Straight from the heart

It's funny how I was sitting here thinking of what to write when I received an email from Amy Lam. Through her blog, I've learned so many famous quotes and wise sayings. Today, she signed off her email with this:

Enjoy your blog as it comes from your heart... as the quote goes
Better to write for yourself and have no public than to write for the public and have no self.

That's so true. When you do something that comes from your heart, you won't go very wrong unless you have a bad heart or if you meet the wrong kind of people.

My friends know that I always follow my heart. Maybe that's why I've been told that I'm good with kids and dogs. I don't think it's because I have a special connection with them. If anything, it's because kids, animals and people respond well to kindness and sincerity. I don't normally analyse too much but I believe what goes around, comes around.

My easy going nature has given me the opportunity to meet lots of nice people. That said, I've come across manipulative people too but we learn how to deal with them after a while. Very often, I learn through other people's mistakes as well and know when to avoid potential pitfalls. Generally, being surrounded by good friends and family is like being buffered against the big bad world outside.

I'll end here. I find myself rambling today with no cohesive thoughts. Guess I'll just blame it on a dull Tuesday.

Wow, that's a very wise quote. I totally agree with it. It's better to feel free to write what and when you really feel like writing and to do it for yourself rather than writing to please others.
