Day 251 – Trusting The Gut

5 HUGS, 2 children, 3 adults (1 husband, 1 UPS driver, 1 neighborhood friend)

I try to trust my gut on most decisions in life. Occasionally though, I let my brain take over. Bad decision. Why do we let our brains get in the way of what our gut has to tell us? Do we think we are smarter than our instincts? How could I possibly ever have enough knowledge to override all the information that my gut already knows? Sometimes, call it ego, call it sheer will, I think I know better. Yet when I rely on my gut for decisions, it has never steered me wrong. The same thing can’t be said for the decisions that I make with my brain.

I have recognized lately that I am moving too fast. When I move too fast I don’t give myself enough time to listen to my gut. That takes time that I don’t feel I have especially around the holidays. I need to make that time. I need to slow down. Each decision I make from what I am going to eat to what kindergarten I want my son to go to need to come from my gut. I will make healthier, better, more informed decisions this way. Not only that, but I bet I will find that I even have extra time I didn’t have before. So far I have loved the directions that my gut has taken me in life. So, come on gut. What more do you have in store for me?

Please accept this blog as my virtual hug to you.
