What would you do if you weren’t afraid?

Just when he thought he was getting ahead, he would get lost in the corridors.  It seemed his progress was two steps forward and one step backward.  It was a challenge, but he had to admit that being back in the Maze, hunting for Cheese, wasn’t nearly as bad as he feared it might be.

As time went on he began to wonder if it was realistic for him to expect to find New Cheese.  He wondered if he had bitten off more than he could chew.  Then he laughed, realizing that he had nothing to chew on at that moment.

Whenever he started to get discouraged, he reminded himself that what he was doing as uncomfortable as it was at the moment, was in reality much better than staying in the Cheeseless situation.  He was taking control, rather than simply letting things happen to him.
