Do You Listen To Your Inner Voice?

Listen to that little voice inside you.

You know when you're about to turn a corner but you get the feeling that you should go a different direction? Or, when you plan on leaving at a certain time only it seems that maybe later would be better? I've had those situations and found that I made the right choice going with my gut. I had an experience yesterday that proved my intuition, my inner voice, was right on target.

I live on a somewhat busy street. Raising 2 children on this street has proven to be stressful at times. My neighbors have children around the same age and we know to keep an eye out for one another.

My daughter and her friend wanted to ride their scooters down a hill and knew the drill, an adult had to be with them. I was in the middle of "something" and my husband was in the middle of "something" so it wasn't a good time. My daughter gave one last "Come on mom!", and I felt that it was something that I should do. I should stop what I was doing and go watch the girls.

As we were going down the sidewalk of this busy street I saw a car parked on a corner, blocking the path. Strange. A woman was near the car with a very young boy, maybe 3 years old. Trying to figure out what was going on I see this little boy run away from the woman and move closer to the street. I go running toward the little boy and my daughter's friend says "That's my little brother!" What?

I picked up the little boy and asked him his name. He told me and then I asked what he was doing. He said he was going to find his daddy. This little boy was 6 blocks from home, alone, wandering down a busy street. This woman, a guardian angel, saw him and stopped her car to help him. His big sister assured the woman that she was his sister and I told her I knew where they lived and that we would be going there at this very moment. What this poor woman must have been thinking?! I thanked her profusely.

When we arrived at the house it was full of family. When they saw us walk in with the little boy they were confused, they thought he was playing upstairs. They had no idea he was gone.

I'm not judging. That's not my point. Any parent knows that anything can happen at anytime. You can think you have your guard up but that one time, that one time you look the other way is when "it" happens.

My point of this story is that I am so happy I listened to that voice telling me to go with the girls. I had a feeling and I followed it. Who knows what would have happened if all of the pieces hadn't fallen into place the way they did.

Listen to your inner voice!

Have you had an experience using your intuition ?

Miss Poodle Perm, That's Me!

Jill of Scary Mommy is doing a linky post about school pictures. You know the ones, possibly you didn't smile a sweet smile, just the smirk of panic. Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!) Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story: I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair , my hair style was a nightmare. My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogram

My Questions Answered By Chef Pati Jinich - Video

Rob and I have been focusing on finding foods and spices that will help us take some weight off.  I've been slightly obsessed with staying on my exercise track (on week 8 now :->) and hope to get rid of this jiggly belly that has become wa-a-a-ay too comfortable on my body.  The older you get the harder it is to lose weight.  What I would say to my 40 year old self - 'See that pouch starting?  Do your crunches and planks now!  7 years from now it's going to get ugly !' I've found that spices cumin, cayenne pepper, red pepper flakes and turmeric are noted to increase metabolism.  ( Yes please !)  After a good workout coconut water is more beneficial in regulating your electrolytes, and lower in calories, than sports drinks.  It also contains more potassium than other drinks which is an important component in helping to build muscle which, in turn, helps you burn more calories. And my most surprising discovery - eating avocados help burn belly fat! I&#
