Recently, I was so excited to think that, after 25 years, I was going to be a Big Brother again. Given some time and some thought, I have decided not to do it. It breaks my heart as I know I'd be an excellent mentor and there is such need for it. I also know that it is a commitment to a human being and I take that very seriously. I knew that if I took it on that it would require time and effort. I did not feel that at this time I could make that commitment, so it is better that I don't make it at all. I do plan to become a mentor again someday but just not right now. How did I know what to do? It was a gut feeling. What about you, do you get gut feelings about things and, most importantly, do you listen to them?
