"Fixer Upper" star Joanna Gaines lives by her motto of "always trust your instincts."
The design star revealed in Traditional Home's May issue that she has learned to not always "try to please the crowd." Instead, she says, she "go[es] with [my] gut."
Gaines also opened up about her Texas pride telling the magazine she's "proud to call [Texas] home."
"Texans know how to make people feel welcome," the 39-year-old shared. "Waco is such a resilient town...this city has seen its fair share of hardships, but it always bounces back better and stronger."
