Day 8

8 Fears
1. Something bad happening to a family member.

2. Staying overnight alone.  I hate it.  I still "let" my husband go on his weekend trips to his brother's or fishing with our son. I just don't like to be home alone over night.

3. Saying something that will seriously damage a student. I can be sarcastic. I need to watch that!

4. Heights.  I don't even like to walk on the dock at the lake.  Freaks me out.  And getting into a boat is scary too.  I do it because I don't want to be left out, but....

5. Snakes and other creepy crawlies (but not bugs).

6. Things that go bump in the night---you know what I mean.  You wake up to a strange sound and stay awake trying to figure out what it is.  I'm just a big chicken.

7. Hitting a deer on the road at night. I've done it once. Don't want to do it again.

8. Making a fool of myself and having people laugh at me.  I laugh at things I do a lot.  But I'm always afraid that I will do something really stupid that I won't think is funny, but those around me will.

I fight through most of these fears and face them whenever they come up.  But they are still fears....


  1. I went back to your 10th day "secrets list"...yeah, like I'd do anything more than superficial, too! I'm not a divulger of secrets about myself, so if I do this, I'll probably just copy YOUR list!!!

  2. Haha--bet you could come up with your own superficial list!

  3. I'm impressed that you do all those things yet are still fearful of them. It's hard to get over the bumps!
