Overheard at Table 1: Fear is a Choice

something interesting the other day, a quote that went something like, "Fear is a choice.  Danger is real, but the reaction to it - fear - is something you choose."

That reminded me of Psalm 23, the part that goes, "Yea, though I walk through the shadow of the valley of death, I will fear no evil."

Shadow of the valley of death - that's danger.

But I "will" - as in, "I will myself to do so" - which is not to have a fear of any danger.

Fear is a choice, and I gotta tell ya, I've been choosing wrong for a long time now.

Time to chance my choices.

NOTE: After seeing the video and hearing Will Smith's voice, although I read this somewhere recently, now I think the quote comes from one of his movies.  Which movie, though?  I can't recall.... maybe AfterEarth?
