What’s irksome for me is when I do not listen to my gut/intuition. I am learning more and more each day that even when I do not understand the reasons beyond a thought or a gut reaction; it is okay. I do not have to see the future before I decide to take action; it is important to have faith and trust that things will work out. Usually, the answer as to why I should do something, will come within a few minutes, hours, days, or even in some cases, years later. It feels good when I do follow my gut to leave and go to the store now, to call a friend or my mom now, to send a text now, or visit someone now, because usually when I do, I tend to have a more desirable outcome, than if I did not follow my gut/intuition. I have had many instances, over the years, when I felt like I should have said or done something and did not.
It is not so much about regretting not saying or doing something I felt I should have. It is about trusting myself. It is about trusting yourself. We need to trust the guide inside and be able to let go of needing to control everything in our life and let go….
When you feel the need to encourage a loved one to check his or her blood pressure, blood sugar, to go and check on your children, to take your son or daughter to the doctor, to sign up for a class, to start your own business, to go on vacation, to take care of yourself, to patiently wait for the train to pass (I’ve seen the results of individuals wanting to beat trains), to ask the pharmacist why this month’s pills are different from last month, to remind the doctor that it is your left leg that is bothering you instead of your right, to ask your doctor for a generic form of the drug he or she is prescribing you, to leave the house later than usual, to end a relationship with someone, to go back and check to see if you locked the door, to go back and check to see if you turned off the stove, to say no to someone, to wear certain clothes instead of the one you picked out, waiting until morning to take the trash out………and more.
Follow your gut/intuition. Most likely, you will be glad you did.
