{May 29, 2011}   The only thing to fear is….

Fear itself.

I don’t know anyone that ONLY fears that, though. The world is full of people with many fears and some that claim to not have any fears at all but are quickly proven liars, because we all fear something….

One of my subscribed blogs is from a girl who does a Challenge a Day and she recently asked about 5 things that you’re afraid of and posted her own list today. I’m going to follow her lead and say what 5 of my greatest fears are.

  1. My biggest fear is dying alone. By that, I don’t mean dying without anyone who loves me, because I have tons of friends and family that do indeed love me. I mean, being in a situation ALONE and dying without anyone by my side. I’ve never had a fear of flying but the 2 times in my life I flew ALONE, I was incredibly nervous…..if something had happened to the plane, I was totally alone without anyone I loved with me…..not that I would want someone I love to die WITH me….but if I had to be in a situation like on a crashing plane….I would at least like for someone I love to be the last person I see and be beside me, you know?
  2. I fear losing people I love…I’m sure this is a fear I share with many people. I know this is a fear that I will inevitably face one day and I hate that…I hate the idea that someone I love is going to die and I will have to say goodbye to them. BUT I thank God that I will be able to see them again one day. Knowing that the goodbye is not forever makes the fear a little better.
  3. Roaches…need I say more? They are gross and disgusting…especially the really big ones. I will literally freak out and start crying if I see one! EWW!
  4. I fear falling and breaking bones…primarily in my legs or feet. This has been a fear since I fell back in 2003 and broke my fibula. Stairs are the main scare here….since that’s what I fell down.
  5. I fear my weight will keep me from having kids. It’s been my dream for many years to be a mother and I know weight can be an issue to having kids. It inspires me to see people prove that it can still be done but I have to be honest and say this is a fear for me.

So I told you my biggest fears. What are some of your fears?

Jackie Paulson Author says:

My biggest fear is having a Tornado sweep me away into heaven early.

That WOULD be scary….We’ve had tornados close to where we live but I’ve never actually heard or seen one before me. I think if I ever was to see or hear one…I would definitely be scared!

Overcoming Illness With Joy says:

I couldn’t agree more. This last week has changed my life.

I can only imagine…you’re so close to where all the tornadoes hit. Every time I see the footage on TV, my heart aches for all the people affected. Truly heartbreaking and the people of Joplin as well as their loved ones from all over are in my thoughts and prayers.

Because I had kids, I didn’t fear death as much. Now that I have two little ones who count on me, it’s very different. I fear about their health and safety too.I have to admit these are two kinds of fear I really hate about motherhood.

Sorry, I meant before I had kids…

I figured that’s what you meant….I guess whenever I have kids, that will be an added fear on my list but I guess it will be worth it, huh? 🙂

You are right… everybody fears something and dying is up there on all of our lists; mainly because we want to see r kids grow up and more. I wish you prayers for abundant babies. 🙂
Have a Blessed Memorial Day!

You too! and thanks so much for the prayers! 🙂

My fear? Running out of post topics!

That’s no joke there! I have felt like I HAD run out at some point and then miraculously found more!….That’s a scary thought, though!

Thank you for being brave enough to share your fears. I know I have a child already, but I do want another some day and I worry about the weight thing too.

I have many fears . . . There are two that stand out from the rest, one – losing my daughter . . . I can’t even think about it. When I was on Chantix, I had the most horrific nightmares that I still can’t get out of my head. Two – dying before my daughter is grown. My mom was only 2 years older than I am now when she died. The thought is terrifying. I started keeping a journal of letters to my daughter since before she was born just in case.

I think those are common fears of all mothers…losing their child or their child losing them while still so young. 😦
I pray your daughter will be blessed with you for many, many years to come and she will live a long, happy life. The journal of letters is such a sweet idea for her….I’m sure she will love to read those someday….and I hope for your sake that she can read them with you still there for her to talk about it with!

Dayle says:

It’s funny, I have a box of memories to give her when she’s grown. I have it all planned out . . . to give her the box (well, probably boxes by then) and the journal(s) when she goes away to college (or whatever she happens to do after school). 🙂

Awww, I know she will love it! Such an awesome idea!
