    Early Warning System

    Better than anything any techno geek can come up with - your body has a multimillion dollar early warning system. It's called gut instinct and when it's tripped: that's how you get the fight or flight response. I didn't always trust me instinct the way I do now. I learned quickly...

    They Know

    Sometimes it's not what I want to hear, but they always know. Always right when something is amiss, or wrong, or off.  Always know when something will be okay and that things will work out for the better, too.  Always know a good thing when they feel it.  They...

    They've Helped

    My instincts are, usually, right. I know when taking my tests, especially in French, my instincts really helped and I was able to keep near the top of the class by going with my instincts. They really do help when learning new languages. Well, they help me anyway!

    The Best

    I "go with my gut"; my first instinct. When I don't I usually regret it.

    I Trust Them About People

    We all are around people so much that we notice when someone is acting strange. We might not be able to articulate why, but they give us a weird feeling, we're usually a bit hesitant about them. Today I went to the gas station with my fiance to pick up some crackers and 7 up...

    I'M Deaf To Mine Sometimes

    I could have spared myself a lot of pain and misery if I had just listened to my instincts. My instincts have saved my life at least 10 times but when it comes to other things I'll ignore it. I really need to stop doing that. I trust them it's just that I'm conveniently deaf to...

    They Are There For A Reason.

    Instincts to me are there to protect us. To help us give ourselves a warning before jumping into a bad idea, a dangerous situation, a risky event. I have always trusted my instincts. If I had wanted to take a class and decided that I would, but when I'm about to choose it...

    Instinct ??

    There are 4 types of person in this world : 1. The person who knows, and knows that he knows. He is wise, so consult him. 2. The person who knows, but doesn't know that he knows. Help him not forget what he knows. 3. The person who knows not, and knows that he knows not. Teach...

    The Truth

    Strange But True
