go with your gut

going with your gut

Your momma always told you to trust your gut, right? From whether or not it was a good idea to do whatever stupid things your friends were trying that week to talking to creepy strangers with candy and large vans. If it doesn’t feel right, it probably isn’t. Right?

But what if you really don’t like what your gut is telling you? What if it makes you hate your guts? What if you’d rather strap on some cowboy boots and ride a horse all day (even though we’ve established that they’re scary beasts to be avoided at all costs)? What if it makes you want to vomit and hide in the closet with a big fat jar of Nutella? What then?

Do you collect your bravery, close your eyes and take that step, blindly hoping for the best? Or do you tell your guts to shut it and go about your business?

What do you do? Are you a believer in going with your gut? Or do you ignore it?

While you ponder that, I’ve got a few of my favorite links from around the web for your weekend:
