Alice Through The Looking Glass

Daily Draw: Navigators of the Mystic Sea ~ 7 of Swords

Is this figure sneaking out, sneaking in, sneaking up upon, sneaking away from, hiding from itself, or lost in a scary place?

I'm reminded by this card of how many emotions we use to mask fear. Anger usually being the first choice. We dramatically alter our lives in order to get away from fear, changing jobs/changing partners/changing locations...I've found when I've confronted my fears rather than retreating from them, what I've feared isn't such a much. Too bad it took 50-something years to figure that out.

"It is well known that "problem avoidance" is an important part of problem solving. Instead of solving the problem you go upstream and alter the system so that the problem does not occur in the first place." ~ Francis Charles Publius 1933-
