4 tips on how to deal with the heart & brain battle

When it comes to your dreams, your passions, follow your heart. When it comes to matters in dealing with friends, family, lovers, this is where the heart and brain begin to battle. My advice to you, from past experiences, listen to the brain.
I pride myself on my cold and calculating personality when it comes to making decisions. People who know me very well changed my middle name from Ann to Asshole. I’m okay with that. Once in a while, my heart will melt. I am human. When it does melt I’m kicking myself in the ass every time! It only happens once or twice a year, thank the Heavens for that!
The heart feels. The brain foresees. The brain knows the negative impact you will endure after the action you were contemplating is completed.
You will thank your brain in the long run, instead of second-guessing your action and feeling like a fool for following your heart.
When you’re contemplating an action which is based on feelings, never;
  1. Make that decision when you’re feeling vulnerable,
  2. When your mood may be a little out of balance.
  3. Be patient and wait it out.
  4. During the wait, meditate and visualize the outcome you have chosen or what you want to happen
That wait and visualization will be the best thing for you.
I recently experienced the heart and brain battle. I felt that my seize the moment may have past.  This was a heart moment. I thought I may never have the chance to say how I felt and what my intentions were. An affair of the heart.
I was able to think through the outcome of my intended actions. I decided that my actions would’ve had a negative outcome.
There will always be that what if question. That reoccurring thought of the unknown. These will pass.
You’ll thank me in the end.
Never cut a tree down in the wintertime. Never make a negative decision in the low time. Never make your most important decisions when you are in your worst moods. Wait. Be patient. The storm will pass. The spring will come. ~~ Robert H. Schuller
