Follow your heart, yes, but when to know what’s really your heart and not another game of the mind?
Following your heart is tuning in to what makes you feel most alive, no matter what that is, if you could be doing that without being paid, for hours, without thinking when it’s going to end, but wishing that you could be doing that forever, then that’s your purpose. And it doesn’t have to make sense for anyone else but you.
Your purpose can, may and will change. It’s called growth and evolution!
For me following my heart has taken me to travel around the world, trying to understand why I had so much hunger inside that nothing seemed to fulfill, my mind wandering, and my soul guiding a path that I couldn’t see clear but took the first steps and here I am. In London, writing a blog, growing as a person and becoming the woman I dreamed of.
Following my heart has taken me to experience life and open my mind to new dimensions, being courageous enough to walk alone and learning to think by myself.
Following my heart was messy in the beginning, I didn’t know what would happen but my strong desire to conquer is guiding my steps and I am grateful because the plan is bigger than what we can imagine.
Why you should follow your heart?
Because you aren’t born to settle, to limit yourself to the walls your mind is trapped, because there are limitless experiences out there for you to enjoy and it’s all in your hands.
Because you aren’t born to be mediocre, to fit in, to be normal.
Because you have life in your lungs and you must fight for that life like it’s the end of the world.
And it really doesn’t matter, the main point is challenging yourself to make something happen. Little did I know that from the moment that the idea of the festival came to me it would become a reality.
That’s how it works, you set a goal and find ways to make it a reality.
It could be doing a course, changing your habits, starting a fitness journey, grabbing a backpack and exploring Asia, telling someone that you like them, quitting a full time job to pursue a passion, starting that side hustle that could bring you more money than you could have ever imagined, moving to a new country…endless possibilities!
- Write down a list of things you would like to do and start right now to work towards making them come true.
- Be willing to get out of your confort zone and learn new things.
- Erase the “I know this already”, “been there, done that” from your head because every experience is unique.
- Let this sink in you: fear is an illusion and this game is for you to win and grow into your best self!
