Doing What Feels Right: Preface
I’ve decided to take a novel new approach to living. This decision will effect the decisions I make every day that ultimately affect the course of my life. This decision will effect every thought that passes through my head in every waking minute.
Let’s call this novel new approach to living: Doing What Feels Right; because it’s easier to remember and build on ideas when we compartmentalize and label them, not because it’s fair or accurate to compartmentalize and label anything. This issue with compartmentalization has revealed itself as a prominent but inevitable issue in how I understand the world. Life can never be about connecting dots; this will always be nothing more than a dangerous figure of speech. No matter how accurate and cleverly I can demonstrate a system on paper, the power is in the understanding, and the real power is found by those who read between the lines and internalize and feel life’s abstract lessons. This final step is where I believe I fail.
Knowing has gotten be quite far in life. It’s gotten me here, but here often doesn’t feel right. What’s wrong? Where did I go wrong? I explore this question more often than I think about sex; for those who haven’t heard, assuming I’m a man, that means I think about it more often than every 7 seconds. Have I ever found answers? Yes, for the objective, never for myself; which leaves me accurate and lost.
As horrible as this sounds, Doing What Feels Right will be very difficult for me. I will literally need to remind myself every day; likely every minute for the first few days.
What Do I Expect To Achieve?
I expect tension and stress will slowly melt away as newness anxieties fluctuate. My cortisol levels will drop and my systolic blood pressure will settle. I will be more comfortable, at peace, closer to my sense of rightness.
This will not be a cure-all. In fact, I expect much anxiety and negative repercussions to come from this exercise. This is a learning exercise. As with anything else, there is a balance. Though initially, before exploring balance, I will be taking careful note of what things I continue to do despite feeling “unright”, and what things are unavoidable, nearly unavoidable or routine in my life that don’t feel right.
How much of my life can feel right and how much is sustainable?
