Friday Philosophy…Safety

When I was a child, I was very cautious. I was extremely concerned with safety. I didn’t go through that “invincible” phase that most teenagers seem to enjoy so much.

Now that I’m pretending to be an adult, I’ve noticed that safety is more of an illusion than a reality. I’ve also noticed that growth comes through stepping outside of the spaces in which I feel safe. Translation: the introvert has to speak in public. πŸ™‚

So, some thoughts on safety from bigger brains!

β€œI have found both freedom and safety in my madness; the freedom of loneliness and the safety from being understood, for those who understand us enslave something in us.” ~ Kahlil Gibran

β€œThe ache for home lives in all of us. The safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned.” ~ Maya Angelou

“Safety is something that happens between your ears, not something you hold in your hands.” ~ Jeff Cooper

“In skating over thin ice our safety is in our speed.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Blessings to you all, and NEVER give up!
