Following your heart

It's funny how we sometimes are constantly chasing dreams in life, or always needing a sense of fulfilment in material things that are mostly of temporary value, and that will never really provide a complete fulfilment and satisfaction that the heart really requires. Making decisions in life can sometimes be so daunting that we're so afraid of taking that risk that we're willing to sacrifice our happiness because of fear of the unknown.
Life is just too short not to be able to take some of those risks, and sometimes we realise that when it's a bit too late.

Sometimes we just have to take the plunge in life and go with the heart, because the voice of reason always interrupts and righfully so, but sometimes it prevents us from reaching for that unknown that might just be the answer that we've always been waiting for.
I, personally, feel the need to go with my voice of reason, because it's the most sensible and logical thing to do, barring the true and inmost feelings of my heart, which at some point in my life makes me realise that I could have lost out on some priceless opportunities.

It's not too late to realise that your heart could actually be the voice of reason sometimes, even though it may be late with lost chances, especially with matters of the heart. It just takes that little bit of courage to go with that heartfelt and inmost feeling and you most realise it when you lose someone precious in your life.

So, when lifes buzzer eventually sounds, there should be no space and time for regrets and "if only's.."
You can have everything in life, yet you can never really have it all.


  1. "You can have everything in life, yet you can never really have it all." Yeah, just think where would you keep it?

  2. Dear M.o.S, I'd go with my heart and make corrections along the way. Its all part of the exciting adventure of life.

  3. Dear M.o.S. Thought of you when I heard these words:
    When will I see you again?
    When will we share precious moments?
    Will I have to wait forever?
    Or will I have to suffer and cry the whole night through?

    When will I see you again?
    When will our hearts beat together?
    Are we in love or just friends?
    Is this my beginning or is this the end?

  4. Very profound! Thankyou for sharing your lovely quotes anonymous.The heart is an amazing and wonderous organ, full of awesome surprises, don't ya think?

  5. Dear M.o.S. Thank you for reminding me today that it was all real and meaningful. Every living moment of it that made me feel the joy of being alive and loved. Moments that are indelible and abide in our hearts forever. Moments to bring out of our heart's treasure chest when life's path is worn out by the routine and the mundane. You inspire me.

  6. A women's heart is as deep as the ocean... true love is a treasure of the heart, for a lifetime.
