Day 7 - Things I'm Most Afraid Of

Day Seven of the Blog Everyday in May Challenge and today is all about Things I'm Most Afraid Of.  

I try not to be afraid of things but lets face it, that is not real.  Everyone is afraid of something. Spiders, snakes, the get the idea.

But I think this post is supposed to make you dig a little deeper; be a little more vulnerable   "Me?  I'm scared of everything!  I'm afraid of who I am, of what I saw and most of all I'm scared of walking out of this room and never feeling the way I feel, when I'm with you."  Oh wait.....that was Baby in Dirty Dancing.  My fault.  I digress.

I'm afraid of Loss.  Pain.  Getting sick without the ability to heal and recover.  I'm afraid that I will have to live without my husband and best friend.  Regret.  Worrying that people won't like me.  I'm afraid of gaining back the weight I worked so hard to lose.  Not having balance in my life.  Feeling alone.  Not accomplishing my hopes and dreams. Never checking off the items on my bucket list.  I'm afraid of not living my life to the fullest.  Not taking chances.  Not growing.

But I think being afraid is good.  It pushes you to want more and to need more out of life.  It makes you want to succeed so you can look fear right in the face and say, "Look at me!  I was afraid but I did it anyway!"
