    Trust your intuition,

    This comes up for me in big and little ways. Sometimes I don't know about it because I avoided something that would have been bad but since I avoided it somehow I would never know. Now that I am not living in hell I can hear it much better than ever.

    Tonight I needed an ice cream from 7-11 around the corner and I needed it right away. I was about to read something I was emailed and felt like I wanted to have the ice cream when I read it. I ran into one of my favorite families!!! Mom asked if I was still at the school and I said no, apparently nothing has been done for after school programming. I have known this family the entire 6 years, the older boys had some time they were homeschooled but the youngest was at the school. Mom said that I was the reason the youngest girl was still there (I have known her since she was a baby), and I got a hug.

    Other little intuitions, I have a strong shopping intuition. I will have the random urge to go to Marshalls or Goodwill and will get something amazing, Which is good because I rarely like shopping but need everything since I lost some weight. Many years ago I bought my van totally intuitively. One of the best purchases I ever made. 8 passenger (not 7 like mini vans), low mileage, great price and I drove that on trips, with daycare kids, used it as a changing station for swim practices, until it dropped. I was driving through town and had an urge to go a random way and saw it.

    I realize this can be annoying from the outside, and sometimes I am wrong, however it feels like when I am in the flow of all the energy then things flow with me.

    I read that what we think is intuition is our mind processing so fast that we don’t realize that is actually happening. Our mind is picking l on things that we don’t even realize. I thought that was interesting.

    I'm a firm believer in instincts. We ignore them at our peril.

    In my experience, “trust your gut” ranks with “be yourself” in the questionable advice category.

    I am always sorry if I ignore it.

    The only useful advice I’ve ever gotten from my gut was to avoid spicy food after 8PM.

    Right. You don’t go to a job interview and actually tell them what you think your greatest weakness is.

    I always say perfectionism. In reality my greatest weakness is chocolate, but I can't say that!
    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.

    I really don't have the temperament for employment; I'm glad none of my employers noticed that--and I certainly didn't put that answer forward during my interviews. "I need to nap after lunch" wouldn't have been prudent.
