The way is not in the sky. The way is in the heart.
Starting Over From Your Heart
Sometimes the seemingly worst situations are the best.
The job we just lost or the significant other that is now no longer significant.
These things when happening are horrible.
When we are caught up in the storms of life it is easy not to see the sun on the other side of the world.
But most often when the storms subside we see these things as a blessing in disguise.
We get a new start we may not be ready for, but with a renewed focus and a willingness to move on, we often find things that are so much better.
Challenges give us the opportunity to start again with new wisdom.
Listening to my heart has brought me to unexpected places, skills I never thought I’d have and relationships I wouldn’t trade for the world.
But I know it is difficult to do.
Remember every challenge makes you stronger than you were before.
Each challenge creates experience and experience is real wisdom.
Here are some thoughts about listening to our hearts and starting anew.
The best place to start is within our own hearts.
It’s below and behind our eyes that most of life’s answers are found.
Books are great starting points but it is our own common sense and knowledge of ourselves that will give us the best answers for us.
Besides, read enough books on any subject and you will soon find they contradict each other.
For example, if you read about health you will see that many doctors and authors recommend many different ways to lose weight.
The one that is right is the one that makes sense to you.
Take those answers you feel are right and make time to act on them.
Don’t let your mind and the perceived difficulty cloud the messages your heart will give you.
You know you are being clouded when your heart tells you the same things over and over but yet you fail to listen.
Sometimes listening is as simple as writing something down, where you will remember it and making time to act on it in the near future, if not now.
Take one step at a time and although the first step is the hardest, your heart will guide you even if you step back.
Start by taking the time to listen.
Let your heart be heard.
Find ways to let your expressions of your heart out.
That could be contributing to those in need or creating something.
The things we choose to do don’t need to reinvent the wheel.
It’s the little things that can make a big difference.
From writing a song or spending more time with your children.
Listen to it and act courageously in your pursuits.
A new start is your chance to do just that.
Let your heart grow.
Finding things you love by listening to your heart will guide you to more things you love.
As you find more things you love your heart grows.
It speaks louder because it knows it has ears that are listening.
It then becomes a better guide.
One thing will lead to the next and eventually life becomes filled with all that you love.
It takes time I know. but the instincts and messages we all get are there for a reason.
Try your best to listen to them and know they will continue to guide you.
Our hearts want to be loved.
Our hearts speak to us for a reason.
I think that reason is because there is something out there for all of us that will help us to find more fulfillment.
Our lives may be good or bad but the truth is they can always be made better.
It’s those little things, I mentioned earlier that stack upon each other.
To love our hearts or any other person we just need to listen and do what is in their best interests.
Starting over may just be the best place for you to be.
It’s a chance to start from the inside out.
From one of the best sources of love and inspiration we all have, our own hearts.
