“Sometimes no matter how hard you try to fight it, the heart wants what it wants.”
Before you read this and think this is going to be a sappy post or an ode to a certain Selena Gomez song, I ask you to stay with me.
Do you/we really know what our heart wants? I don’t mean in the sense of love or the kind of person you want to spend your life with. I mean in the sense of EVERYTHING. Adventure. Fun. Happiness. Experience. And yes, still love. We are so focused on realizing what our hearts want when it comes to that special someone, we forget all about the other things our heart, and soul, “crave.” Let me break it down…
After going through a break up earlier this year that, yes, I totally downplayed as a thing that “was for the best,” I realized so many other things my heart and soul want/need. Other than happiness, I find myself wanting to experience a new sense of adventure. Traveling, new experiences, new beginnings, finding those things that help me find my purpose on this Earth. My mind is a constant hamster wheel of so many possibilities. I also find that I think less about what I am looking for in that special person and more of what I can do or want to do to make myself my own special person.
But, with that comes the “I can’t”, “I don’t have time”, or you just simply brush it off until your mind brings it back to the service. It’s a constant circle of do, don’t, what if and what can be.
What would this world be if we all followed our dreams or went in that direction our heart, mind and soul were pulling us into? We are capable of so much more than just work, eat, sleep, repeat. Now, if that 9-5 is what feeds your soul and mind, go for it! Everyone is different. That is what makes this world so special. If that 9-5 is not what feeds your soul, what can you do to change that? I want to see the endless possibilities in everything.
I don’t know how, when or if I will ever find my “special.” But I do know I will do everything I can to find it, create it, love it. And maybe after that, is when I will figure out that the heart really does want what it wants, per Selena Gomez. But for now, my heart just wants me. The adventures I make. The happiness I plan to create.
