Desire Of the Heart vs. Mind

November 14, 2013 — 1 Comment

If you’re hungry, you’ll eat.

If you’re tired, you’ll sleep.

I remember my dad saying these things when I was a kid. I think for the most part it’s true unless you have an eating disorder or are participating in a contest to see who can stay up the longest, I kid :), at least about the sleeping contest. Anyway, now that I’m grown I think about this from time to time when I believe I have a desire or goal, especially when I can’t seem to do what I need to do to attain it. An obvious one would be getting in peak shape. If I applied this simplicity to this goal it would be something like,

If you want to be fit, you’ll eat clean, workout 5 days/week, and drink a gallon of water each day.

It’s so simple, right? Well, I was browsing fitness articles the other day after agreeing to enter a fitness competition with my cousin next Spring (that’s right, you heard me) when I found this article on wanting with your heart vs. wanting with your brain. It’s a fascinating article and it’s clear to me that this woman is on the other side of the goal I want to attain. If you have a few minutes, I’d love for you to read it and answer the same question she asks her readers.

I want you to tell me, when have you had something shift from being a brain want to a heart want?

How did that want make that shift?  Leave a comment below.

Oh, and I added this gallery of photos from Hawaii because it made me think about hydrating vs. dehydrating. It’s another (small) battle of the mind/heart.
