Thankful for Being Rewarded for Nudges to Inspire Future Action, Music Helping Create the Right Action, and Pausing to Take No Action

Day 2,235


There have been two past teachings that rang loud and clear for me today. Both ultimately say to take action, especially a kind action, when we feel nudged or compelled to. It is so easy to brush off the sensation and not act, to take action means intentionally making something happen which normally would have happened, taking on extra tasks or work. When we take those actions we are nudged to do we often don’t know exactly if it was worthwhile, we just have to trust that it was. Once in a great while we learn the difference that action made and it powers the soul to listen to that nudge more often. Today I’m grateful for those reminders, as well timed as they often are.


Towards the end of my drive home a song flashed into my brain that perfectly fit the theme of my thoughts. Winners & Losers by Social Distortion.

There’s saints and sinners
Life’s a gamble and you might lose
There’s cowards and heroes
Both have been known now to break the rules
there’s lovers and haters
The strong and the weak will have their day
We’re devils and angels
Which one will I be today?

Are you happy now with all the choices you’ve made?
Are there times in life when you know you should’ve stayed?
Will you compromise and then realize the price is too much to pay?
Winners and losers, which one will I be today?

Social Distortion: Winners & Losers

It was the motivation I needed to take the right action. Thanks for the guidance Mike Ness!


Today presence was found in pausing to think rather than reacting. My natural tendency is action, problem solving, or working towards completion. Instead of going on autopilot I paused and was present in the moment. I took time to consider the right action and am still considering the right next step. I’m glad I paused and stayed in the moment rather than just rushing through it today.
