dream do you hold for your life? How
committed are you to bring it into being?
It's hard for some of us to believe that we're on this planet to seek our own happiness. We've been taught that this is selfish.
If we stop to reflect, however, we can see how this serves. When we're happy, we have more vitality. We're much more positive in our outlook. And best of all, we're more loving and generous to others when our own needs are met.
So when are you most happy? What represents 'bliss' to you? We're talking passion here, and passion comes from the heart. To set goals that are meaningful, we need to go to our hearts. Our heads tend to tell us to do what we've always done, what we think we should do or what other people want and expect us to do. Our heads tend to tell us that our dreams aren't realistic. But our hearts can tell us clearly how beautiful our lives can be.
How do you listen to your heart? Give yourself space, time, peace and quiet. Ask your heart a question. Be willing to be open and to listen for feedback. Your heart's desires may come in different forms at different times. The answer will be what you WANT to do. Always pay attention to how you feel and go for what feels good. If there's no desire and excitement for you around a goal, it's not coming from the heart. Go for more.
