Just some thoughts...

Every day, as I write Poetiquejustis, I pray it will be a blessing to someone.
Today, I hope it is you.

Hey, Fear! There Has Been a Change in the Menu

If you want to conquer fear, 
don't sit home and think about it.
Go out and get busy.
Dale Carnegie
Is there something that you want but cannot grasp it?
I know where it is living!

 I can see it!
You can see it!
Over there...just beyond the excuses that fear has carefully crafted on your behalf

  You dream about it....but you think the fear (the big bully) is bigger than your dream
Now how did that happen?
How did the fear get so big and fat that it started running the show?
Like anything else, fear can only grow if we nurture it

If we give it a reason to live
If we feed it
If we keep it alive

Fear gets fat on  steady diet of what ifs

And shrinks to nothing when you quit feeding it!

Fear is sneaky..it loves to snack on new beginnings

But shoves away  that plate of all the things that get you out that door and in to your future

Fear is mean
It shows you the end very clearly    who you want to be    what you want to do    
it is all right there 
all you have to do is grab it

But then fear keeps you from doing what you have to do to get there

And you find yourself sitting alone once more with fear

Back at a beginning

Feeding your fears

Someone told me the other day that he would never allow another person
to tell him he could not do the things his own fear tells him not to do
Today is the day
Tell fear the party is over
Tell fear that it is going to have to find another meal ticket
Because you have someone you have to be

and you won't be back for the rest of your life
and that's poetiquejustis
