Pondering

When it comes to the matters of heart v. head, I'm wondering if when I look back on the life decisions I've made if I will regret them.

I always seem to follow my head instead of my heart. I fear years down the line when I look back I will be wishing I had done otherwise.

Are roadblocks and set backs put in your way to make you work harder for what your heart wants? Or are they a sign that you should be choosing a different path entirely?

With love,

  1. I'm not sure if I should answer this one. I think it comes down to whatever you can make it. I think sometimes we do both, other times we wish we would have done the other. I don't think roadblocks are there to make you struggle, but maybe to make you think. In the end I say follow your heart, you'll be happier. (except maybe when you really really want those $400 boots and your heart says do it, then maybe it's a good idea to listen to your head that says don't!!) Not sure if that helps, makes it worse or even makes sense! Just wanted you to know I'm listening....

  3. What a great post Becca!

    I always seem to follow my heart over my head. But like you I wonder sometimes if I'll someday wish I had done the opposite.

    Roadblocks and setbacks are not a sign that we've chosen the wrong path, but that we're on the right one. Had you not had Anthony and Molly life would probably have been easier. You certainly would have freed up more time and finances. But at what price? How would your heart feel? These two gorgeous children are proof that you followed your heart when it mattered most.

    Whatever drives us, logic or emotion, the roadblocks will be there. They'll just take on different forms. The obstacles you've encountered so far in your young life have shaped who you are today. They've made you stronger and more mature than many women twice your age who have had it easier because of the lessons you've taken from them. If life is too easy you're playing it too safe.

    If in your twilight years you can say you like who you've become, that you loved with everything you had and were loved in return...there will be no room for regrets.
