Following your heart is not always the easiest thing to do. When faced with big decisions, people sometimes have to make tough choices. One great thing about living here in the U.S.A. is our freedom. We have the freedom to follow our heart, if you will, in shaping our lives.
One great thing about people is how unique each one of us are. No two minds think exactly alike, and we all have different personalities. Our upbringing plays a role in how we make these choices, as does the environment we surround ourselves in. We can choose to be around people who bring us down, or people who lift our spirits.
I feel as if I am truly blessed with a great family. Although my life is far from perfect, I can feel thankful for the choices I have made so far in my life. I have made some dumb mistakes in the past, but I did them on my own free-will. I can honestly say I’ve followed my heart in most of those decisions. Don’t get me wrong, I definitely have a few regrets, but I can’t blame myself forever for past mistakes. I can, however, see how those choices got me to where I am today, and learn from them to better myself and my family in the future.
This ability to think for ourselves, and follow our hearts is a lesson that should be taught to each and every child. It’s not always easy to teach our children something we have difficulty doing ourselves. I encourage each and every one of us to make a serious effort in having a positive impact in all of our children’s lives.
This world is not always the nicest place, and sometimes a little positivity goes a long way.
