Can I Borrow A Quarter? My Life Depends On It.

25 Aug

This week I had all 3 kids home, no camp and no help until the afternoons. With all the whining, fighting and demands I should have been focused on sheer survival. I wasn’t.
I was thinking a lot about intuition and gut feelings. How do you know the difference between what’s truly meant to be and a craving? What if you don’t trust your gut, will you end up making the wrong choices?
I see my younger sister S.N. everyday. We pretty much talk about everything under the sun. I trust her opinions and we’ve been going back and forth on this topic all week. She strongly subscribes to the gut feelings, intuition, and just “when you know you know” theory. She also believes that if your talking about firefighters and a fire truck parks in front of your house then it must be a sign of some kind, and I’m not sure I would go that far.
I can clearly look back at some moments in my life and now recognize that all the signs were there telling me that I wanted one thing, and I still chose the opposite. Decision making is a delicate dance. I have made pros and cons lists pages long when trying to decide on a house or Preschool only to arrive at the decision that I have no idea what the hell to do!
I’m going to start flipping a coin. If I like the winning side then I have my answer. If I’m disappointed, then I choose the opposite.
Yup, there you have it folks. My future and the future of this family has come down to heads or tails.

    You can also figure out what you really feel is right when you start hoping for either heads or tails.
