Being scared…

“Do one thing every day that scares you.”
Mary Schmich


No, thank you!
I have no interest in doing something every day that scares me.
In fact, I have no interest in doing something that scares me, ever.
I’ll do something that makes me anxious. I think that happens every day.
But do something that scares me…on purpose?  I think not.

In my misspent youth, I did scary things all the time.
I was not the smartest one out there.
I didn’t know how scary it was out there until I came back to earth.
Sometimes my head is in the clouds and my mind wanders
but my feet are firmly planted and do not stray to scary places.
And that’s the way I like it!

  1. I am totally with you on this. I have no desire to do scary thrill-seeking things. Life is scary enough all by itself! I do try to push my own boundaries a bit so that anxieties don’t make me a prisoner, but I also know my own comfort levels and doing crazy things isn’t ever in close range! Like you, I’ve already done enough dumb stuff to last a timeline! 🙂

  2. I with you too. I went out on two job interviews on Thursday, my nerves got the best of me on one, that was scary. Just driving on the freeways in California can take you to a scary enough level.
    Feet planted is a feeling I wish I had.

        1. It is not fun looking for a job. I am so glad I am done with that part of my life. Often when folks get to the drug test stage they sort of disappear never to be heard from again. Happened many times where I used to work.

          1. The drug test is my easy test, always good. They spelled my name wrong, story of my life so it always looks like I lied. They do a background check, that’s when you wonder what are they looking for. I’m not going to stress out, if I get it then I will be the happiest girl around. If not, I will just keep trying.
