Little Lessons(2) - Do What is Right


You know that feeling you get? That wriggle at the back of your mind?  That little, almost inaudible voice whispering, which asks Should I or Shouldn't I?  Some call it unease or doubt, some call it their intuition or sixth sense, but whatever you call it, it is a nagging feeling that grows ever louder the longer you try to ignore it and eventually it causes you so much stress that it seems to take over every thought.  We often hope that by inaction it will eventually go away without you having to take any action or make any decision.  The bad news is that often, by not making a decision, you actually do make a choice which may lead to consequences you are not prepared for.

Instead of ignoring it, try to figure out what that nagging feeling is all about.  What was it that triggered that feeling of unease or worry?  Take a moment to listen to your inner voice and pay attention to your intuition or sixth sense.  Write down your thoughts and those things which are worrying you.  Make a list of the possible actions you can take to resolve the issue and what would be the result of each one.  Then take action.  Do what you have to do.  Do what is right.  Right for you, but also morally right.  Let your conscience and intuition guide you.

A Life Lesson my sister taught me is:

YOU ARE NEVER SORRY FOR DOING THE RIGHT THING.
