Fear Cure

A  L  O  H  A !
Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle 'HONU
Thanks, Carroll Cox  Link

"Friendship with ones self 
is all important, 
because without it 
one cannot be friends 
with anyone else in the world."
Eleanor Roosevelt

"Those that are a friend 
to themselves
 are sure to be 
a friend to all."

What is the sound of Cloud Hands clapping?

"If life 
were predictable 
it would cease 
to be life..."
              Eleanor Roosevelt

"The secret to happiness 
is to put the 
burden of proof 
on unhappiness."  
              Robert Brault


I'm timid.

Now I'm strong enough
to accept that.
No more covering it up
with boldness.

So I am free
to share with You
a fear talisman
that works for me;

It is called:

Today Is Not The Day

Today is not the day.

That thing you most fear
will not be coming today;
Salutations and
burden of proof
upon ye!

Forever is comprised
of Now
riding the rail of your 
so to speak,
growing so wise
the truth is a squeak;

But I can perceive it
beneath world's din
tune out the inessential
and move right in.

Thank YOU
for visiting today!
                Warmly, cloudia

I never thought of you as timid, but rather a bold, adventuresome spirit!

Today is not the day. Good one. I shall use it myself!

Myrna R. said...

I used to be timid. No more.
Your poem speaks to me. May none of our fears come true today.
Have a good day.

I'm happy today isn't the day for the things I fear Cloudia, tomorrow neither :) the clap of the clouds known as thunder!

Teresa said...

I believe that thunder is the sound of cloud hands clapping... I think that embracing ourselves as we are and loving ourselves any way is the first step in transcending our limitations.

Aloha Cloudia, dreaming away on your photos, and living your quotes, moment by moment!

Just came back from the land of sea turtle lat week :)

Kay said...

These are such wise thoughts, Cloudia. I certainly would never think of you as timid either. I see you as someone conquering the world, one kindness at a time.

By the way, you must have been watching the Roosevelts. We really enjoyed it. Art said we're going to have to go through Roosevelt withdrawal this week.
