Anytime you anticipate taking an action, a feeling generates from it. It could be a nervous feeling, which could be a good thing or bad. It could be a hateful feeling. It could be a loving feeling. It could be an angry, happy, or sad feeling.
Pay attention to what type of feeling that you are sensing to the action that you are taking, the action you’re thinking about taking, or the re-action that you are contemplating. The feeling will communicate to your mind which is the right path.
This is why it’s good to pause for one second before making a decision and think, “Will this lead me to feeling better about the situation or circumstance?”
You could end it right there. You don’t have to take that instinctual response. You don’t have to experience those sad or angered emotions. When you embrace the negative, you will stay in the negative mode until you flip around the situation by cheering yourself up somehow.
When you choose a positive or happy feeling, you can flip around the negative situation. Look at the bright side of things. How can I feel good out of this current circumstance that I am in? What’s the best thing I could do to make myself feel good about this? What can I learn from this experience? This shifts your mood to a positive state.
Your guidance lies within you in the form of feelings. Recognize them, embrace them, and take the action that feels good. Your heart will lead the way.
