Have you ever felt guilty for something feeling so right? After analyzing the emotion of guilt, I realized many may feel the way I do. When my husband comes home and I am in shorts, t-shirt, messy bun and never attempted to put my makeup on for the day, I have feelings of guilt (self imposed), but I feel a bit guilty. I always attempt to explain my accomplishments from the day, but the feeling tends to persist. Therefore, I took time to meditate and my answers were clear. Hope you enjoy today’s thoughts or message, it has been an amazing realization!!!
Have you ever wondered what our lives would be like if Thomas Edison, Abe Lincoln, Henry Ford, Galileo, Albert Einstein, had followed the rules? Or basically been of the norm? In other words they and many others followed their own path. Thank Goodness!!! Anyone who has accomplished great things, to improve life for future generations, has followed their own path. They have not worked 8 to 5, but rather based on inspiration. Time was a component, but only for their benefit.
Just think if one of the greats decided, what am I doing? Maybe I should go get a J.O.B. like everyone else! Or why am I questioning this common way of thinking? I should take everything society has to tell me and accept it!! Wouldn’t that be a catastrophe? What if they felt guilty for standing out or working on a path others did not understand? However, we know now they didn’t bow to the harsh demands and judgement of society and we are thankful today!!!
Believe it or not when you are on the right path, for you, when you are creating it doesn’t feel like work. There will be times you will stop and question yourself. However, when those not so feel good emotions creep up think what if? What if I stopped this creative process and followed in everyone else’s footsteps? What if great people, who left a legacy for us all to reap what they sewed, had decided they shouldnt be so happy. What if they stopped in midstream and said, “I feel too wonderful to continue. I shouldn’t feel this great about my work! I feel GUILTY for following my own path!”
Doesn’t that sound ludicrous? However, it happens on a minute to minute basis. If you are creating and on a different path than everyone else around you, guilt creeps in and it becomes simple to stop and jump into the stream of ‘main.’
If you relate to this message…PLEASE DO NOT ALLOW GUILT TO DENY THE REST OF US YOUR WONDERFUL TALENTS AND LEGACY.
Let it go! Continue to follow your path of least resistance. Find your bliss that never feels like work and focus on how you can implement your happiness into every situation.
You have a great deal to create, share and pass on!!!! Just leave the emotion guilt out in the rain and welcome in freedom, kindness, love, and creativity. Who knows your legacy could change the world to a better place!
