Nothing is as bad as your mind makes it
Fear is a liar
Prone to hysterical meanderings
Don’t listen to it
When you get out of your head
To do what you have to do
Remember your angels will be there too
But they can’t help you while you prevaricate and cringe listening to the mutterings of internal fear.
Instead they wait patiently by the door
Tennis shoes on (white of course)
Waiting for you to make up your mind already
And when you do
I do this before every big bike ride I go on. Nervously I check my gear is tied down, check my zips. Pat my pockets. But eventually you just have to swing the leg over, start the engine and ride.
And I have had a few near misses and mishaps but never have I been left for more than 5 minutes without an angel appearing to help me. They are everywhere.
Except in my mind – no one can help me there but me.
So – thought for the day
