That Gnawing Feeling

 

Pondering That Gnawing Feeling

 

That Gnawing Feeling  I have been thinking.  About gnawing feelings.  And other things.  Gnawing as a word goes way back.  To old English times according to dictionary.com.  Often associated with pain.  That wasn't exactly what I was thinking.  Persistent?  Perhaps.  Anticipation?  Maybe. 

 

 

There is that gnawing feeling that

we are far more than what we believe ourselves to be. 

Maybe it's time to believe the gnawing. 

                                                                                         Craig D. Lounsbrough 

 

I don't know if it was a gnawing feeling that lead me to do some additional investigation of the author of this quote but I did go on a search.  Although what I found was a bit different than I what I might expect there was still a feeling. Yes, a gnawing one.  

 

It made me think of anticipation.  Anticipated results. Consequences.  Expected and unexpected.  Sometimes that gnawing feeling leads to another.  And sometimes it may be entirely different.  A different direction.  Down the rabbit hole once again.   And so it goes...

Sounds like a perfect analogy for the beginning of a new school year. Even those of us long out of school often seek new beginnings in the fall.

Wayne and Jean Marie Zuhl - while each day offers an opportunity for a new beginning, the change in season or a change in routine can often "shake us up" a bit.

Dear Michael Jacobs,  I loved your post and it is probably a main stream of consciousness in my mind that each of us individually and all of us as a whole are much more than whom we believe we are.  It is the basis of what I believe -- my mission  'here' on Carl Sagan's 'Blue Dot,' Planet Earth.  So many things came to mind as I reread your post that perhaps I could write a chapter in a book - and I will save that part to do so later.  In the meantime, I know we both have Birthdays this month and there are some strong connections and similarities in our connection.  Sooooooooo, my dear Michael, I instead offer this song by John Denver (David Pomeranz also offers the song with a little clearer lyrics). 
I hope you can click on the link and hear the main words (or copy/paste):
                         It's  In  Everyone  of  Us  To  be  Wise.

Jane Chaulklin-Schott - I think it would be great if a post, a quote or a thought inspired a page or a chapter in a book.  Inspiration is definitely a part of life. All around us.  Especially when we let it in.  Thank you for sharing the writing of David Pomeranz(previously unknown or at least I don't recall knowing of him).  I appreciate your comments.  Very much.

Oh, when I think of gnawing feelings, it's the one that makes you feel like your stomach is gnawing on itself - because you're starving! 

...and, yes, so it goes, Michael...

Debe Maxwell, CRS - I was in the habit of skipping meals with much more regularity in the past but times change and so have my eating habits.  Less skipping translates to less gnawing.  Hopefully better nutrition has it benefits.

It absolutely does and you are so wise to recognize that too. It's such a habit for many to skip meals and it really does more harm than good - both nutritionally and your body also holds onto fat, contributing to weight gain. It's a vicious cycle!

Debe Maxwell, CRS - it seems to go against common sense but you eat less by eating more often.  Smaller-size plates make a difference too and more emphasis on "real" food helps.

LOL I JUST took a shot of my dinner plate - yes, eating late but, I stay up later than most too!

Anyway, it's a salad plate AND I use a salad fork - well, unless I go out to dinner or if I am at a dinner party! I have done that for decades - I think it makes you eat smaller bites and fill faster! Who knows if it works or if it's in my head but, it works for me.

This was a different one I hadn't heared before. However, I like it.

I also thought of hunger when speaking of gnawing feelings.  Down to basics here... time to eat.
