Follow your heart

Follow your heart

The heart is the center of attraction in the human body. It is the point where blood is pumped to other organs in the human body. An amazing piece of creation, the heart, remains the most intriguing part of the human body.

Apart from the fact that the human heart beats more than 100,000 times a day, it also pumps more than 1.5 gallons of blood every minute. This adds up to 2,000 gallons of blood in a day.

These statistics tell the amazing story of the human heart. An organ that helps to keep an individual alive. If it stops pumping blood, the entire body system becomes starved of blood and shuts down after a few minutes.

An important aspect of life is the role of the heart in decision-making. Resident within every individual is the unique ability to get prompted each time an important step is to be taken. These prompts usually emanate from the heart.

Some 12 years ago during a concert, a professional singer mounted the podium and sang one of her hit tracks. The entire hall stood up and started clapping after she finished her song. Everywhere was buzzing as people were excited by her beautiful voice.

A few minutes after she was done with the song, an old man from the audience beckoned on the organizers to allow him to sing the same song. After much persuasion from the audience, he was allowed to sing.

He sang the exact same song, but this time, the audience was all weeping after he finished singing the song. The difference was: The professional singer sang from the head. The old man sang from the heart. The old man was able to touch the heart of the more than 6,000 people that gathered at the Grand Arena in Accra, Ghana.

In all you do, always follow your heart, because it will always guide you through the perfect path. Sometimes, we get carried away with human emotion or what others say or do and end up making the wrong decision.

I love what popular Rihanna said: “I always believed that when you follow your heart or your gut when you really follow the things that feel great to you, you can never lose because settling is the worst feeling in the world.

Maz Jobrani also echoed the same sentiment when he said, and I quote: “Follow your heart. Do what you love. Because I was constantly struggling with that. If it’s in your heart, go for it. Do not listen to other people”.
