This poem by Mark Nepo was my "Reflection for the Day."  It seemed appropriate to share it --

The Thing About Fear

We try to avoid it, distract ourselves,

even put others in the way. Because it

makes what is necessary seem monumental.

It makes what is needed seem uncrossable.

Yet when we stumble over the line, or are

loved over the line, or, in our exhaustion,

fall beyond our pain, what we feared

was a fall to our death turns out

to have been the next step.


May your day be blessed!
