You hear “Follow your heart” over and over again. “Follow your dreams!” “Never give up!” All this is true but one thing people don’t talk about is…. what if your heart has a change of ….well…. HEART! Our lives are ever changing, we are ever changing, and our hopes and dreams and goals are ever changing. I have seen it time and time again. People follow their hearts and their dreams but somewhere along the way something changes and their hearts lead them another way. Along with that can come a lot of guilt and shame… “I thought this is what I wanted!” ”What will everyone think?” “Who am I if I’m not what I thought I loved?” ”Who am I if I am not who other people think I am?” The list goes on and on and it is one that I am very familiar with. I have always followed my heart and it hasn’t always been easy. In fact sometimes I beg for my heart to just stick to one thing but it is not my path. I have always envied those who found their passions and follow it all the way to their dying day but I am starting to realize that it is just as valid to honor your heart wherever it takes you even if it is in several directions. It is never giving up if it truly is in your heart to do so. Re-defining yourself, re-inventing yourself, and re-discovering yourself time and time again is exciting and revealing of your true character. I have the upmost admiration for those who have pursued one thing and were defined by that only to decide that there is something else out there for them. It takes courage. It takes an incredible kind of person to jump into the unknown and find a new part of who they are. Cheers to change! Cheers to following your heart…..even if it changes.
