The Heart is our core. The centre of us. We often reference the heart when talking about love and romantic feelings. But I think of the heart as so much more.
It is our processing centre for a breadth of emotions. For how we feel about ourselves, our capacities and risk adventures. For relationships and family and friends. But it is also where we process our values and life purpose. In these instances, the head and the heart work in tandem as we work out what we believe and how deeply we believe it.
Our Heart was not meant to be ignored. Irrespective of how vulnerable it makes us feel. Or how subjective it leaves our decision making. For there is a knowing, an internal knowing, that good decisions are made up of more than for and against lists. There is an element of ‘how does this make me feel?”
And that is a response that only you and your heart can make.
