Your feelings don’t matter.

I felt like posting a piece, this was yesterday. I didn’t because I just didn’t feel like it and it never happened. Heaven knows my heat was there, and my intentions were good.

It dawned on me though, that intentions don’t mean much, it is what you do that counts, the graveyard is full of talented people who meant well but their names are not remembered because they never did anything significant.

The world remembers people who do, who act, those are the miracle workers. Sometimes it just doesn’t feel right, because the sad truth is - your feelings don’t matter.

In as much as we are emotional beings, those emotions are usually what get us in trouble. Never let your emotions replace your thoughts.

There are many opportunities I passed on because I didn’t feel like it and when I think about it, I feel like crying.
