Be True to Your Heart... and Follow It

"Follow your heart, but be quiet for a while first. Ask questions, then feel the answer. Learn to trust your heart.” ~ author unknown


A few years ago I finally started listening to my heart.  There is wisdom in each of our hearts and the importance of listening to one's heart and accepting the answers is vital to being happy.

Do you wonder about the depth of your heart? Do you let your heart lead the way, or do you usually let your head make the decisions for you? Have you encountered situations whereby your mind told you one thing but your heart said otherwise?

Do you feel happier when you follow your heart? Do you let your heart take you down a path where your mind would be against?

If you are one who wants to follow your heart but are fearful of the risks you'll be taking, I hope this poem and series of heart quotes will shed some light on the wisdom of your heart...  courtesy of

Be True to Your Heart
And Your Dreams Will Come True

Stay true to all your beliefs and goals.
Stand tall.

Through all life's setbacks and disappointments,
your dreams will come true.

When no one else is with you,
and no one seems to care,
just whisper to yourself,

"I am the controller of my destiny.
It's up to me what comes to pass,
and if I keep my thoughts positive and strong,
my dreams will come true."

When what seem to be impossible obstacles
stand in your way, just think of all the times
you got through yesterday.

There is a place for you in this world.
Stay on your chosen path.

All the power is within you;
be true to what is in your heart.

Be honest within yourself;
if you are, then you cannot fail.
Your dreams will come true.

  1. Unfortunately I can't do many of the things that my heart wants me to, because of my health, but that doesn't stop me too much! I tend to live by my emotions and feelings and really need to rein them in with my mind at times, you just can't trust them! But my heart, that's another thing. My heart is always with the girls, Phil, and anyone who is alone or needs help.

  2. just like they say -
    let your head bow to your heart.

  3. I have always been one to follow my heart...most of the time it has worked out...thanks Coreen for always being a kind kindred spirit and have such uplifting posts, to make us think!!~ I love that. XXX000

  4. I am trying to follow my GODS lead!

  5. I love the quotes with the mind, the eyes, the heart and reason. :D The usage of the words made me smile. :)

  6. So true Coreen. AND, when I find myself NOT doing what I think I should OR rather KNOW I should...I can be ALMOST sure it is a recipe for DISASTER!

  7. Beautiful quote an sentiments.;)
    I always follow my heart - it has taken me on incredible paths, not always easy and certainly many painful ones and I sure have gotten lost too, but it has given me travels that carry no regrets.
    The optimal would be to be able to combine the mind and the heart, but I have yet to master this talent.;)
    Have a lovely Sunday dear Coreen,

  8. Guilty!

    Many times I listen to my head and not my heart.

    I wish I were strong enough to follow my heart, but duties seem to get in the way. My dreams are just that, dreams.

  9. Very good thoughts. Love all the quotes, too!

  10. we all have a passion for listening to our head, often not for the right reasons, superb xx
