Things That Make You Go Hmmm

On Oprah today she had the great writer, Gavin De Becker talking about his book The Gift of Fear. This book has been around for 10 years now but it is so fascinating to me. The author speaks of that gut feeling everybody gets, and most ignore right before something tragic happens. I listened to each person share there story and I couldn't help but think of the count less calls I have received at work were they are telling me one thing and in the back on my mind I am thinking "this just isn't right". More times than not I have been right on with my instincts. Anyways, if you get a chance check out the book.

I own two copies of this book and often loan out my extra to girlfriends. I find this book completely fascinating and TRUE! If you haven't read this book you definitely should. I really enjoy when he talks about the difference between anxiety and fear. Anxiety is in our head and useless, fear is real and is a survival mechanism. OK - I am a big dork, but seriously, listen to Darcie and check out this book!
