my gut

How do you learn to trust your gut? Better yet, how are you even sure that you hear your gut? What exactly does my “gut voice” sound like?

I’m asking, because for the past week or so I’ve been struggling to find, hear, and then of course, learn to trust this gut of mine.

I believe there are a lot of different possible outcomes for things. Your life is going lots of directions all at once. Each moment, is merely a point at which all those different lines cross. Different ones at different times. Sometimes my life is where the “being a kid,” “being an adult,” “wanting to have fun” lines cross, other times my “business hat” will jump on, “fun” makes frequent appearances. You get the idea. It is the lines you favor at any given time that determine the direction you move from that moment of your life to the next.

I’d like if my “gut” would make it known when it was making an appearance because I keep getting confused with “pessimist,” “realist,” “dreamer,” and “paranoid.” Its really balance I’m after. And its this balance I’m after always, not just this week.

In every moment, I hope to balance it better then I did the last time these last lines crossed. I hope to have learned from the last time. I hope to be moving in the direction I want to go in every moment. Always, this will be a challenge. A challenge to remember my intentions, my desired outcomes, and to always act accordingly. Machines can do that. Humans, are human. We forget, we get distracted, we lose focus and get overcome by a louder voice then our own. Least I do.

And then I realize it, and so I quiet everything and wait. Wait for my gut to come back. And always it does.
