Follow Your Heart

The following is an excerpt from the weekly mailing of one of my closest friends, Karen Rowinsky.
This will resonate with everyone, but particularly with artists.

Follow Your Heart and Intuition  

"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. 
Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results 
of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions
 drown out your own inner voice. And most important, 
have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. 
They somehow already know what you truly want to become. 
Everything else is secondary."                                                                                                            
  -Steve Jobs

The world has lost a treasure. Steve Jobs was a creative genius, 

a visionary,Steve Jobs and above all, a wise and compassionate man. He had much to teach us. Of all the quotes posted on the internet, in his many tributes, I like the above.

So many times our own inner voice is drowned out by others; our loved ones', our friends, our leaders, or even people we don't know who shout their views through the media. Faced with the volume and amount of opinions of others, we often lose our confidence in our own values, beliefs, ideals and ideas.

Self care is about trusting, listening to, and honoring your heart and your intuition. The next time you doubt yourself, think of Steve Jobs and his courage to listen to his inner voice. 

Karen is a gifted therapist and one of my closest friends.
She lives in the Kansas City-area.  She is a member
of my "chosen" family.

  1. It was nice to get this in my in box this morning from Karen. She always knows just the right words to say on any given day. I appreciated this so much today. Send the main quote to one of my kids, about listening to your inner voice.
