“Trust your in­stincts”

In the Moment - - Good News -

Trust­ing what you think – and not what your best friend/part­ner/col­league is help­fully try­ing to per­suade you of – is a sign that you know your­self and have the self-con dence to be your­self.

The late Maya An­gelou – writer, poet, civil rights ac­tivist and mother at 16 – summed up those ‘trust your gut’ mo­ments beau­ti­fully: “I’m grate­ful to in­tel­li­gent peo­ple. That doesn’t mean ed­u­cated or in­tel­lec­tual. What black old peo­ple used to call ‘mother wit’ means in­tel­li­gence that you had in your mother’s womb. That’s what you rely on. You know what’s right to do.”
