Everything Happens For a Reason

If your heart is just a muscle that pumps blood through your body, then why does it feel like it's shattering within you when something bad happens or feels like it's going to escape through your chest when when you're escatic?
I'm a very emotional, expressive person who is a hopeless romantic, who may have fairytale like dreams, but I believe they will come true. I also know that everything happens for a reason. Because without the storm, the sun would not shine as bright.
The heart is like the ocean, forever changing, moving and growing....
With every wave that crashes on the shore, to every storm that sweeps the sea... a tiny emotion dapples the surface, a rippling effect flushes through your heart and your entire body until you are overcome by a feeling.
We are sometimes torn between our heart and our head. Mr Brain speaks with reason, logic and intellect whereas Miss Heartbeat sings with emotion and passion, two voices that clash somewhere in the bottom of your stomach that makes you feel sick when trying to decide what to do.
I am often torn between these two voices, each just as valuable as the other... however I believe in life, the ultimate goal is to be happy, and you obtain happiness by doing and getting things that you truly want and desire which are the notes that often flow from the heart.
My heart is still young and growing. I'm still figuring out who I am, who I want to be and what I want in life. But I do have big goals, dreams and aspirations and though the path to happiness may not always be clear, I follow my heart and I know I cannot get lost.
Being away from home, my heart has experienced the coldness of the darkest depths of the Pacific to the warm, shining tides of the Mediterranean, but I feel that each experience helps your heart grow and learn, making you stronger and wiser for the next wave you catch.
As Eleanor Roosevelt said, "You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself 'I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.' You must do the thing you think you cannot do."
I have so many big goals and dreams I want to achieve. And I know I can. And I know it won't be easy, it's not supposed to be.
In this moment, a wave of motivation floods through my body, as I ride this wave who know where it will take me, what paths I will cross, who I will meet and what I will do, but I know it will be an adventure and my heart leaps out of my chest at the very thought.
