Today, at work, the question, "What are you afraid of?" popped up.
Some things I am afraid of are, heights, really deep water, spiders, and.... (sometimes)... the dark.
I came home and thought a lot about this and why I am afraid to walk to my car after my night class and why I feel so intimidated by the dark.
I know why.
And tonight I finally got to watch this Thursday's episode of Private Practice and I felt really strongly about it.
So.... I write.
I don't want to be afraid of the fact that home invasions have increased in our city.
I don't want to be afraid that one day I won't be able to protect my family when I need to.
I don't want to be afraid because of my lack of experience...
I want to be able to rely on my ability to read situations and people.
I want to know what to do and when, in any situation.
I want to be strong.
So, what do I do about it?
I will run... not for exersize.... for stamina.
I will learn... not English courses... self defense.
I will be aware... take the precautions I need in order to keep myself and my family safe.
I will not be afraid.
