Brain vs Heart

Do our minds control our hearts, or is it our hearts controlling our minds?

Sometimes you just sit around and ponder the most ridiculous things, and now is one of those times.

It seems that now that I am becoming more of an adult, this debate is controlling a majority of my decisions and I'm really not sure how i feel about it.

I can't decide whether I should make sensible decisions, or if I should decide to do what makes me happy. Don't get me wrong, I'm not unhappy and lost at this point, but there are some things that could be easier to come to a conclusion on if I wasn't so responsibly logical.

Stay in Oregon and get a job, or move to Chicago and try to figure it out there? Cut back on spending and stay home more often, or go out and have a good time and worry about blowing money later?

(I realize these aren't exactly life's great paradoxes, but they are consistently on the top of my dome)

What makes it so difficult is that being fresh out of college is a great time to establish yourself as an adult and make focused, calculated decisions toward future success. But maybe it isn't really difficult at all.

Past examples would establish that I've always managed to have a ton of fun, while still being responsible enough to make good decisions that keep my life balanced and moving forward.

I think instead of stressing over it, I'll just follow my heart and let my mind catch up. Or decide in my mind to follow my heart. See how this is so confusing?

You'll figure it out Chris! I think the best thing you can do is stay positive - you have bright future ahead of you, whether it's in Oregon or Chicago, you'll do something great! My vote goes to Chicago!
