Today’s challenge is about what you’re afraid of. Naturally my biggest fear is losing the people I love, but I think that’s an almost universal one. So I’ll talk about something else!
One of my big fears is not experiencing enough.
Even though I love the idea of being busy, busy, busy, I’m also quite prone to complacency. I mean, I write this to you sitting on my couch in leggings, a blanket over my legs like an old lady, binging on Top Gear on Netflix. And I’m totally happy! But sometimes I worry my tendency to be a homebody means I’m missing out and I really worry about that. I want to say I’ve traveled more, done more with my life, seen many things. Yes, I’m still young, but I always get this nagging feeling when I’m just hanging out, that I should be out! Doing something!
I almost wonder if it’s a generational thing. Don’t your parents have all these awesome stories that seemingly put any you have to shame? Maybe I should say that my fear is not having enough stories!
Anyway, this fear is part of the reason I’ve been a little delinquent with my blogging. For awhile I just wanted to focus my energies doing other things, not being constantly glued to a computer. I do think there’s room for both, but I really needed to step away for a bit and figure out how.
