What’s the thing you’re most scared to do? What would it take to get you to do it?
The thing I’m most scared to do? Honestly, I think the thing I’m most scared to do is fail. There’s nothing in this world that would make me actually ‘want’ to fail.
I’ve done a lot of things that I was really scared of in the last few months. I packed up my life into boxes, put everything in my mother’s garage and set out on a whirlwind adventure. I’ve been hesitating on this for a few years because I was scared that I couldn’t do it. Scared that I couldn’t be away from home, my family, my friends and actually function. I’ve since proved myself wrong. In the first week I felt lonely, but I wasn’t distraught like all of the other times I took a new adventure. It was after I passed the two week mark that I knew I had really grown up a lot in the last few years.
I can really look back fondly on the last couple of years and track my progress. It was when I finally realized that my ‘fears’ were really holding me back and that I needed to overcome them when I started to really progress. I took an adventure abroad and came back with a firm goal. That was in May: fast forward 5 months to me landing at Fukuoka airport, after having to run through the Narita airport. Talk about a crazy day.
But I’ve conquered a lot of my fears and really surprised myself recently. I still have fears, but none that are ever going to physically hold me back anymore. The only thing I’m really scared of at this point is relationships, but that’s a whole other can of worms. Another day, perhaps.

Miss me? =] I finally got the internet hooked up in my apartment. I’ve got a lot of creative writing ideas floating around, so be sure to check ‘Scribblin’ About Life’ in the follow days. I’ll post links to it over here, but just an FYI. ^^
It feels good to be back.
