cliché: know where you stand

Meaning: certain of your position (example)

Rewrite 1: know where your feet meet the peet
Rewrite 2: be one with your position
Rewrite 3: be certain of your soundings
Rewrite 4: stand firm with your roots
Rewrite 5: know where the wind can't blow you, the river can't move you, and the cattle can't run you over

Comment: This one, which took a few days to work on, can be both about current position and how you see things, so I tried to reflect both.

Have any clichés you're wondering about that I haven't attempted yet? Let me know and I'll give it a try. Give me a shout out on Twitter and Facebook.
