Listen to your heart

In life, we have options at
every step. Choices that we have to make at every step. Simple choices
like the ones for the food we eat, the clothes that we wear, the places
we go, the people we are with! We have choices for almost everything.
But there are things for which we do not have choices and we have to
accept them the way they are. Simple choices are easier to make, but at
times even simple choices put us in dilemma!
If simple things turn
out to be so complicated, what about the choices that make or break our
life? What about the choices we have when are about to journey to a
different stage of life. Choices are indeed difficult. The choice of a
career, the choice trusting someone, the choice of your life partner,
these may make or mar your life. When life gives us so many choices,
sometimes we take things for granted and treat people or things that are
important to us as just choices. We take decisions based on the current
trends rather that what is best for us. We follow what others do, we
follow what others ask us to do.
We listen to our friends when
they tell it’s cool to do this or that. When it comes to careers, our
parents ask us to decide the stream we choose depending on what the
neighbour’s son or daughter did. We forget that each of us as
individuals have been given the power to make our decisions.
We tend to ask others what to decide. While it okay to take others
suggestions into consideration, it is we who have to decide what we want
to do. Others can only give us directions, but cannot hold our hands
and take us on the path. It is we who to walk the path.
We tend to
follow what others do as it is easier to do what others have already
done. But we forget that we are unique. What worked out well for others
may not work out well for us. We tend to think a lot of things and
silence our inner voice which tells us what is best for us.

There
maybe times when others decisions may have proved to be advantageous for
us. But for how long are we going to depend on others? For how long are
we going to make choices that are not our own. Isn’t it time for us to
make our choices, choices that matter to us? Isn’t it time to stop
following the herd and find our own path in life? Isn’t it time to
listen to our hearts and journey on the unknown, less trodden path?
There are times when the situation demands us to take quick decisions. What do we do then? We rely on our intuitions rather than others opinions and listening to that inner voice within helps us.Sometimes answers to certain
questions may not be easy to come by. There are times when the decisions
we make may not prove to be right initially. But wait, have patience.
Whatever your true inner self tells you to do,do it! No matter whether
it is right or wrong, you’ll be responsible for it! Listen to your
heart!

  1. Your post was a great reminder that we need to follow our intuition and make our own choices. As the mother of teens, I see them struggling with career and education choices that are biggies. It takes a lot of courage to follow your intuition and not the well-meaning guidance of your teachers, friends or family.

    I do try to, but sometimes it's not always easy to follow your dreams!

    1. reemwrites says:

      Yeah it isn't easy. Most of the times things which are actually supposed to be done are never easy. But we can at least try rather than giving up.

    And that's exactly what we should do, listen to your heart 🙂 The others may be satisfactory for the time being… But listening to your heart makes you happier in the long run! Good one, Reema 🙂

      Thank you Aathira 😀

  6. True that Reema. Each one of us have to make our own decisions. People can only stand by us but we have to walk our miles on our own.

      Yeah 🙂 Thanks for reading 😀

    I have tried to listen to my brain…but ultimately I always go behind the heart. But of late I have realized that life is all about the perfect synchronization between the heart and the brain..The brain gives the cons of something while the heart gives the pros. I like to reason it out 😀

    1. reemwrites says:

      Yeah Red! But whether we listen to heart or mind, ultimately it is the brain that decides 😛
