Listen to Your Heart

According to modern Western culture, February is the month of love. And although there are conflicting opinions about St. Valentine's Day I love celebrating it because of its positive vibe. Love, acceptance, togetherness, hearts... Don't you think that if you could listen to your heart a bit more often, you could turn your whole life into a big, fat and absolutely unforgettable Valentine's Day?

So, this month we'll talk about how to listen to your heart and how to follow it. Often, if you chose to actually hear your heart you will be forced to step out of your comfort zone and discover new lands of inspiration, which is even better.

While there isn't a special secret thing you should do to learn to listen to your heart, there are a number of ways in which you can train yourself to notice its signs and follow them. It might feel strange at first but the more you converse with your heart, the more natural it will feel.

If you feel uncomfortable, scared and confused it means that you have stepped out of your comfort zone and are ready for exploration. The mere fact that you are reading this post means that you are ready for a change.

A life with your heart as the closest companion is certainly worth living. I officially invite you to a month full of stories, explorations and inspiration.

Listen to your hearts!


  1. I think we can all learn to listen to our hearts more often but most importantly remember to show the ones we love how much they mean to us everyday. A smile, some kind words and a surprise here and there is enough to really show someone you care :)


    1. You are right Tanya, thank you for stopping by!

  2. I love this article...Ever since I became a mother and then a stay at home mom, I have had the time to live closer to my own heart beat and away from the rest of the worlds. This has led me to many wonderful paths of creativity and away from the idea that we are only supposed to be one thing in life.. or be identified by our work identity...We are much more complex beings that that. Also, I think we "get" the life we want when we " give" more of who we truly are to the world creatively and freely.
    Hope all is well Sonya!!!

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Deb! Wise words. I found out quite the same things after I started spending more time at home with my family. Isn't it funny how our "public" life keeps us from the real us?

  3. February sounds like it is going to be a great month. I am looking forward to you posts. Thanks!
