I'm the bravest women ever!
Just kidding.... I have lots of little irrational fears (and a few big, rational ones. ;) )
I'm afraid of....
scary movies - I hate them!
my parents dying
Libby or Zeke dying
my sister dying
Ok, any member of my family dying (clearly)
getting fired - I've never been fired!
burning alive in a house fire
getting in a car accident
Ok, so I'm going to stop right now because... umm.... isn't everyone afraid of this stuff? I mean, really? It's not like I'm a hermit that cowers in my bed all day hiding out in the house because I'm scared of getting in a car accident!
Something I am truly, 100% afraid of is the possibility of me never getting married and having children.
I seriously think about this one and it devastates me. I know I would be okay because I have a wonderful network of friends, a great career (and working on a new one!), and a fantastic immediate and extended family but I want to create my own family and find that guy that I can call family.
When I get down thinking about the possibility of this not happening I think about something one of my best friends Shannon said to me once. She said,
"Amber, that won't happen to you. The possibility of you not getting married is impossible because people like you don't just not get married. It's silly to even think about it. So, stop worrying about it."
It's a fear of mine, but when I start to get scared I think of what Shannon said to me and I smile. :)
