Sometimes nothing dramatic or crazy has to happen in order for you to realize that something isn’t right. It’s not screaming nor is it overwhelming but rather that subtle consistent feeling somewhere inside of us that says, “No”.
I have to think that most can relate to what I’m talking about because it’s something we deal with on all levels from the most insignificant to even the grandest of scales. It’s that feeling we all look back on and wonder how things could have been different if we would have only obeyed its direction. I once heard a quote that I’ll never forget, “The good is the biggest enemy to the best”. A lot of the times we think that doing things our way will lead us to the things we want and the happiness we desire. I have found though, that even when that feeling doesn’t make sense it’s the very thing that could have saved us. It’s the life jacket we refuse to wear, the stop sign we choose to ignore, and the door we refuse to close.
If any insight could be given, it would be to stop pushing aside that feeling, even when it might look good. Why sacrifice what could be the best?
