ALTER: to make different without changing into something else.  

Let’s alter a photo as a metaphor for how we can alter and transform our thoughts into something quite different without changing our essence.

Sometimes I start the day absolutely terrified, full of anxiety and fear.  Taking time to address my habit of catastrophizing my worries, I can slowly calm down, transform and alter.  I can see new options, new ways of interpreting my worries, new ways of finding hope.  I’m still me, but stronger.

The original.
Photocopy. Cutout. Cut up. Glue down.

 
Transform and interpret!
