Yesterday morning, when I was facilitating a therapy group, I drew this picture
which shows a fish in danger.
Yesterday afternoon, when I was in historic Lexington, Massachusetts, USA, I took these two photos, one after another:
For many reasons, I tend to notice potential danger, in the present and in the near future. Do you?
In my personal and professional lives, I spend a lot of time trying to figure out how much danger people are in, as well as how to negotiate and respond to fear. It makes sense for us to be Fearful of Danger, but how can we accurately assess how much danger we’re in, during any particular moment? Fear of danger can save us to live another day; it can also paralyze and imprison us.
What dangers are you in danger of seeing in my other photos from yesterday?
With all the danger, destruction, death, and dragons we deal with, I sometimes suggest this helpful phrase:
It’s safer than it feels.
Is there any danger of my forgetting to express gratitude at the end of this blog post?
