your guts. my guts.

it's all about guts.

not really. it's about YOUR GUT. like your gut feelings. your intuition. instincts. whatever you want to call them. the hardest part i think, is really differentiating between what is a true gut feeling as opposed to what is just paranoia, or fear, or any other emotion? and i really think that you never truly know what it is until the whole thing is over. you know, when you look back at the entire situation and can see the whole picture. it's really hard to follow your gut when you're not 100% sure that's what it is in the first place. am i making sense?

basically, there are a lot of things going on in my life right now (no, not boyfriend related at all people- calm down). and there are things that just don't feel right. things i just don't feel good about. and i can't explain why. and i have NO reasons at all for feeling the way i do. and i hate feeling this way because i function on reason. i like to know WHY i feel the way i do. and in this case, i can't figure it out. i don't have reasons. i can't place anything. all i know is that SOMETHING is off. something isn't right. something just plain isn't good.

and so i wonder.... am i reading into things that truly aren't there? or do things just sometimes not feel right because they just aren't right? do things feel not good because they aren't good? i simply don't know and i wish i had answers.

Alison cracks me up!

Jenn, been in this old world 57 years next weekend and let me tell you that I have surmissed, perceived, imagined and judged but never in my life has my gut steered me wrong!

Sometimes it all doesn't come out until much later but every time I have gone against my gut or my dogs judgement it is me that ends up looking stupid.

My blog of a couple of days ago explain the last little version of my gut telling me something and me going aginst it!

Listen to what it is telling you!

Jenn,

1. Trust your gut.
2. He is your hubby, not your boyfriend. (Just in case you forgot again... if it makes the sex hotter, keep calling him boyfriend)

Your gut. Trust it.

You can't be wrong.

TRUST YOUR GUT!! Even if you don't know whyyou feel this way, there's a reason and follow it.

Trust your gut, but since you don't know what the feeling is for, then let time go by and don't think too much into it... think about it, what can you do?

Your gut is your first line of defense...but not the only one...

You can't go on your gut alone...but its a good start.

Go with your gut. Mine told me something recently as well. And while things still don't feel right for me and the way to fix it could take an awful long while, I'm going to do what it has told me to do because I think that is the only way I will feel better.

Always trust your gut. I've got a good, long story about trusting my gut and it saved my life. I'll spare you the details, but if I wouldn't have trusted what my instincts were telling me, I'm confident I would have been dead- murdered actually. Oprah once had a special show on trusting your gut instincts at all times. It's your body and mind totally in sinc with one another and protecting yourself when nothing else/ no one else can. ALWAYS TRUST WHAT YOUR INSTINCTS ARE TELLING YOU!

I wouldn't ignore your gut! It has a funny habit of telling you the truth. :)
