Happy Fear Monster Friday!

Have you ever gotten into one of those mopey moods where everything seems pointless? George does that occasionally. He usually surprises me with these moods too! Like, I think everything is going fine, but he just decides to throw a temper tantrum for no reason.

I've discovered a few tricks though, to get him back on track.

As noted in the comic, the first trick is...

Fear Monster Trust Fall!

Apr 04, 2014

Happy Fear Monster Friday!

Does your fear monster have some trust issues? George sure does!

It can be hard to trust people, especially if you've been burned in the past. After having a stalker, I still don't tell people where I live. I realize that's a pretty standard small talk question, "where do you live," but I can't help but answer with a snarky, "At home..." I'm working on it.

The thing...

The Art of the Selfie

Mar 28, 2014

Happy Fear Monster Friday!

What is it about that front-facing camera on our phones that just brings out the worst of our insecurities? (Does that happen to your fear monster too? Or is it just George?)

I was never a big fan of the "selfie" until Bradley Cooper and Ellen went and made it all sexy at the Oscars. Since then, I figured, "well maybe I should give it a try."

It's been a battle with...

Impatience with Enlightenment

Mar 21, 2014

Happy Fear Monster Friday! I hope you and your fear monsters are doing well!

My fear monster, George, had a tough week this week. It was time to pay bills and look at the numbers, and although everything seems fine to ME, George had a meltdown due to the uncertainty of this whole starting my own business thing. It's scary. I get it.

But, I had this moment like, "Wow, I should really know...

The Fear of the Unknown

Mar 14, 2014

Happy Fear Monster Friday!

This week, we're talking about the fear of the unknown. Have you ever noticed that when you want to try something new that you fear monster gets all panicked and jittery?

The unknown is scary because we don't have any data to assess the situation! The only way to find out what will happen is to actually try it!

Especially when we're something we really want, the fear...

Arguing with Reality

Feb 28, 2014

Happy Fear Monster Friday! Today we're talking about a pesky little thing called "acceptance."

Do you ever find that your fear monster has a hard time accepting what's going on? (We can blame it on the fear monster, why not...) Well, you're not alone!

I'm going to tell on myself a little bit! George and I had a really hard time with acceptance yesterday. I woke up in a panic because I had so...

Manifesting Problems

Feb 21, 2014

Hey everyone! Happy "fear monster Friday!!" Today's comic was inspired in part by my friends over at Whole Soul Lab. They're talking about "manifesting" things, and they're all really awesome people so you should check it out.

Anyway, if you're familiar with "The Secret" or "The Law of Attraction" then you know that much emphasis has been placed on the power of happy thoughts. And that's...

No matter what your plans are for today, don't forget to love yourself (and your fear monster) too!   I don't know about you, but my fear monster George tends to freak out whenever Valentine's day comes around. I'm usually without a date and he seems to think this means I'm going to...

Why do things the easy way?

Feb 07, 2014

Is there something that you know would make your life better, but you just can't seem to do it? Well, what you're dealing with is most likely the "fear of change monster!"

Change can be scary for those darned fear monsters. To George anyway, he seems to think that if something changes, it's going to be BAD, no matter how much I try to convince him otherwise. He also seems to be under the...
