“Why do we have to listen to our hearts?"

“Why do we have to listen to our hearts?" the boy asked.
"Because, wherever your heart is, that is where you will find your treasure.” 
― Paulo CoelhoThe Alchemist

♥ my cozy home ♥ ... before i was homeless.
    I have now been on the road backpacking, hitch hiking and couch crashing for just short of three months.

    I knew when I left it was something I had to do. Some times we don't know why we have to leave.  We just do.

    In the past week I have been having dreams almost nightly. Being away from home has helped me to realize quite a few things. Things, maybe, I was in denial about. Things I need to emotionally toss out the window. Things about my personal life that I probably would have not realized.

    How is it possible to be in such a great place as Germany and be slightly sad almost everyday when I wake up?  Maybe the treasure I now dream of was bluntly in front of me back home?

   I wonder if the treasure I dream of will be mine when I get there. Maybe some one else will have discovered my treasure and I will have been to late? I guess if the treasure was truly meant to be mine it will be.

    I will do my best to follow my heart where it guides me.  Whether it's back home to get my treasure or to the next foreign land so I may prepare for my treasure.


  1. My reactions to the post was not to be found among the proposed reactions so; reaction - I't moved me. Somehow I got the feeling that you lost hope but now, reading this, it feels like you somehow found it again - and that makes me happy. pusspuss //messmör<3

  2. Maybe following your heart all the time IS your treasure. And you will find treasure wherever you go that your heart leads you. It's worth a try, anyway. :)

  3. Thanks messmör! I think/hope you know I love you, infinitely. :*

  4. Yes Micki. Following the heart and listening to the gut are things I feel we suppress. Life is so beautiful when you listen to both. I miss you, probably more than you know.
