Let Your Heart Lead...

Let Your Heart Lead...

"To know what you prefer
instead of humbly saying Amen to what the world tells you you ought to prefer,
is to keep your soul alive."
- Robert Louis Stevenson


What does your heart go out to?

Yesterday, while in a specialty shop, I heard a sweet voice across the way exclaiming glee. When I followed to the source of joy, I found a tiny 18-month-old clothed in delicate femininity; she had already hooked a soft bright yellow duckie purse, it's price tag dangling, over her ruffled sleeve. I bent down to ask her if she liked the duckie purse more than a pink bunny purse hanging close by. Her deep chocolate eyes and gesture of more tightly clutching the duckie purse spoke volumes to me. Children, unmarred by decades of marketing influence, seem far closer to knowing their heart's desires... and, more so, they are willing to stay with their desire. They understand more about leading with your heart...

Today, you might follow the little girl's lead to distinguish and then stay with your heart's desire... 

Who knows, you just may find that Chanel has nothing on a duckie purse...

About Me

My photo
I have always been inspired by my Grandfather's particular generosity and encouragement, along with his love for others and nature. His spirit lives on, and the influence is quietly with me as I write and share. This is my small offering that I pray will bless others and allow them to become Simply Inspired. warmly, karen -xok.
Each day provides its own gifts.
