I'm not afraid of heights.
I don’t fear the dark, spiders or needles, horror movies or failure. - -
Walking alone at night doesn't nerve me up and when I teach in front of a group, my voice is steady and my hands don't shake. -
Some of my friends may call me “fearless” but that is entirely untrue.
I am afraid of so many things.-
I am afraid of losing the ones I love.
I am afraid of dying and leaving behind my family that needs me.-
I am afraid for the millions of animals everyday that are abused, used or discarded.
To live in fear, is no way to live.-
I'm afraid of people who drive too fast, text , eat their lunch and put on a full face of makeup while driving. Or maybe that stems from an even deeper issue - fear that we have lost connection, fear of inattention, fear of distraction, fear of surface dwelling.-
I'm afraid of chasing that dangling carrot of consumerism and that somewhere along the way, I'll get lost (or already am lost) in all these Things Things Things.
Of being nothing more than another mindless drone .Doing more, buying more, having MORE.-
I'm afraid of the standards set for beauty and self-love. Of the things we do to our bodies in the name of that beauty. That “Self Love” is a more of a tee shirt slogan instead of a way of life.-
I'm afraid of stifling my emotions, my urges, my feelings , my beliefs and I'm afraid of exploring them too.-
I'm afraid of the hate I watch bloom around me. Of ignorance and intolerance and greed that can overshadow the very best in people.-
I'm afraid of so many things, but being afraid is not the same thing as being powerless.
Fear is NOT an excuse for inaction, and that’s a reminder for me as anyone else.-
