Going with my Gut in Six


Sometimes an urge overcomes me and I want to play the way children do instinctively; without holding myself back. I’m tempted to act, but don’t because of fear, nerves or risk of embarrassment. Sometimes, I free my spirit and go with my gut. Six words tell my truth.

Sing out loud like a rockstar.

Cry out loud until body trembles.

Laugh until I pee my pants.

Scream out loud to the forest.

Run free, fast until I’m breathless.

Dance the way my soul dares.

“In everyone’s life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.”
– Albert Schweitzer

Author: Mary Chang Story Writer: Inspiration, Creativity, Self-Empowerment

Stories inspired by fitness, community & people with inner strength. Life journey is about sparking your internal fire and finding your shine. I'm an award-winning short story fiction writer, published memoir writer, blogger and lifelong "work in progress" striving towards becoming a better person, parent and writer. Writing self-empowers me to share my voice and may inspire you to create your own stories or reflect about your own life journey. I capture life's moments that make me self-reflect, laugh, cry, scream, be curious, draw me into the past or somewhere new that scares me. Sometimes I tell a story in six words, sometimes in thousands. Someday, a novel. People who read my stories sometimes laugh, cry, nod, reflect, swear or ask for more. Sometimes they don't. I hope that you do.
