This I Believe: I Believe In Feeling Nervous

May 21, 2020

I believe in feeling nervous.

I love every sensation. From the way my heart trembles deep in my chest, to the twisting dance my stomach does inside my body, and even the unsteady wobble of my legs underneath me. In a way, it’s comforting. It’s the purest form of living. You’re narrowly focused but see your entire environment in stunning clarity. In every breath you inhale all the world’s oxygen, and yet it’s never enough. You’re driven toward the completion of one goal, one task. Nervousness is a unique state of being, one that I’ve learned to appreciate.
