Learned how to look at FEAR today....

FEAR: fear everything and run
Or
FEAR: Face everything and recover

We've all been facing everything and we will ALL recover!!
Everyone here on PP has made a choice of taking our lives into our own hands and muddling through one of the toughest things we have ever endured and because of this, we will come out shining at the other side. We just have to believe this! Choosing to go THROUGH rather than around will only make us stronger!!

Re: Learned how to look at FEAR today....

You are right! My daughter has a cute little song from kindergarten and she claps her hands and sings about coming to an assortment of obstacles, a puddle, a bunch of tall grass, a mountain etc. She has these little hand actions and sings... "You can't go OVER it....can't go UNDER it...have to go THROUGH it". I always liked it, but this past year when she sings it I realize how true that is in this nasty situation we are all in.

So cute! Too bad we weren't taught these kinds of things when we were so young! Nice to see the awareness they're bringing to the younger kids nowadays!

So true! Though re-reading it I don't think the mountain is part of it...not sure how to go through a mountain...anyway she's right here and she said there's a snowstorm, and a cave too, but no mountain lol. Not sure how much of the deeper meaning behind this song a child this age can fully grasp, but one day they will!!

Re: Learned how to look at FEAR today....

Gotta start somewhere. Even they grasp it in their own little terms now, it sets the stage for later on.....
LoL on the mountain and yes you CAN go through it. I went through one in Virginia! LoL

Re: Learned how to look at FEAR today....

I wish I was a child again...growing up is a trap! I remember when I was a child I would cry sometimes and tell my mom that I did not want to grow up, that I always wanted to be a child...maybe I was predicting my future

The only thing great about growing up is being a mom--nothing tops that!
