What’s this stupid heart thing?

I hope you’ve enjoyed this beautiful Labor Day weekend! Feeling the sun on my face yesterday got me to thinking.

Everyone has a head and a heart (such as this band), but I have always been a head person. Logic, reading, numbers, facts, achievement, problem solving, rationality, credibility. But then many experiences, not all of them great, forced me to fall into my heart. It’s less stable there, but the rewards are much greater.

See, the heart doesn’t really care if I’m using lovebird-y cliches, or if I’m not getting my rational money’s worth, or if I’m experiencing so much joy that I make hyperbolic claims like “This is the happiest day of my life!” The heart wants to ask not just what’s new with you, but how is it new? What are you feeling? How can I help you feel even better? I also hope that the heart is going to make sure I thoroughly enjoy my successes without making them go… to my head.
