I don’t know the exact quote. There may not be one; there may be many. The gist of it all is that a woman’s intuition is something to behold and not to be ignored. It’s no wives’ tale about a woman’s intuition. It’s a gift given to us by God. Where am I going with all of this? Well, a weekly writing is what.
Describe a moment when you ignored your intuition. What happened.
There are many times when I ignored my intuition, but I think the biggest happened my senior year of high school when I let my guidance counselor convince me that going to a state school would not be good for me and that I should go to a private school. I planned on going to a school I could afford. I went to a school that started me on this downward spiral of student loans and bad decisions about majors and classes.
I know that I can’t play the what-if game because there are so many good things on the outside of the mess I got myself in that I wouldn’t want to change those. But, I can’t help but wonder if I wouldn’t have made that one choice under pressure if I wouldn’t at least just broke instead of broke broke broke.
I know that one day things will be better. It may be The Day, but it’s coming.
**Please note that I am not considering the guidance of the Holy Spirit lesser than what is called intuition. Is it possible that the Spirit has given women extra sensitivity to help fine tune decision-making?**
***Addendum 11-12-2010: The more I research getting out of debt, the more I feel like a loser. I really did myself a disservice with ignoring my gut, intuition, whatever. Men and women alike shouldn’t ignore that gut feeling. I’m not advocating relying completely on it because we’re human and generally stupid. At least, I am. I say rely fully on the Holy Spirit.
