Fight or flight! Fall apart or raise the battle flag! Which path would you choose? I don’t think any of us ever really know what we would do until something happens that forces our hand……….
The golf ball sized lump appeared literally overnight and the doctor wanted to do a biopsy. He turned away, picked up the telephone and arranged an appointment for the following day with the surgeon who would do the exploratory surgery.
The mirror on the wall stared back. It made eye contact and time seemed not to mean very much. Somewhere in the super-subconscious a debate was going on.
Then it seemed that the debate must have concluded, and a hand reached into her purse. Strangely cool fingers pulled out a lipstick. It was a deep red. Never been worn, she had never had the gumption to wear it. Carefully, slowly, the bold color brought a flush to cheeks that had taken on a pale tinge.
The lipstick went back in the bag, back in the purse. One last look and she turned towards her fate.
“Well,” she heard herself say out loud, “I guess I’m going into battle!”
Have you ever felt as though your mind or your body has taken over your actions? A part of you has seemingly taken charge and you are being swept along by some force within you.
Well, listen up, people, because that is pure gut instinct telling you to what to do. It only has your best interests at heart. It knows what you need and what can help you. More importantly, it can tell you what won’t help you as well.
Next time you feel that compelling urge, go with it! Have faith and trust that you really do know the answer!
