SATURDAY SAYINGS: FOLLOW YOUR HEART


Last Saturday's new feature on sayings and quotes was a huge success, and I got an overwhelming number of messages and comments saying how much you liked them, got inspiration from them and wanted to see more! So...Saturday Sayings is staying put! Woo Hoo!!! :)

This week it is all about following your heart and how important it is to remember that this is your life and you should always stay true to yourself, what is important to you, what you believe in and to listen to what your heart is telling you along your journey in life.

It is now quote time...

The Little Prince Translation:
"One can only see well with the heart. The essential is invisible to the eyes."


Ultimately, we all continue to grow and learn along the way, and one thing I have learned with age is the importance of speaking up, being honest with your feelings and knowing what is okay to feel the way you do. You have to choose what you can live with and what you can't, what is okay with you and what is not, which is, of course, different for everyone.

In the end, we will all leave this world, and my only hope is that I am above all else remembered for being a good person with a smile on my face! Hopefully, I will have brightened the lives of others, treated everyone with respect and showed kindness and compassion throughout my lifetime.

What do you hope you will be remembered for in your lifetime?

Along with following your heart goes following your life's passion and dreams, whatever that may be to you, and something I haven't done to my full potential as I watch those around me reaching theirs. I don't often talk about those types of things on this blog or in life, and try to always stay positive, especially since we can't go back, but Saturday Sayings allows a bit of space for that, and next week perhaps I'll touch upon it along with some quote which reflect just that!

Stay tuned, feel free to offer suggestions of things or situations you may need some inspiration for and have a Super Sunday ahead! :)
