conquering fear

i have a new practice i have put into place during my walks... imagining things/people i fear as the pebbles at my feet... rather than feeling the fear press down upon me... or close in on me from all sides... i imagine it beneath me... something i can view from a different, more manageable perspective... it allows for the light to shine while i think upon how i choose to handle each one... 

'you have brains in your head.
you have feet in your shoes.
you can steer yourself any direction you choose.
you're on your own.
and you know what you know.
you are the guy who'll decide where to go.'
~ dr. seuss oh, the places you'll go


  1. You are on a roll with the quotes today. Love this one and love your new practice. Perhaps I'll steal it, if you don't mind.

  2. lovely idea, a different perspective ..
    and of course Dr.Suess's wonderful words..

  3. Don't we all have those little mind games that we use to calm ourselves? I love your thoughts here- a great perspective. That Dr. Seuss is a pretty smart guy- I love his prose!

    I know you are always busy with new projects- can't wait to see what you create next!

  4. A new perspective is always a good thing - finding a way to deal with our fears is a first step in mastering them...

  5. Great thoughts to be applied to many aspects of life! Keep finding the steps to allow you to see beyond where you are at - there is a lot to see and experience, and to constantly renovate and revive ones inner state of being. Thanks for sharing MJ!

  6. You always have a way of saying things I need to hear....I was cleaning and organizing today and found my collection of Dr. Seuss books...they've always been favorites...I'm going to have to have a storytime with myself and this one again soon. Another favorite of mine is My Many Colored Days....which was written posthumously and illustrated by another artist but I love the sentiment.

  7. Easy words to read.
    Not so easy to translate them to action.
    Fears are pebbles under your feet...YES THEY ARE! And as you walk..the bugs under the pebbles scatter for they know you will overcome.
    You know the power, now!

  8. Ahhh, the wisdom of Dr. Seuss. This is a wonderful way to visualize where you are going and putting your fears into place.

  9. Very interesting. I'll sure give it a try.

  10. Oh I love that. What a great way to think.

  11. You are powerful, and you will go far.

  12. well said and well put. I like it.

  13. What a fantastic practice. I really should keep this in mind myself.

    The picture is very cool!
