Where is your treasure?

Wherever your heart is, that is where you'll find your treasure.
- Paulo Coelho

I don't know why it is so difficult sometimes to know/find where our heart is. However, when I read the following from Steve Jobs (Entrepreneur Apple co-Founder), I see clues...
"Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.

Don’t be trapped by dogmas - which is living with the results of other people’s thinking.

Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice.

And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become.

Everything else is secondary.”

And as for Paulo Coelho (quoted at the top of this post)...after many years of having his greatest desire and love thwarted by parents and other opposition, he finally found the courage to be a writer, as he had always wanted to be.

And as for me and my heart . . ."we" are painting. ;o)
