There are moments when everything makes sense, when you wake up with a clear mind and a settled heart. Then there are moments when sense seems to blur, your focus becomes scattered, and you’re left in a state of utter confusion. There are moments when you have to grow up and make decisions, there are moments when you have to be honest with yourself, and there are moments when you have to trust your gut. Sometimes these moments happen all at once. Decisions, good or bad, have to be made, made with confidence and gusto. Experience makes a person. Passion and dedication can keep you going but you shouldn’t waste effort on anything that you are less than passionate about.
“We all have an inner voice, our personal whisper from the universe. All we have to do is listen — feel and sense it with an open heart. Sometimes it whispers of intuition or precognition. Other times, it whispers an awareness, a remembrance from another plane. Dare to listen. Dare to hear with your heart.”
