My Heart Speaks Volumns

Yes, it does, it says it all. In fact, I think I have crossed over to my heart ruling my every thought, word and deed. I'm not sure this is a good thing, but I think it is...

Let me give you an example. Do you remember the post when I announced I would "Up & Quit" Val's Art Studio in favor for getting a job? A real job, working for someone else? Well,the suggestions came in. Yep, they did. Job suggestions for fantastic positions. So, what happened, you might be wondering? Well, my heart stepped in. It stepped right up to the plate, and made a demand on me. My heart took my face, and looked me square in the eyes, and asked me what the heck I thought I was doing. Here's exactly what my heart said: "Look, you. You have a gift, and you are FINALLY using it. And, it's working. You are HAPPY, you are CREATING, you are MAKING A DIFFERENCE. You are doing just what you were meant to do, so you need to stick with it. Even though you don't know where the path will lead, and even though you are unsure of what's next, you need to STAY the course, DON"T rock the boat, BE persistent."

So, ...okay, I listened. Yes, I committed. I am staying the course with Val's Art Studio, and, believe me, I am so happy about this. Yes, this decision makes my heart sing! Nothing has ever felt so right (well, since I decided to marry my amazing husband :o). So, I rented out our house. Um-humm, much to the dismay of our family, we are moving out, because our house can make more $ per month than I can. (So far!) My heart tells me this is the right thing to do. Our family will regroup, and refocus, and recommit too, during this time. My heart tells me it's time for this to happen.

I'm listening, I'm going with the flow, I'm sooo hoping I'm doing the right thing... Hey! Heart? Can you hear me?

Val, you are Brave and Courageous to listen to the truth in your heart. It's not an easy thing to do but it will make all the difference in the world. Your decision has been made so thoughtfully and over a period of time. I think as long as you know exactly why you made the decision when you did, you will never regret it. I'll always be in your court, Val, regardless of outcome.

Thank you, all of you, for the strength you offer me in your words. Wow, there's a power in words that can make me weep... Yes, my heart tells me the outcome will be good, and right, ...if I just keep following the guidance from my heart.
