Don’t let anyone pull your strings 

also means 

don’t You pull your own strings! 
We pile on a lot of guilt, worry,

wanting to please others 
(which I must say is a major pulling 

of anyone's strings) 
along with a host of other

unnecessary hang-ups 

we stack upon ourselves that hold us back. 
Keep your insecurities in check
because if you don't,

they will allow OthersYou 

to pull your strings.
So … 

embrace your insecurities, then they
won’t d
ominate your life & control you! 

Own it!

​ ​the Story behind

Don't Let Anyone Pull Your Strings!

To learn more about my camera, I decided to take a basic camera course at the Cape Cod Art Center in Barnstable, MA. 

     Our instructor gave us an assignment to create something different.  I decided to let my imagination fly.  I took my stuffed animal, Koko, and this female puppet I got in Spain, and went to work.  

     It took me several hours to get this whole scene set up.  First, I had to conquer Koko seating on the top of my lounge chair by using fish wire and clear tape.  The next feat was keeping his hands up to hold the wooden stick that moves her strings.  Keeping the page in an upright position was another feat.  I got a small rock and put it behind the page, carefully positioning it so it wouldn't show.

     When the teacher put my photo up on the screen to have the class critique and review it, I looked around to watch their initial reaction.  I was happy to see smiles. 

      Later, I decided to put it in a photo competition our camera store was having, but they required each photo to have a title.  My friend said, "I've got it.  Don't let anyone pull your strings.

     Viola!  He hit the nail on the head. 

      So, please remember . . . ​"Don't let anyone pull your strings!"
