The Heart Don’t Mind


The Heart Don’t Mind


Mind: You drive, I’ll get the GPS set up on the Bluetooth so we won’t get lost.

Heart: How can we get lost going to the neighborhood grocery store? (sighs) I swear you over think things.

Mind: I over think things? You don’t think enough always going with your gut feeling. Will you pay attention to the road, Chanel said turn left here.

Heart: Who is Chanel?

Mind: The GPS dummy. You know everything has to have its place and purpose. Chanel’s purpose is directions. Any more clever questions?

Heart: I don’t know how I got stuck with you. I mean what is your deal. You always complain about being lonely, but when I find a good match, you find a way to sabotage it. You are truly a piece of work.

Mind: I do not sabotage anything, you pick wrong people, plain and simple. I want someone who is educated, handsome, rich, powerful, and did I mention rich. You have yet to meet any of my prerequisites. Sometimes I think you don’t listen to me.

Heart: You’re right, I don’t listen to you because you are just plain
foolish. Your wants or desires in a man are superficial and empty. The men I try to find are God fearing men. Men who respect women. Men who love their mother’s. That is what you should want also.ย I forget since you’re the mind you think you know everything. Well, mind, I am the heart and without me, you be lost. We need to be loved and we need to have someone to love. Those material possessions you spoke of, we will never agree on.

Mind: Yeah. Whatever, I think you missed the turn.


Just a daily conversation between the heart and mind driving each other crazy.


Todayโ€™s Prompt:ย Write a post based on the contrast between two things โ€” whether people, objects, emotions, places, or something else.

Remember those โ€œcompare and contrastโ€ essays in composition class, in which youโ€™re forced to create a clunky juxtaposition of two arguments? Just because that particular form was a bore doesnโ€™t mean that opposition has no place in your writing.

Bringing together two different things โ€” from the abstract and the inanimate to the living and breathing โ€” creates a natural source of tension, and conflict drives writing forward. It makes your reader want to continue to the next sentence, to the next page. So, focus on your two starkly different siblings, or your competing love for tacos and macarons, or whether thoughts are more powerful than words, orโ€ฆyou get the idea.

Todayโ€™s twist: write your post in the form of a dialogue. You can create a strong opposition between the two speakers โ€” a loversโ€™ quarrel or a fierce political debate, for example. Or you could aim to highlight the difference in tone and style between the two different speakers โ€” your call!

    Interesting take of a heart and mind conversation. I don’t think one has to win over the other. Both are just doing their best.

    The age-old conflict between heart and mind. In the end, I guess, the key is striking a balance between gut feel and logic.

    What a novel, dare I say unusual approach to day 6’s challenge. I’m still pondering how to approach the topic. I just wish I’d have dreamed up your way first. If I were a teacher I’d rate you top of the class.
