Where a flash mob of folks spend five minutes all writing on the same topic and then share ‘em over @thegypsymama.
The word this week: afraid
Life is hard. We live in a big world where bad things happen to people. There are so many things to be afraid of. Funny thing is, I’m not afraid of the big bad things. I’m afraid of little things. I’m afraid I’ll sleep through the alarm in the morning so my brain wakes up 90 minutes before I need to wake up. I’m afraid I won’t be able to keep up with all the high tech innovations at my job, yet by the end of the day, I’ve somehow survived. I’m afraid I’ll run out of money completely, even though I never have. I used to be afraid of needles. But then I got a bunch of tattoos and realized how silly that fear was and it was instantly gone. I’ve conquered many fears in my life, both rational and irrational. Now if I could just conquer the little ones, life would be nearly perfect. 🙂
