I depend on my logic for everything. To make all the decisions, to decide what is right and wrong, to know what to do next, to figure out what I'm feeling.
Logic is good. However, logic can be a little too black & white. Logic lacks feeling, lacks emotion, lacks risk and adventure.
The only adventures I've had were planned and safe.
I live by my logic, but I envy those who run with their heart. Travel the world. Make mistakes. Try all the new things and do so openly. Those who jump before looking.
I associate strongly with the character Spock. Half Vulcan, half human. I feel like he represents my inner struggle.
When I let my heart lead the way in something, I question every move with my logic. I simply don't know how to let go.
I recently bought a guided journal. This notebook features beautiful art coupled with quotes and prompts to guide you through self-exploration.
One of the pages asked to think of an issue that you've been approaching with logic and to see what that would look like if you followed your heart instead.
I wanted to write my life, but it was overwhelming to think of how I could have lived differently. So, I just wrote about my current inner dilemma. I found out that following my heart scares me. That I need logic to feel right. So, while I'm on a mission to let my heart take the wheel, I don't want my logic left behind. I want it in the passenger seat.
