Tune In and See For Yourself

How many times have you ignored your instincts?  You know the little voice that tells you something and you dismiss it.  The gut feeling that says yes; or it says no and you do the opposite.  How many times have you pretended to hear nothing, only to find had you listened, your day would have gone much differently?  For me, it always results in a learning experience.

I have been trying to “listen” better which means when that little voice is chirping, I try to follow it.  This morning, I ignored the chirping and sure enough, my day turned into a circus as a result of one fleeting moment.  It was a “so this is happening” kind of day and then “how do I get out this awkward situation” set in.  There are days when I listen and there are days when I say, “nahhhhh”.  I need less of the latter and more of the former.  Admittedly, I am getting much better at tuning in and listening, however, everything can always be improved!

Although my day was quite a circus, I was reminded of my ability to tap dance and just totally wing it.  It comes in very handy when things go off the rails as I always manage to surprise myself.  Come up with an impromptu plan “B” and see what happens and just go with the flow.  You have to be able to do it in life and plow ahead. And in these moments, I just tell the truth and see what happens. A level head and honesty takes a person far in life, in my opinion.

How many times have you said ‘My gut was telling me…’ and you either listened or made another choice?
