Get all liquored up and go to the peach tree dance

How do you know what is real? Do you trust your head (so, what your eyes and ears tell you) or your gut (what your instincts tell you)? And if you trust your gut, what informs the gut? Intuition? Past experiences? Suppressed memories? If you trust your head, how do you know your senses are perceiving things as they really are? You don't have to answer. I am mostly asking myself these questions to know more about how I come to conclusions about the world. I believe both systems are flawed slightly. You can never know if what you hear is biased or even true. Visuals can be faked or altered. I personally usually trust my gut more than my head and feel out what I believe rather than think it out, and it can sometimes lead to trouble. Or crazy assumptions.  Or really good decisions, I guess depending on a bunch of physical variables (if I have had enough sleep, proper hydration, yoga, etc.)  I have really been examining how I perceive the world and life lately. I have been realizing that even if I HAVE ALWAYS trusted my instincts, I have been wrong before. A safety net of logic should act as insurance before assuming anything. In fact, The Four Agreements say that we should never assume anything anyway. Better to ask questions to gain clarity. The problem is you can ask questions, get your answers and your gut could tell you that the person is lying to you anyway. Hmmm.

My gut also tells me that cream corduroy pants are simply amazing and the best new addition to my wardrobe. My head says they may be a tad impractical, but my gut's voice is louder so screw it! I am wearing these as much as possible!


Pants, cardigan: on clearance at Banana Republic and bought with a gift card (whoo hooo!!)
Scarf, shirt, shoes: thrifted
Purse: gift from one of the coolest girls in the world.

Oh, and my title was a suggestion from my husband. It's from There Will Be Blood. We have seen that movie lots of times. He definitely made decisions with his gut. Unfortunately, to horrific result. Though entertaining. Hmmm.

Glad to see that someone else has read the Four Agreements. It has helped me a lot in the past few years.

Your post resonates here. I'm struggling with the exact same thing. I'm back together with my ex - against logic, he has left me 2 times before. My gut says there is something there worth exploring. But sometimes I pick up signals and start analysing and drive myself crazy, not knowing what to trust anymore. Blegh. And indeed, this happens more often when I'm not 100% okay physically. Or when I have my period.
Thanks for sharing your stories here.
And I love that outfit, orange really works on you.

Cream corduroy pants are *not* impractical at all. I have had a pair for several years now and they work with SO many things, and so many colors. I think you will find them a fall / spring favorite in your closet. :)

Loving today's warm colors, BTW! Your photo feels almost like summer and that can't come too soon!

I tend to trust my "gut", which is shorthand for my entire body.

Admiring the orange shoes!

Ana said...

I absolutely love the colour palette of this outfit....not to mention that this looks like the most stylish and cozy outfit that someone could put together! But back to the colours, this peachy shade really gets me excited for spring!

Kimberellie said...

I'd have to agree with your gut on these pants, they are AWESOME. And you are looking as lovely and trés cool as usual! LOVE all the warm colours. Man, I wish it were Spring already!

much love: miss furnellie (with a baby in her belly)
