Living Life With Too Much Caution Tape

. at . 3 comments

I’ve been thinking about caution and doodah’s dance moves and what makes me cautious.

Basically, I think I’m too cautious.

  • Maybe it’s that first born thing.
  • Maybe it’s because I am sooo clumsy and if I wasn’t cautious I’d be dead or seriously maimed in other places than my behind.
  • Maybe it’s my nature.

But I’ve been thinking. What would happen if I removed those caution tapes that border me into a lovely, but confined and safe area?


  • I probably won’t run into the street into oncoming traffic. But I might ride a bike between Santa Cruz and San Francisco sharing that little lane with meniacal cars.
  • I probably won’t let each and every man I see lead me into sin. But I might take a dance class and let him lead. Or at least try to let him lead.  🙂
  • I probably won’t eat and eat and eat and eat. But I might be uncomfortable (at times)until I learn to freely accept my body’s yearnings as ok.
  • I probably will never be able to make my living as an artist. But I can beautify my life by living as an artist.

I will give this idea of “living life with too much caution tape” some more thought. I’ll let you know when I come up with my list.

Where does your caution tape needlessly keep you confined?

Where would you like to throw caution to the wind?

    Mmmmm – good post. Your muse is working overtime. 🙂 I especially love this: “I probably will never be able to make my living as an artist. But I can beautify my life by living as an artist.” I love that sentiment – to beautify one’s life by living as an artist.

    And if you’re serious about maybe learning how to be led talk to S or G or the FunGirls. 😉

    I am serious and scared. But I will make the call. :-O

    Thanks for your feedback, Doodah.
