. As if there were a how  to do list, but when we try to find a method for it, or define what it means, we are not following our heart anymore. Right ? Sometimes...

    Personally

    I was wondering if anyone could share their

    Follow Your Heart, But Don't Forget To Take Your Brain

    Many times in my life I neither followed my heart nor used my brain to make some decisions. I really don't know why I did what I did, but I'm sure it was based partly in fear and anxiety, or just giving up on finding the right person. Now I've learned what consequences those...
