I've been having this feeling in my gut recently.
It typically happens in the evening when I'm starting to wind down and I'm not focused on "doing".
It feels like anxiety... But there's something different about it.
I've been working through it. Being with it. Listening to the signs. Getting out of my head.
At first I was thinking it was a "bad" thing. This feeling in my stomach is telling me something. It can't be good.
Or can it?
If I think about my life right now, I'm at an interesting point. I'm transitioning. I'm growing. I'm moving up to the next level. New opportunities are coming. My confidence is building. New challenges are presenting themselves. I'm moving into uncharted waters.
Perhaps it's not anxiety. Perhaps it's excitement!
The difference between the two?
A simple change in mindset. A change in meaning. A different word.
Now, I welcome the feeling.
