I can’t place it…
I can’t put my finger on it…
Something doesn’t sit right…
I am on the edge of my seat with this gut- wrenching feeling gnawing from inside me.
These butterflies fluttering in my stomach doing things to me that I could never decipher.
I can’t explain it, but I can feel it and it’s loud in my head.
I feel like I am in a foreign land, blindfolded and with sweaty palms, primed with nothing but my familiarity of sound and scent. I can smell the rain but it’s not there yet. Perhaps I am just reading too much between the lines.
So, what do we settle here? I don’t know! The water isn’t clear yet but enough to see my conundrum.
It’s more than just betting all of your chips in whichever side the coin you got and throw caution to the wind. It’s like dancing to your own music, heeding your intuition and letting your inner core navigate the ship and be your own compass.
Funny isn’t it? How are we able to feel the physicality of a thought? A figment of our imagination, and how powerful our own mind is that we are able to either harm or uplift ourselves in more than one way. Unsettling…
