For me, deciding whether or not I let someone or something go all comes down to heart. What is my heart telling me?
Now, I had to find ways to sort through all the riff-raff in my brain that was distracting me in order to actually hear my heart. And break through all the shoulds and coulds and years of being a people pleaser. But running, the right diet, and meditation, all helped me get to where I was thinking clearly, not second guessing decisions, and doing things that were right for me. Not because I was trying to please somebody.
The wisdom of our heart runs deep and once I started trusting what my heart was telling me and taking action in my daily life, feelings of peace, joy, and love grew exponentially.
Some of us are more in touch with our hearts than others so getting to “the heart of the matter” may take longer for some. But in my experience, this has been the best way to discern what to shed in my life and is the best investment of time I’ve made thus far. Once I found my heart, I found my purpose.
So If you’re not sure what your heart’s telling you, hang in there and know you’re not alone. Start with the intention and the answers as to how to get in touch with your heart will be revealed.
