Empowering Tip: Follow … you

Today’s quote is a little long, but it’s great. It was written by an amazing poet named Mia Hollow, and I found it on a site called Raging Rhetoric, which also has a Facebook page.  Mia & Raging Rhetoric are both really cool, you should check them out!

But on to the quote: “Every now and again, you will feel a dull ache in your soul. A gentle humming around your heart. A longing for something without a name. If I ever told you to obey anything, this would be it. Listen to the call of your authentic self; that part of you that lives just outside of your own skin. Let it have its way with you. I have died a hundred times trying to ignore it.”

Wow. Powerful. And this can be taken many different ways. I take it to be about instinct, about following what you want and need. You don’t always have to follow the given path; you need to follow your heart, your soul. You need to fulfill what you need to fulfill – which isn’t always what other people think you need to do.

Be true to yourself, always. Never be pretend, or fake, don’t put on a front because that’s what other people want you to do. Listen to yourself, your instincts, your heart & soul. Be your own person, follow your own path.

Otherwise, you’ll end up unhappy, and somewhere you don’t want to be.

Follow … you.
