A lot of times we have to deal with the expectation of being completely rational in the face of everything.
But the roller coaster of life comes with the ebb and flow of emotions, and it's okay to be emotional and even irrational at times. Our mind provides the framework, but it's our emotions that paint in all the areas of our lives, making it vibrant, and sorrowful, and beautiful, and deeply meaningful.
Our hearts and minds can often seem like conflicting forces, pulling us in different directions. The heart yearns and the mind seeks. Even when we rationally know the path or even the outcome, it's okay to still be afraid, anxious, excited, insecure, or confused.
It's this duality that makes us human, makes our lives multi-dimensional, and makes the incredible possible. Here's the thing - it's perfectly okay for our hearts and minds to be in conflict sometimes. In those moments of emotional turbulence, remember - it's a testament to your capability and a reminder than you are living. Sometimes you have to hurt in the moment, to see the path forward.
There is a profound beauty in the eventual alignment of heart and mind. As we walk our paths, we learn, we gain wisdom and insight, and we grow to where the strength of our heart can be harnessed and guided by the wisdom of our mind. This is where we find our clarity, our purpose, and balance within. We become an architect within our own life, capable of making those decisions that resonate with your inner core of emotions and values, yet grounded in reason.
Embrace the crazy! It's part of your own unique journey. And trust that with time and effort, you will find that balance in life and in yourself and you will find the peace and wellbeing you seek. Be your authentic self, and stay true to who you are.
