Follow your heart.
It's good advice to follow your heart. It's even better advice when we know that we weren't meant to wall off our heart to avoid ever sharing it with those around us. Hearts aren't meant to be focused on themselves. This is true of our physiological heart supplying life to the rest of our body. It is true also of the metaphorical heart that we're meant to follow. Life, both physical and metaphorical, becomes abundant when our hearts give effortlessly where it's needed. This week let's have a heart for those around us. And then, let's follow our hearts.
