It’s been a very interesting couple of weeks. All I can say is always, ALWAYS trust your gut. Now I know I’ve spoken on this before, but after the week I’ve had and the people I've encountered, it just seems to be a good time to dance thru this subject again.
Let’s just start generically by saying “I spoke to a friend this week…”hahahaha. Seriously, I had a “text” conversation this week with what I thought was a good friend of mine. Obviously our definition of friend differs greatly, but anywho…we exchanged our usual barrage of morning pleasantries. Nothing big, typical stuff, “How’s your week going…What’s going on with ya…” truly friend stuff. Now stepping back to a few days ago, I was perusing FaceBook (Ahh technology the great equalizer) when I came across some wedding photos dated a couple of months ago. What caught my eye was the silhouette of the bride and groom. No faces just shadow. “Damn, is that… (the culprit shall remain nameless in order to protect the guilty) LOL.”
Stepping back even further to a few months ago, I picked up on something quite odd with my dear ol friend, but I just couldn’t nail down what…
Moving back to the present, (Is that an oxymoron? Oh well…)"I know that silhouette, that's my friend."
WTF…married? Didn’t I just talk to him yesterday? Hilarious! So I waited. Figured I’d hear from him and as usual, like clockwork I received my morning greeting. I responded as I normally would and then I asked the BIG question. Now as a general rule, he typically responds in a timely manner. I guess this took some digesting. So after a day or so I received a response, yep…married.
As always my gut was on point.
What I love about all of this is it reminded me that you never go wrong by listing to your gut.
BigGirlz are you listening to your gut? Are you acknowledging that odd feeling that appears just before you give an answer, that twitch, that ping that surfaces right as you make the critical decision, or when your man stops by with the wrong look in his eye. You know what I’m talking about, that “something just ain’t right” twinge that makes the hair on the back of your neck stand up like needles.
STOP ignoring that!
It’s the best tool for navigating life, dating and then some. Hey, it's gotten me out of a whole lot of shit (a story for another day).
Now I will probably never know the point of my so called friend not telling me about his new life, I asked but of course he refuses to give up the goods. (LOL) His lost because I give really great wedding gifts, so I’m moving on to the next one letting my gut lead the way.
