Do you ever just know something?

I mean really know it, down in your core. I KNEW that I was going to marry my ex-husband when I first met him. I was only 14-years-old but I knew it. We had our struggles to finally get together, but I married him when I was nineteen. Now, it didn't work out, but it gave me two wonderful kids and a great friend. For the five years prior to our marriage deep down I never questioned that it would happen. How or when wasn't important, I just felt it.

I used to write, loved to write. I haven't done it in a long time and I just keep buying book after book about writing. I was reading a book written by a woman who teaches writing workshops and she was talking about her classes and I thought about how I wanted to find a local class. The next day my friend Diane told me about the classes she was going to teach. They start soon and I'm signed up!

That happened to me recently with something a bit less important. But, the idea came in my head and less than a week later it happened. I wish I had a little more control over this, but I'm working on it. I need to trust my gut a lot more and not worry so much about the how or the why of it all.

Tonight it dawned on me that I did it again the other day with something that could be important. It was like I just walked out of the house knowing exactly what I needed to do. I even tried to do something different and I couldn't. I won't tell you what it is yet, I'll wait to see the outcome and let you know then. Telling now puts too much pressure on it.


  1. Man, I wish you could send some of that my way! I'm learning to trust my gut but I rarely get that "MUST DO" sort of feeling.

  2. I admit to being someone who believes in a lot of new age beliefs on thoughts and how powerful they are. I'm looking to possibly buy Photoshop Elements and the cheapest place I found it was on the Adobe site, but with the shipping it was more than Amazon. I just put it out there that I wanted them to offer free shipping on it, and this morning there was an e-mail to my other blog that the education store was offering free shipping!
