The ‘Conscience’ That’s Tired of Being Ignored!



Conscience – an inner feeling or voice viewed as acting as a guide to the rightness or wrongness of one’s behavior.

We all have one! Not all of us respond well to our conscience and what it tells us to do in every given situation.

The ‘Conscience’ has been given to us, by God, I believe, to caution us and to stop us from making a wrong decision, as well as to convict us in the event that we do.  At times, our conscience leaves us feeling good and at other times it can leave us feeling badly. There is a reason for that!

The question becomes this; how do we respond to the tug of the conscience? We are definitely free to ignore it or to listen to it. We can delay its message to us or we can flat out disagree. None the less, we won’t be able to shut it up!

The ‘Conscience’ is there to help us adjust ourselves and our thinking. If our conscience convicts us of doing wrong or responding negatively to something, we need to pay attention to it and make the necessary adjustments.

There are some who wrestle with their conscience. They refuse to take heed to it and they wrestle with the convicted feelings that have been stabbing at them. This isn’t a good thing. Never wrestle with your conscience!

Admitting to oneself that the thing you are about to do and say is wrong or destructive may be difficult, but if you follow through on a negative action, your conscience will get you! You try to shove it away and dismiss it, all the while lying to yourself. You know that your conscience is trying to guide you into what is right, but you just won’t listen to it.

I have no sympathy for those who ignore their conscience. Eventually, they’ll hit a brick wall and suffer the consequences for their actions. By then, they deserve whatever comes!

There is nothing more beautiful than when your conscience leaves you feeling free, elated and glad! The outcome of your action may not make everyone else happy, but you’ll have peace of mind because you have done the right thing. After all, each person has to be able to live with their conscience and at the end of the day, sleep with it too.

Don’t be fooled into thinking that the longer you delay the proper response to your conscience, that you will eventually stop hearing its prodding. Honestly, you cannot ignore it! It will always resurface, and when it does, you will have bigger problems! The task that it has been calling you to do will become harder the longer you wait.

The conscience that is tired of being ignored, will implode, and go through violent compression. I have witnessed the aftermath of a person who refused to listen to their conscience. The pain and distress that they experienced was devastating to watch. There was no comfort for them. Their regret was a mile long. The spill out affected other people. The casualties were great.

There are only 4 more days left to 2016. Let us all be mindful to not ignore that inner voice.  If our conscience call us to swallow our pride, let’s do it. It will benefit us in the end. If it assaults us because we did the dastardly thing, make things right with whoever the right is due. If our conscience leaves us in peace feeling great, wonderful, we will reap the harvest from it and add more stature to our character!

Making 2017 A Year To Be Proud Of!



How was 2016? Was it all you had expected it to be? Did you set goals? Did you reach those goals? Did you grow emotionally, and spiritually? What will be different in 2017?

There is one thing life has taught me and it’s this; in order to see change, you must do things differently than in the past. You can’t keep doing the same thing in the same way and expect to see change.

It is also important to set realistic short term goals, and long term goals. I don’t believe in making resolutions. They usually tend to fall by the wayside two weeks into the new year.

Write your goals down on paper. Set a strategy in place with all of the things that you will need in order to achieve them.

Be prepared to drop a few individuals whom you’ve been carrying. Keep the people in your circle that have proven to be of help, support, and who have been an encouragement to you. Don’t waste energy on relationships that are not giving you what you need in order to grow and expand mentally.

Be disciplined and diligent in your quest to reach your goals for 2017.  Decide now how you will handle those days when you absolutely want to throw in the towel and give up. Work out a strategy now for staying on track no matter what. At times, we can be our own worse enemy.

Align yourself with people who are achieving their dreams. If you don’t know of any such persons, start reading about anyone who fits that category.  Hearing about other people’s journey to success is a great motivator. Read up on everything and anything that has to do with what you are looking to do. Take a couple of classes if necessary.

Confront your fears and your worse nightmares. Sometimes they are only illusions. Keep in mind that anything worth doing is not without difficulty. Roll up your sleeves and do the hard stuff. Hard work really does pay off and besides that, it has never killed anyone.

Learn from all of your past mistakes and blunders and aim to avoid them in the future. Share your ideas and dreams with people who will respect them. Sometimes you have to keep your mouth shut with what you’re doing. Not everyone wants to see you succeed! Everyone is not in your corner!

Have a prosperous and eventful New Year! Enjoy the journey and all of the exciting and wonderful things that can come your way! Embrace meeting new people and make it a year you will be proud of!
