[ facing fears ]

8.23.2010

Happy Monday my friends! I hope your weekend was grand. Mine sure was and i'll post some photos to show. My niece Ellie was here for a majority of the weekend. We watched the polo match Friday night, went for a bike ride, played on the swings in the park, did lots of art projects, made some food, watched movies and much more! Phew. I'm so glad i have energy to keep up with her! I just haven't had a moment to get the photos off of the camera.

In the meantime, last night Christopher and i were watching old episodes of Modern Family, {god i love that show} and one we watched was about facing fears. It got me to thinking.

What really are my fears?

I definitely have a fear of never getting matched and when i do, not being the best parent i can be. But then, i realize i am being silly. I do have a fear of heights, although i can ride a ski lift, and hike to the highest cliff. ( i just don't look down). I have a fear of bats, of not finishing a race that i run and the #1 fear i have is death. I am afraid to die and i'm afraid of my loved ones dying.

So, fill in the blank, what are your fears? How do you face them? How have you faced them in the past? Are you still afraid?

I have many, many fears. I, like you share the fear of never being matched. I know when the day comes, I will protect my heart for fear of my baby being taken back or the match failing.

On a much "simpler" note, I have a fear of driving over bridges. Lately, I have tried to take routes that will force me to drive over them. It is a creepy feeling to me when driving over them.

Good question, thank you for posting!

This is a great question that I do my best to keep in check. I have fears that range from minimal, to large - something like..should i start my own business? Will I succeed? It is a huge fear I have.

On a smaller note, I loathe spiders and squeal like crazy when I see them!

I fear bats as well! I biggest fear is never being a mommy.
