Listen to our heart


The race was charted out in meticulous detail. There was Plan A, a Plan B; and a plan for when things went wrong as I knew they would.
But when I actually started running, my legs listened not to my brain, but to my heart. My heart knew the pace I should hit and the pace I should keep. My heart knew when to slow down, and when to keep going. My heart helped me run a race I never knew I could- turn in a time I never thought possible.
Why can’t we learn to listen to our heart?

oh, I love this. It's making me think of other things and the metaphor is just beautiful to me... I find it's almost impossible for me to run with a heavy heart, but if I force myself to do it, it somehow gets lighter. Usually. :o) <3
