Life is too short not to make decisions with the heart. Still, sometimes our mind and our feelings cloud our perception of what it is to follow our heart. And there are times when our heart seems to be silent.
Take, for example, the simple task of losing weight. There is no question that by the standards of the BMI charts, my body frame needs less weight on it that it has. When I frame things that way, I need to lose weight. My mind is clear–there are rational parameters that say I must lose weight. My feelings, however, are mixed. I used to be really really thin and fit the strange canons of beauty that magazines seem to promote. Problem is–I was constantly sick and I had no energy. So my feelings are mixed on the issue of losing weight. And now to the heart. I am simply unable to listen to what it is saying…there is lots of chatter in my brain, so much so that I can’t easily follow my heart.
Has that ever happened to you? If it has, a coach can be the right person to help you discern what your head and your heart are saying….
Life is Amazing! Live Well.
