Keeping Your Heart Open

There is something to be said about running and getting the mind moving. Thoughts can get lodged in your mind without a clear direction or way forward. When your body moves, your mind does too. What gets transformed is your thoughts become a collective whole and brings clarity into your life.

Thoughts become goals and then you feel it in your whole body to take the next step. Either a small step forward or a giant leap into what you truly want for yourself.

Once you allow your heart to open up for new ideas and new possibilities, you can’t close that door. Your heart already knows even if your mind is stuck and trying hard to rationalize you out of moving forward.

Listen to your heart. Listen with the knowing you can make the changes you want in your life and live fully in what you’ve dreamed for yourself.

It won’t be easy all of the time. You’ll be faced with fears, shame or self doubt. Remember, this is not your heart speaking. This is your mind keeping you locked into the everyday, because it is safe.

Resist the urge of staying the same.

Resist staying locked into outdated ideas.

Keep your heart open and act bravely into a new sense of self.

You’ll truly uncover what is at the heart of you.
