Okay, I’m a slug. I’ve been feeling tired and drained, I’ve been busier than busy, and I probably have more excuses than shoes for not finishing this challenge by now. That’s saying a lot. But finally, I’m on Day 8. Fears. Better delayed than never
I think if you had asked me about 15 years ago what my fears are, I would have a list longer than a five year old’s wish list for Christmas. Before my husband now, I was afraid of a lot. But I’ve come far since then. I’ve faced many obstacles, challenges and uneasiness… and have conquered several! Finding yourself helps you do that. There are still a few things that scare me… some beyond words. So lets explore and see if I can find eight.
2. That my kids will find true happiness in their lives as they get older.
3. Someday I’ll actually look as old as I am.
5. Spiders bigger than a nickel.
6. That my health will take a turn for the worse.
7. Driving on ice.
8. Living one day longer than my husband.
A while back I could have added other fears. Things like mice, eating raw clams, speaking in public, and dealing with my ex-husband face to face. Not anymore. I’ve faced those things and, while discovering strength within myself, I have learned to conquer them. Well, I haven’t really conquered mice. I just don’t stand on tables when I see them anymore. Then again… I don’t pet them and invite them to dinner. Same with my ex.
Go ahead. Make a list of your fears. And see if, by this time next year, maybe–just maybe–you can cross at least one of them off the list. Find it within yourself to step outside of your comfort zone and overcome one of your fears! I can’t tell you how invincible you will feel!
