Listen to instinct...

I know something has been nagging me lately, and I just haven't felt WELL.

Having run-ins with doctors, teachers, clients...I am reminded again and again of how important trusting my instincts can be. If something doesn't feel right, if something seems off...guess what?! I'm going to go with it because chances are my instincts are telling the truth. And trusting these instincts and following through with the promptings I am given can be a tough choice to make, but it's one that I will go with [despite your books, and your wisdom, and your research]--I will go with MY GUT.

Whether you call it mother's intuition, gut feelings, listening to your inner self or your conscience, or the whisperings of the Holy Spirit...all describe one thing: guidance for your actions. And my intuition is telling me something is not right. Maybe YOU are the one that needs to "listen".

My new mantra for this month (and possibly for the rest of my life):
“A few strong instincts and a few plain rules.”~ William Wordsworth

  1. Funny you should mention this, because it is a lesson I have been learning over and over and over again recently. I'm getting better at listening to my inner promptings even if they're as simple, as "pick up some extra toothpaste." They always serve a purpose, big or small. :-)
    Hope all is okay with you.


Oh come on-- the least you can do is say HELLO!! You didn't come all this way to turn around and walk away, did you? DID YOU??
