Following your feelings. Period.

Yesterday I wrote about following your feelings through praise and blame. I read the title again and thought, hey wait a second! … I should follow my feelings, PERIOD.

Lately, I have been thinking a lot about a decision that can potentially change my life, hopefully for much better. There are no guarantees of course, but I feel like I need to take that chance… That’s my feeling. I should just follow it.

Every day, things happen to confirm my need for this decision. The message is clear. My feeling is right, I know it deep down.  Yet there are certain elements that are making me hesitate. The feeling is still there though, stronger each day. I should just follow it.

Do you sometimes feel this way, where you’re undecided but your intuition is strong and you know deep in your core what the right path is? But instead of diving head first, you rationalize against it… you hesitate… you take your time to decide to make sure it is indeed the right decision.  That’s what I’m going through right now.

I have given myself permission to deal with my fears, with my hesitations and my attachments to the old before jumping into the new. I am only human and in order to learn from the experience, I need to deal with these issues.

I am making a conscious effort now though. I will take a bit of time to deal with the situation with a strong emphasis on following my feelings. Period. :)

    I know exactly how you feel, I have been there many times in my life.

    What’s that Nike / Lance Armstrong quotation – it’s actually more like an exhortation.

    “Just Do It”

    It’s funny but every time I have “Just Done It” I have survived, things didn’t always go as planned and sometimes it opened up new roads to explore.

    Action beats procrastination every time.

      Isn’t also Ready Fire Aim? I agree with the Just Do It… thinking too much makes us give in to our fears. Thingking is good but only when there is a clear goal in mind and an intention to overcome fears and obstacles! I’m seeing it in my life now! Thanks Peter!
