She said I should follow my heart, and that made me stop and think because mostly no one has told me that. And mostly I always figured that what I should do is not follow my heart, but instead to follow my head. After all, that would be the smart thing, the logical thing, and therefore the best thing. But then again, life isn’t logical or smart, so maybe that’s why following my head hasn’t seemed to work for me so far.
Not that anything is easy as all that. I’ve read enough of the old fairy tales to know that following your heart leads you down a twisty path, strewn with rocks and crumbling walls with no clear sign of where it might lead. There’s certainly no guarantee that it will lead to all your heart desires. But then again, following your head down a path away from your heart isn’t likely to lead to that either.
So what the hell, right?
