Have you ever seen a kitten discover it's own reflection? Quite amusing to watch, as they puff up in shock, arch their backs and try to intimidate this strange 'new cat.'
I'm a little like that at times. Like the kitten in front of the mirror, I in front of my own thoughts seem nothing more than a complete spazz, at least lately when I'm facing my fears.
Thinking about it now with a cooler head, I'm sorting through what should be of legitimate concern and what is more a matter of me letting fear get in the way. Both need to be dealt with.
I do remember, at some point, packing along my courage to take with me when I came here...
