Eight Fears

Happy Friday! It has turned into my little Friday tradition for the last couple of weeks to do a little getting-to-know-me post, inspired by this challenge that I found on PB Fingers.


1. Orca whales

I have no idea why I have this fear, but when I am overwhelmed, I will inevitably have a bad dream involving a whale.


2. Not being in control

This is a big reason I am not a big fan of flying.

3. Failure

Sometimes, this inhibits me, but I have gotten a lot better with taking risks. It’s also really helpful that I have kind of just gone for a lot of things and have seen success. It’s the possibility for bigger failures with stronger consequences that freaks me out.

4. Having my dog wander away and not be able to find her way home

I sure do love my Libby girl!


5. Driving in the snow

…something I sure got to do a lot of in this Illinois winter.

6. Getting lost without a cell phone

One time, my sister and I went for a hike in a small forest preserve near us and took a wrong turn. We knew generally how to get back, but we didn’t know how long it would take us to get there. Even that was scary.


7. Getting sick before a big event

I was SO nervous about this before running my first half marathon and full marathon. Now, I’m nervous about getting sick before the wedding! Vitamins will be a must.


8. Knowing there is nothing beneath me

I wouldn’t call it a fear of heights, but I like to feel secure and on solid ground. I am not much of a risk-taker. My fiancé is lucky he got me to step out on to the SkyDeck. 🙂


Can you identify with any of these fears?
Any advice for me to get over them?
