What scares you

“Try a thing you haven’t tried before three times – once to get over the fear, once to find out how to do it, and a third time to find out whether you like it or not” ~ Virgil Thomson

First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt once said, “Do one thing every day that scares you.” Whether I intend to or not, whether I want to or not, I do the same frightening thing every day. I can tell you I don’t like it, and I most assuredly haven’t figured out how to make it work.

    I think, lately, I am scared of being scared.
    Isn’t that ironic?

    I wonder all the time “what” it is I am truly frightened of. Perhaps that why I don’t write anymore.

    I’m so sorry I missed so much of your writing lately, but I hope to catch up a little today. XO

    Agree. Today I ran 8 miles…I hate it and when I’m by myself (like today) I am afraid…not for being alone, I’m pretty scary-enough to get left alone- but scared I’ll not be able to finish or that I will fail…so whether I fail or not I think I kinda win cuz I tried…today rocked but there’s always tomorrow 😬
