    I was nervous today. As yawl know I am moving this week. Well this morning I went to the store and ran into one of the maintenance men that work for my landlord. At first he was like oh well I guess it will be better for you there. . I said yea because there's nobody here. . The couple people left in the building are moving out.

    I don't know why I told him that. Then he tried very hard to discourage me and finally said I was not moving. I just went on to the store more convinced than ever that I need to get outta here.

    I've lived here for six years and there have been about five or six different people in the apartment across the hall from me. There have been about five fires here. Once the firemen had to escort me outside. I don't have any statistics in front of me, but I'd bet that's a little bit above average.

    What made me get really nervous was later when the moving man came to give me an estimate. The price was reasonable and I went down with him to get the box and bubble wrap he brought for my computer. . Then the maintenance man said oh so you're really moving. This is crazy. I mean I'm friendly towards him but not enough to justify his acting so upset. The only thing that makes sense to me is he is worried about his job. As I was going back inside I notice the moving man was talking to him so I went over to see what was going on. I stayed there until the moving man drove off.

    I was extremely nervous wondering if they would try to stop me from moving. I called a friend of mine but fortunately he was not home. . I debated with myself. Nervousness is an emotion that let's us know when there is something going onn that needs our attention and provides the energy we need to take action. At the same time I wondered if I were not talking myself into being more nervous than I really was.

    Oh wow. Right now Phoebe Snow is actually singing Cash In on my windows media Player

    I fell in love with the circus
    That's why I left town
    Clowns breathed down my neck
    Thought they'd marked the deck
    Till I called out giv
    And the jokers cashed in

    I don't be making this stuff up. She is actually singing it.

    So it's okay to feel nervous sometimes. I know there'll be a song, a dream, a friend or whatever I need to get back to my center once the energy is utilized.
