Explaining My Avatar

My avatar is a representation of what I hope to achieve. I can never find the balance between my heart and my brain. I take both into consideration, but one of them always wins and take over. As Clarissa Pinkola Estés said “My brain has no heart, and my heart has no brain. That’s why when I speak my mind, I appear heartless and when I do what’s in my heart I seem thoughtless.” I would like to dream and go with my heart but the my brain comes and brings me back to reality, telling me that what I want isn’t realistic, that I am going to fast, that it will be to risky. Sometimes I ignore my brain and let my heart win, then it get hurt and stops for a little, time goes by and then it forgets. Other times I let my brain win, I let it take the ‘realistic’ route, yet I still lose, I feel like I have missed out. That is why I need to find a balance or else I will never find myself. I will fall into space, I will be stuck there. I might change it, I am a very indecisive person, I will never find a balance, but space is beautiful and I wouldn’t mind just staying there.

  1. Hello Estefany,

    I loved the idea you wrote about. It is the first time I have seen the diagram you used to show the balance between thinking and feeling. May I use it also? How did you come across it? It provides a very visual depiction of what you describe as the balance we need to have on a daily basis. If we don’t we fall, or rather we might fail! It is most certainly a balancing act.

    When you wrote “always wins and take over” The word should be takes, with an s. You have several times you use the word “to” when you actually mean “too”. The last sentence would be better served by either using semi colons or periods for each thought.

    You might have caught those errors of you had re-read it carefully. That is why I have had to hire an editor to read my dissertation that I am about to submit next week. It is sometimes hard to catch your own mistakes.

    I look forward to reading more on this blog!

  2. Amazing job explaining and putting heart into it. Reality will sometimes bring us down but our heart put us up!! Can’t wait to read your next post:))

  3. G’day Estefany,
    Wow, such great thought put into what you will use as an avatar. I wonder where you got the image from as you have not given attribution to the owner as far as I can see. Week 3 of the challenge looks at images, videos and music – what you can use legally on your blog as it is out in the public for anyone to read.
