My gut has always been my greatest ally.
If it doesn’t feel right in my gut, then it’s not right. No amount of analyzing, weighing pros or cons, or dissecting the situation can change the fact that if something ain’t quite right in my gut, then it ain’t quite right.
Now, that doesn’t mean it’s a total wash either, it just means something’s keeping it from being “right”. Could be a major overhaul, or it could be the slightest of tweaks. I find this applies to every aspect of my life – my marriage, my relationship with my kids, my family and friends, work, design, hobbies. Doesn’t matter. It’s all about the gut and making sure it’s happy.
For me a happy gut == a happy life.
