Trust your heart if the seas catch fire, live by love though the stars walk backward.
I stumbled across this quote on one of my layovers. I was on a 10 hour layover in Richmond, VA watching a movie. Layovers like this do not give you time to enjoy the place so it was a time of relaxation. As I watched the movie one of the characters stated this quote. After the movie I proceeded to look it up and discovered how much I enjoyed and related to the quote. It has now become one of my all time favorite quotes.
Follow your heart no matter how tough life gets and don’t be afraid of taking chances. I have always believed that your heart will lead you in the right direction and that at times it is smarter than your brain. Trusting my gut or my heart has always lead me to either a new path in life or a lesson learned.
When I decided to become a flight attendant I did it because something inside of me told me to do so. I have never looked back on my decision. I am a risk taker, I follow my heart and always love with all my heart. Of course at times some of the decisions that I have made have led me to disappointment but, they were lessons learned. I realized that those actions were not my heart speaking to me but, my mind altering what my heart truly desired.
The toughest decision/risk that I have taken to this date is moving to Atlanta, GA. I left my entire life behind me, including my family and friends. Although they all supported the opportunity that I was given I spent all my time worried about them. Little by little this move has taught me more about myself than I have ever imagined and that no matter what everything will fall into place. I am more comfortable in my skin and have begun to put myself first. Although I miss those I love I no longer spend all my time worrying. The struggles I have encountered being on my own has made me a tougher person and happy being me!
Take risks and follow your heart no matter how rough that road gets. There is always a meaning behind the decisions that one makes.
“Trust your heart if the seas catch fire, live by love though the stars walk backward.”
This piece of writing is about how I made a new beginning when I moved to Virginia. It's like I was saying good bye to the life I knew and opened this door to something frightening. I wasn't sure what was going to happen. Everything in my heart told me to panic, but then somehow, I held my breathe and took a step forward into my new beginning.
I always felt trapped by what I thought I had to do. I mean I was terrified but after I actually did it, I felt so liberated. It didn't even take that much either. Just a little bit of bravery. I wrote this in hopes that it would inspire others who might be on the fence.

"If you always put limits on everything you do, physical or anything else, it will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them."
Some words to get you through whatever it is you have to get through.
"The world to me is broken without you. If you stay with me, I feel like I can finally be myself in this messed up world. You hold the last pieces of my puzzle to put my life altogether. If you are gone, what will I do? Don't ever go. I don't know if this is really love or such, but I know that without you, I'm lost in a world that I cannot understand. I wish I could always be there for you and you would always be by me."
I first saw him reading the same book that I had just picked up at the book store
