I read a quote somewhere....but I don't know who the author is. It said: " I follow my heart, literally. My heart gives me directions via morse code hidden in its beats, and I follow them."
This accurately describes what I have done. Followed it wherever it led, whether it lead to a dead end or to the stars! Followed it through obstacles, walked on hot coals for it, cried for it. But wherever it led me I learned things - things that helped me move to a brighter path.
