8 Fears

Hi everyone!

How was your Monday? Mine was awesome because I had the day off from work and got a ton of stuff accomplished!

I started my morning off with a great workout, check it out here! After the sweaty workout I decided to work on some house projects {details coming soon!} and then got cleaned up and made my way to Target to return and buy a few things. B and I ended our night with a great dinner from Cook Smarts and watching some TV.

I had horrible lighting so their picture will have to do!

So I have not been doing this challenge in a row but I think I enjoy this way better; and 10 days of all about me could be a little much! If you missed the other 2 check them out…

Today is all about my fears. I think we all go through a point in our lives when we fear something, sharing something “negative” about myself is hard and it makes me open up and be all mushy so just bear with me :).

1. I fear… driving over bridges. As a kid I would always hold my breath if we crossed a bridge just in case the car dropped into the water, I was ready to go!

2. I fear… car crashes. Plain and simple, I was in a pretty bad accident growing up and it just freaked me out so much. I am much better now but I still can get anxious when driving around a sharp bend or seeing an accident that has happened.

3. I fear… the dark. I can sit in our apartment with all the lights off, but if I am in a car and it is dark outside, I get really anxious. I have no idea why and it is super weird.

4. I fear… I won’t be successful in my career. I am planning on going back to school after B is done with school, but right now with it being so far away it is hard to even think about success.

5. I fear… Not being a good mom. I know this is silly and B and I have YEARS before we want kids, but my mom was such a great mom, I feel their is no way I will be able to live up to her and everything she did for my sisters and our family.

My awesome parents

My awesome parents!

6. I fear… B won’t get a job after school. B is the hardest worker I know. He works all day, comes home and work, and turns right back around the next day to do it all over again. I just really hope all of his hard work gives him the dream job he is looking for!

7. I fear… Cancer. My grandfather is currently battling stage 4 colon cancer. Colon cancer runs in my family and has taken lives of some of our family members. I have a huge fear that one day this will happen to me, that is why I try to be the healthiest person with my diet and exercise.


8. I fear… the day I can no longer run. This is so trivial and stupid, but I have thought about this many times before while out on a long run. When will I have my last run? I hope to run forever but I know that will not happen. I can only keep moving forward and never take a run for granted.

Just keep running...

Just keep running…

Your Turn! 

Do you have more personal fears or fears of like spiders? 

Feel free to share your fears as well!

  1. If you haven’t read it yet, read Murakami’s What I Talk About When I Talk About Running it might help allay the running fear, or intensify it. It’s a stunning memoir and gave me the boosted confidence to actually try and take running seriously after never being a runner.

  2. I appreciate that last one more than you know. I have an incurable neurological disease and can no longer run normally. It makes me wish everyone were grateful–never taking that beautiful gift for granted.

    • Oh my goodness I am so sorry to hear. I never take a run for granted and if I am feeling blah I just think about this and it really helps. Thanks so much for sharing!
