I've Got a Feelin'

You know the feeling you get right before you decide to do something daring? The feeling that swells inside of you as you cling to a rope swing over a lake and debate whether or not you're going to jump?

Each and every day I get that feeling. I think to myself that I can just get up and go to my boss and give him two weeks' notice. I think about the relief that will come once the words are said. Just like the relief that comes when you swing over that body of water, let go of the rope and sail through the air before hitting the water. It's exhilarating. I know it'll feel that great to quit my job.

But each and every day I have to squelch that feeling. I have to hand back the rope swing and meekly step away from the water.

Hopefully when the day finally comes when I can give in to that adrenaline rush, it'll be that much more worth it because of the wait. At least, that's what I keep telling myself so I can get over the disappointment of waking up each morning and shuffling myself off to work.

I just feel like there's so much more I could be doing. So many rope swings I could be taking a hold of and using to soar.

We'll see.

  1. i'll tell you what... one summer, a few years back, i was having major boy drama. i had a "missionary" who had just returned home at the beginning of the summer, we dated, then he moved to st. george, we still dated, we never saw each other, i called, he never answered, he never returned calls or texts. yeah, awesome.

    then, i was with two of my best gals, and a bunch of random people i didn't know -- and we went rope swinging. i am a huge pansy, so i wasn't going to do it... but then i remembered how frustrated this boy was making me, and i realized i just needed to jump. i needed to jump and then let go. and that i did -- both on the rope and with the boy. two of the best things i have ever done.

    and .... now i'm done rambling.

    hang in there liv!
