I feel it in my gut that this is the right thing to do.
It being of course the life changing move that we are about to make. Nice that we allow an entire two consonant word to represent the big decisions we make during our life span.
The stomach is for digesting food and drink not being the reason supporting life altering decisions?
Or is it that the mind and the brain have already weighed in and the stomach is just the television news crew telling a story of procrastination, our procrastination to improve the quality of our lives.
In reality the stomach or gut that is screaming that we should follow the decision already made by the mind and brain is a great example of the body-mind connection. Our stomach is not making any decisions and has very little control. It is the big, dummy cheering in the corner for the cool kids: the mind and brain. The mind and brain just wants to play along and embraces the role of the big, lovable lama ox that ultimately helps us get across the finish line.
The stomach is reacting to the mind’s reminder that a path has been selected and we are going to miss the train, plane and boat if we don’t get a move on. The subtle and often sub-conscious mind reminders fuel small waves of affect that are “felt” in the gut. Our excitement generated as the result of thinking about a change is felt in the stomach, where, apparently, all emotions take flight as physiological sensations.
How can you not love a system that is cognitive, emotional and physical. The three magic powers designed to help us just get our heads our of our asses AND those asses off of the couch.
Listen to your stomach. When it growls, feed it. When it says, get your ass in gear…take a leap of faith and do it.
