40 Things

25 – Trust Your Gut

While I don’t always want to trust my gut, the truth is that it is almost never wrong. Even when I really don’t want it to be right.

I have learned the hard way that if it seems too good to be true, it probably is.

This comes from years of trusting people I should have never trusted in the first place. It comes from getting offers dangled in front of me like golden carrots only to have them snatched away. It is from believing in fairy tales that had no chance of ever happening.

When I look back, I probably could have prevented getting a lesson in being naive nine out of ten times. I just had to trust my gut. My intuition.

If you feel like something isn’t right, or something is a little bit off, you are probably right. Trust the way you feel.

I am counting down the days until my 40th birthday with 40 Things.
