Matters Of The Heart November 30, 2011

No matter where I go, what I do, or who I am with, it always comes down to one thing. Is my heart happy??

I have been a seeker on a journey, an explorer sailing the wild seas within myself, and a warrior of the daily battles that tend to happen inside my head. I may not KNOW much, but I do know that at the end of the day, nothing matters but love. Nothing matters but acceptance. Nothing matters but the Spirit. There is no greater Source than the one within us.

So why can it feel so hard? To be happy that is. Why do so many of us struggle to “find” it? Can it really be found? Perhaps not. Perhaps happiness is like all matters of the heart. It simply exists all the time, and it is always available to those who choose it.

How do we choose it you say?

We choose it over and over again, every time anything but love or but happiness is lurking in the background, and we choose it and we choose it, no matter what, until it becomes our default mode.

Tonight I am thinking of old friends, old lovers, old memories, old ways of life, and really feeling so much I haven’t felt in a long time, but I am ok. I miss pieces of them, but I am still ok. I am always ok if I choose to be. 

As I look ahead I stop myself, and I come back to this moment. I do what matters to my heart. I engage in matters of the heart, and I speak up about how I feel and share it with you. This is how I choose my happiness. This is how I choose love.  Thank you for being here with me.

I love you,

Erin

 

Erin’s Adventures- “Food, Entertainment, and Paris!” September 5, 2009

Well, I’m feeling really inspired. I just saw the movie Julie and Julia and it was absolutely amazing. I’ve been feeling a longing for travel and some adventure in my life, you know…a bit of an escape from my everyday routines. However, since I am not able to jet off on a plane right this moment, I decided to loose myself in a movie for a couple hours instead, LOL. I have had the travel bug for a while now and it is creeping up on me BIG TIME, so I was very grateful that the movie gave me a little trip to Paris and a visit with some of my favorite things…FOOD, ENTERTAINMENT, and EUROPE:)

You see, when I started this blog, the main reason for it was to express with my readers, all the adventures I take in my life (hence the the blog address ErinsAdventures.wordpress.com). Whether it be adventures in Fitness, in Spirituality, with Food, Traveling the world, or Exploring Art, Self, and Love, I want to share my experiences with you in all of them! These are ALL the things I love and feel very passionate about. As I have mentioned in my fitness blogs…it is very important for one to be following their heart if they expect happiness, joy, and freedom in their lives. This is something I cannot deny and will never try to in my own life. Fitness is a major part of who I am, but I am made up of many other things that truly make my heart smile as well.

Today I made a decision. That I would continue to keep you all posted on my journeys and adventures with fitness, as well as my explorations and adventures outside of fitness. I plan to have at least one date with myself each week. I have been told this can be called an an artists date, and whether that be a trip to the museum, a couple hours at the movies, going to see a play, or taking a road trip to somewhere, it is a day in honor of some part of me that has the right to be validated and nurtured, and expressed, and that is completely separate from the fitness part of  me.

I also plan to travel the world, blogging about the food, the art, the scenic paradise, how I stay fit and healthy through it all, and how my dreams continue to unfold in the process of me following my heart and true, inner nature. Today I went to a movie, and it was the best date I have had in a long time. I look forward to a second date with myself next week. Until then, I will be blogging about all things fitness:) I hope you too, are with me on this journey, exploring and following your heart and souls most passionate desires. Here’s To Your Health!!!

A fun tour of the streets in Paris and it’s finest foods 🙂 Bon Appetit!
