Have you ever looked back on a situation that didn't feel right initially, ended up not working out, and you were left feeling the guilty pain of knowing you should have trusted your gut feeling from the beginning?  Over the years, this has happened to me more than I'd like to admit.  Yes, I've had to learn the hard way that your gut feeling is a feeling that you have for a reason and one that you should tap into immediately.  

Why does it take so long to learn this?  If you're not comfortable with a situation, a person, a job you knew was entirely wrong for you, why do we not listen to our intuition and get ourselves into situations we had an inkling that might end badly?  I'm not entirely sure.  I do know that sometimes it's the lesson of learning what doesn't work for you, and that's a good thing.  However, sometimes it's not that easy and that is when you have to trust your intuition.  Whether you can explain it or not, in those moments your gut is all you've got, and it's telling you something for a reason.  Just a little something I've been thinking about lately.
