There is a fine line...

...Between entitlement and pride.
...Between love and lust.
...Between confidence and arrogance.
...Between annoyance and hate.
...Between fake smile and real smile.
...Between adoration and love.
...Between complaints and gossip.
...Between exhaustion and apathy.
...Between admiration and jealousy.

I believe it's the logical side of you that reveals reality and helps you understand which path to take, and help define which side of the "line" you should be on. However, I also believe it's your heart that instinctively tells you which path to take, sometimes without rhyme or reason. It's the "heart" concept I have always struggled with.

I consider myself a very logical person: I think in advance, consider all the options, and develop a logical plan that is best suited for all parties involved. This can be a good and bad thing. Luckily, I have enough people in my life who are opposite -- and can continually stretch and challenge me to follow my heart opposed to my pro/con list. For example, I may or may not have once made an excel pro/con list for a guy I dated. Filled with characteristic listings and a priority numbering system. Too much?

There is a distinct line between thinking with your heart and thinking with your head. I don't think one is better than the other -- it's all about determining the balance. Personally, I'm still searching for that balance...

Making a pro/con list for a guy...funny.

Making it on excel...funnier.
