What sets you on fire?

What gives you that warm feeling in your chest?

What lights your chest up?

One of my favorite parts of CW’s Jane The Virgin is how they show when a character is feeling love–they literally create a heart over the character’s chest, glowing red and pulsing.

To me, it’s the perfect represenation of that feeling of fullness in your chest when everything just clicks and feels right.

It’s not limited to romantic love, though that’s likely one of the most common occurences.

I’ve had it when I write something that I’m really proud of, when I’ve traveled somewhere breathtakingly beautiful, and when I’ve really connected with someone (or they make me laugh so hard it hurts).

In those moments, I feel like I can be truly me.

Those are the moments I want to chase in my life, and I think you should too.
