Where did it go? Are we really staring down the end of summer?
If I’m not dealing with a dose of poison ivy, I may be focused on my gut health. Eating fermented foods is supposed to be beneficial, although scientific studies of our microbiomes are in their early days. Having a gut reaction, not to food but to a situation/experience, may be intuition at work. In other words, that sixth sense in action.
How intuitive do you consider yourself to be? If you’re a firm believer in accurate Myers-Briggs assessments, you may think you have very little intuition. I believe that, when it matters, the “spidey” sense does come into play. Countering intuition with a common-sense desire to downplay or discount that elusive something can lead to convincing oneself to ignore danger. Why we want to go with our gut is explained in this must-read college student send-off, for you and the student: Gavin De Becker, The Gift of Fear: Survival Signals That Protect Us from Violence.
Don’t have a college-bound student? Doesn’t matter. Read the book anyway. It’s well worth your investment of time.
Time is free, but it's priceless.
You can't own it, but you can use it.
You can't keep it, but you can spend it.
Once you've lost it, you can never get it back.
