"To fear is one thing.
To let fear grab you by the tail and swing you around is another."
~ Katherine Paterson ~

For many years now, I have made an effort to live free from fear, 
as if that were possible. 
Now I realize that fear is part of being human. 
I can't escape it.
The choice is to resist
or accept it.
To run away
or to face it.
To fight
or to dance.

I have compassion for the fear that I feel.
