Please listen to that tiny voice when it screams at you.

Ding ding ding ding....
It never ceases to amaze me how well our built in alarms work. Learning to pay attention to our "gut" is probably one of the most valuable things we could ever learn.
Today while I was cleaning the house, doing the normal every day activity of vacuuming I was stopped by this overwhelming feeling that something was not right.
My skin started crawling, my stomach started knotting. I thought I was about to have an anxiety attack or something. It was really random and hit me fast.
I had to stop and ask myself, "Self, what the hell is wrong with you?"
After a little soul searching I knew who I had to contact. I made a phone call and found out that there really was something not right happening right at that very moment and I called in the nick of time. It wasn't life shattering, but life altering for someone that I care a lot about.
I can't say what it was exactly on a public forum without breaking a confidence, but let's just say for the rest of my life I promise to never ignore my "gut" ever! Lesson learned.


me, myself and I said...

I always listen to my little voices. Sometimes they tell me not to drive home via my normal route, and I don't question them, I just do it.
One night Mark suddenly told me to slow down for no apparent reason. 10 seconds later a dear ran out in front if us. We would have hit it.

You're absolutely right - always listen to your gut.
