“Life has no remote. Get up and change it yourself.”
-Mark A. Cooper
I just love this quote! I found it by just searching for uplifting quotes on the internet like usual, but became intrigued by, just who is this guy? Is he a motivational speaker? Is he an industry magnate? Turns out, he writes fiction for young adults. This particular quote is from Operation Einstein from the Edelweiss Pirates series which is set during World War II in Nazi Germany. https://markacooper.com/edelweiss-pirates
I was totally going to buy whatever book this awesome quote came from, until I actually found out what book it actually came from.
In short, Nazis. Freak. Me. Out.
They always have. Even as a small child, watching The Sound of Music I became terrified when the Nazi part started. To this day, if I watch it, I turn it off at that part! Every time I see something Nazi-related (like all Indiana Jones movies) a huge fear in the pit of my stomach rises, and I really can’t explain why.
Sure, their leaders and agenda were evil and sadistic, but I didn’t experience it. But sometimes, I viscerally feel like it I did. Sometimes, I think a past life is the only way to explain it.
And does this tie in with yesterday’s post about facing your fears? Possibly…probably… Maybe the universe is trying to tell me it is time to conquer this fear once and for all in the safe space of kid’s book.
How scary could that be?
Well, off to buy a book, have a great Tuesday, a transformational Tuesday that is…😉
