Shortly after one of our many moves, I was asked to serve on a local board. One of the board members that I got to spend a lot of time with was a smart, energetic woman that ran a local literacy coalition.
Each one of us brought different knowledge, experiences and strengths to our conversations but we shared a vision and a passion.
After one of our long meetings of turning over rocks, looking at squiggly things underneath them, and brainstorming solutions, she made the comment that when we spent time together it felt more like playing than work. (I felt the same way.)
Isn’t it awesome when you can pour energy into something, think deeply, challenge yourself or learn something new that several hours later instead of feeling tired you feel energized, focused and hopeful?
With that in mind ~ Today I want to invite you to play with me.
I’m working on a project that has me turning over rocks to better understand intuition and the truth that our gut “just knows.”
I’ve been reading articles.
- I’ve been thinking through the times in my life when I did or did not listen to my gut and what the results were.
- I’ve intentionally tuned into my decision making process to discern what is driving me. (Head – A “Spock-like” logic; Gut –A knowing that might not make logical sense; Fear – A pre-conceived notion, belief or prejudice.)
- I’ve watched current events closely and deeply considered what is driving each situation.
In this process, several questions have crossed my mind. Will you check the questions out and share your thoughts on any or all of them?

- Please share a time that you did not listen to your gut and you later regretted it.
- Please share a time you did listen to your gut and what happened.
- Have you ever struggled to discern the difference: Between what your head says, what your gut says and what your fears/preconceived notions say? …If so, what do you do? …And which one do you listen to?
Thank you! I look forward to hearing from you!
