"Golden Delicious-Number Eleven"

What exactly does "from the heart" mean?

When I google the phrase, I found that if an author is writing from the heart, it means that they are being sincere in their writings. If an artist is sincere in producing their work, what does that mean? Aren't we always sincere?
I've been thinking about this for a couple days now..... I know, not really very long and I'm sure it has crossed my mind before in various forms and phrases..... well, my niece received a manicure set for Christmas, she is 11 years old and she loves this "nails toolbox". Yesterday, she was giving everyone manicures and her cousin was helping out by giving everyone foot massages and pedicures. Quite a team those two, but watching them work, I'm pretty sure they were doing this "from their hearts", even if the polish went outside the lines.

 "paint from your heart".....   what does it mean....

What a sweet story JanettMarie....painting, writing, creating, and giving for that matter, from the heart... as your niece was doing me means done from love, and of the purest intent. I would give sincerity a similar definition, as to me both come from that pure unhindered by thought place within each and everyone of us.

I feel that something being done from the heart and with sincerity is what naturally occurs when we are most able to get out of our own way........oh, and by the way, I look forward to seeing your beautiful manicure....Love the apple, is this #11?
