Good Morning Dear Readers,
This morning I want to write about an experience that has taking me so very long to learn……TRUST YOUR GUT…….
In my world, trusting your GUT is something that took me many years to learn and I’m not sure why, but believe me NOW I GET IT…….
If you, in dealing with any situation, get this little bump in the pit of your stomach, PAY ATTENTION BECAUSE IT IS USUALLY ABOUT SOMETHING NOT RIGHT!!!!!!!!!
This weekend, a friend asked me to help her with a appearingly simple task: Well, guess what it was a huge MESS, with me dealing with a very hostile tenant of hers in her rental house. I said, “Ok and left.” I trusted my gut, the guy was totally crazy and screaming and swearing at me, she ended up calling the cops to get him out of her house. Trusting my GUT felt great and I will never put myself in a dangerous situation. JUST SAY NO, and I felt bad I was unable to help my friend.
So, my next TRUST MY GUT EXPERIENCE IS HAPPENING RIGHT NOW!!!!!!!!
Mr’s entire family and some friends are coming in October for a surprise for his 60th birthday. So, as we all talked we decided that one of those VRBO vacation homes would be a good option for them as I recently had a great experience with VRBO. https://www.vrbo.com/
So, I have been trying to get a hold of this lady who owns the home they are interested in and we have been playing the phone tag game (they like the house because of the location and it will sleep 13 people) And the lady has been a huge pain in the ass to communicate with.
Well, last night at 6:30 pm, she finally called me and SHE WAS DRUNK AS A SKUNK. REALLY????? I don’t feel really good about dealing with this lady but I am going to meet her and look at the house on Friday. Hmmmmm.
And, as I have just written all of this, I just had a big insight, Why me????? Why are people asking me to do these things for them? Is it because I am a nice person, is it because I can make time, is it because I am a crazy sucker? Hmmmm, lots of food for thought on that one.
Dear Readers, how do you handle TRUSTING YOUR GUT AND DID IT TAKE YOU A LONG TIME TO GET IT? PLEASE SHARE YOUR EXPERIENCE WITH ME.
Lot’s going on. Still blowing up the pool, the pool people just came, we have so much dust in this house we can hardly breathe but we are on the home stretch.
Angel Girl is here and we had a lovely visit yesterday and about a 3 hour sushi lunch and my little elderly lady went to assisted living on Monday and that was a huge DRAMA.
Mr and I continue to roll on and life is good. Life is as good as you make it, right??????
Please share your GUT experiences with us. How do you TRUST YOUR GUT?????
Sending lots of love,
