In the second installment of “30 Things My Kids Should Know About Me”, I have to tell 3 legitimate fears that I have and how they became fears.  And no, I don’t really have a fear of vampires – although if I came across one I’d run.  🙂

  1. I am fearful of someone hurting my daughter.  The world is so different from when I was growing up.  It’s no longer safe for kids to play outside unattended, no more bike-riding adventures (all day) without an adult, and trick-or-treating is done at the mall now instead of door-to-door.   Whether it’s physically or mentally, the thought of anyone harming her in any way terrifies me.
  2. I have a fear of a life filled with regrets.  There have always been so many things that I wanted to do, but never did due to self-doubt, discouragement, etc.  When I look back I regret not believing in myself enough to do the things that I wanted to do.  Going forward, I’m determined to do my best to fulfill my dreams.  And if I don’t do it, it’ll be because I didn’t have the time, not because I was too afraid.
  3. I have a serious fear of being chased – by people, animals, etc.  I’m not sure how this came about but as a child, it was mighty helpful when playing tag!  The thought of being chased made me run even faster!
