    I trust my emotions more

    than my reason at times. Don't get me wrong, I am also a rational person, educated, and usually logical, but when it comes to important decisions, if my gut feeling is going one way and my logic tells me to go another, logic will not win. For example, while we are not ready to...

    I Think I Know What's Right Around The Corner.....

    I listen to my gut instinct quite often, sometimes i just bypass it and stuff goes unexpectedly, Bizarre as this may sound, last year when i attended a funeral, i knew i would meet someone...that happened. This time, and i get the feeling (again) fairly soon, i am going to come...

    Not In A Crazy Way

    I have always listened to my gut feelings, or Fate as I call it. Here's an example of what I mean: On the college campus there's a set of bathrooms that seems to have magic around it. I'll never encounter someone while I'm in there, but I have to go when Fate tells me its empty...

    Most Of The Time

    And when I don't, I usually wish I had listened to my gut. For instance, I didn't listen to it recently and it appears to be biting me in the butt. Oh well, not the first time. But this time does surprise me, big time.

    For A Living!

    Personally, I really do make an effort to pay attention to what my intuition is telling me, and sometimes I must admit I do make a right mess of it.  But I keep trying because I believe our bodies know a lot more than what we're cognizant of.Professionally, I would be out of...

    Most of the Time...

    I should listen to my gut more often though! It's rarely wrong. When I first met some certain people, my gut feelings were to not trust them. Something was seriously off... yet, my feelings of wanting to believe the good in people made my nagging insight go away. I must change...
