fear. we all got them. some are worse than others. my biggest fears include heights, the doctors, and bugs/spiders. you may have saw earlier that I went zip-lining while I'm down here on vacation and that was an experience. hanging 80 ft and 100 ft off of the ground from a harness. kind of scary!
I screamed and I cried (I also got pizza afterwards!!), but I did something I never thought I would end up doing. did I intend on doing it? no. i was being impulsive and my stepdad bought me a ticket. but I learned something from this experience! I learned that our fears hold us back from trying new things.
While my fears seem small compared to most, they still are a part of me that I want to overcome. when I do something revolving my fears, I feel proud of myself for taking a small step to defeat it. plus it makes a really cool story!!
If it wasn't for my fears, I wouldn't be me. God wants us to overcome our fears and to trust in Him that it would be all right. He wants us to grow and learn new things all of the time. maybe my impulsive idea was God telling me this was a good chance for me to get out of my comfort zone. He wants us to thrive!! -
This picture was taken right after I got my harness removed and we got pizza. this is a real picture of me. no make up, no nothing (just fear in my eyes!!). posting this is extremely hard because all I can do is find insecurities I have, like how you can see how my eyes cross in pictures due to my astigmatism (wear your perscription glasses then!!). hey, any small progress to fight your fears is still progress. Anyway, I hope y'all continue to have a wonderful week and remember to try new things!! ☀️🌿💛
