The only thing to fear is fear itself...
What does that even mean? Like a 90's motivational poster quote, only it's not motivational at all.
Seeing as yesterdays topic felt a little heavy I don't think today's post about fear should be heavy.
Side note: Of course my biggest fear is getting a phone call that something really really bad has happened to someone I love and I'm sitting here on the other side of the world, but just thinking about this makes me a little crazy. Hence the different take on the topic of the day.
What am I NOT afraid of anymore:
* Monsters under my bed
Well technically we still only have a mattress on the floor, so technically there could be no technical monster under said bed.
*Getting a note sent home to my parents because of homework not done, naughty behavior, injuring other classmates.
*Not having date for the Matric Farewell (Prom)
*Not working abroad. I used to say, before moving to Vietnam, that I was more scared of not taking on that adventure than actually taking on that adventure.
*Misspelling a word on the board. (I used to be a English Teacher ESL)
*Missing a curfew.
*Being hi-jacked at the traffic light.
*Fitting in with the cool kids
* Wetting the bed because I played with fire (this might be a cultural reference)
*Not finding a husband, and being single forever and ever.
*Messing up someones international travel plans (I used to be a travel agent)
*Failing a test/ Forgetting about a test/ Getting a B on a History tests
... although, I still have nightmares about that.
*My red Ford Escort dying on me while driving at night (ah first car memories)
So yay for not being afraid of these things anymore!
