    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...

    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...

    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...

    I was wondering if anyone could share their
