A tendency to do nothing or to remain unchanged
A property of matter by which it continues in its existing state of rest or uniform motion in a straight line, unless that state is changed by an external force
Resistance to change in some other physical property
- the thermal inertia of the oceans will delay the full rise in temperature for a few decades
Inertia is the first word that came to me this morning. I have a fabulous opportunity that I need to act upon and I literally feel pressure on my whole self to remain in this cozy spot where I am this minute. Like when you're on a roller coaster and the force of the ride is pinning you into your seat.
I have to get up and move. Against the force of the pressure- it's a scary feeling.
