    If I Had Followed My Head....

    ...I'd have stopped this years ago at 'Hello'. I wouldn't have gone for drinks with someone I'd met once before, I wouldn't have kissed him goodnight and I wouldn't have carried on seeing him despite his wife. I also wouldn't be a teacher, or an artist. I'd have taken up a...

    To Feel Is To Know, To Think Is To Mess Up What I Feel

    My heart guides me, telling me everything I need to know. It is not about what I see, hear, or touch, it is about what I feel. I trust in my heart, for I am rarely wrong. The mistakes I have made have been when I have let my mind take over where my heart left off. My heart...

    The Up Coming Ride

    So, things have happened. You know, the kind of things you could never forget? Like, maybe the first time you got kissed on the cheek. Or you let a balloon go over the ocean. Or when you had a pregnancy scare and then your soon-to-be-ex-girlfriend says to you, 'Sike!'In any case...

    I've Always Let It Lead Me ...

    My heart has led me down many roads.  Some of them risky and sometimes very damaging. But, no regrets.  I can't look back on any decisions and regret the outcome.  All the challenges I've faced, all the problems - they all make me who I am.  If I had made...

    Movement Of Heart

    It's a misconception that following one's heart makes you seemingly wild or radical. My heart is a calm-natured thing, happy with simplicity, and content to follow her dreams. She likes reading books, traveling solo, and having really good conversations with one or two people...

    I Will Follow My Heart

    Simply because not following my heart would lead me to do things I will later regret. I do not wish to live with regret. Sometimes, it is difficult accepting what my heart wants, but perhaps this is just my mind talking. The mind can be a useful thing, but it tends to get all...

    Always Have Done, Always Will Do.

    I always listen to my heart. Even when I think it's wrong because in the end, it's right. Whenever I decide not to, I regret it. I then hear my heart say knowingly, "I told you so".

    Following my heart, is something that I strive to do in all things, all though my mind often protests. When I follow my heart, I know it will not always be an easy ride, though I know that it would be harder in the long run, not to follow what my heart tells me to do. Often...

    I follow my heart every chance I get. I haven't been very fair to my heart in the past few months because I've been hurt in some heart wrenching ways and I was afraid of it happening yet again. I have quite a track record when it comes to getting my heart broken. Regardless, I...

    I Can Only Follow My Heart

    It isn't possible for me not to follow my heart. I can not do it. It's not only that I would hate myself, I feel like a robot, as if my humanity is slipping away. Being forced to do anything does that to me, and school does that to me sometimes. I am told to write a paper about...
