    Hi All,

    I'm back after taking a lovely break with friends down in Devon (England). At first I thought to myself that I should either wait until I return to start the SEP or that I should continue doing it every day throughout my break "because it's better to be consistent". Then I caught myself with the "shoulds" and I promptly told that that "should" to get lost, i'll do it anyway I please.

    The break in itself had a big mission behind it. I am considering moving to Devon after having lived in smokey old London for most of my life and making such a big change is fearful. If I were to sum up TMS in one word it would be "fear" which is a bit generic but it does sum it up very well. My letter to "fear" focusses mostly on the irrational unnecessary ones;

    You have been up until now controlling most of my life, I find you stifling and something of a fascist. You prey on my weaknesses and indeed you seem to multiply and intrude into all areas of my life, I think you are actually trying to kill me. But I see you now for what you really are, you hijack my "innocence" and twist my sincerety so as to suck out the very light that is my life, my being. I'm impressed with your power but you know what ? I'm not going to feed you anymore, this is why you have been so powerful. You are NOTHING without me, I am owner of my life and give you marching orders, so f**k off out of my life, you are a dirty stinking parasite with no power of your own. You are but an illusion.

    Bye bye, don't call me and I won't call you !

    Hi, Willow. You're telling Fear to go f--k itself, and that's good. Try not to ever think the worst. It rarely if ever happens.
    Think THE BEST!

    Moving to Devon could be great for you. I had a make a move a few years ago and it helped a lot to make a list... reasons why I would be leaving unhappy things behind and what I would gain by moving to a new place. It helped me to imagine myself in the happier place. Then I just moved there and it was a wonderful thing.

    There are some excellent videos on Youtube about overcoming fear that you might take a look at.
