Fear is a four letter word.

6am balcony.

Good morning everyone!  I'm up at 6:00AM because I'm going to see the Wendy Williams show today! I thought I'd write a quick blog post while I drink my coffee and wait for my hair to dry, reflecting a little bit on yesterday's post.  First, I just wanted to say thanks for everyone's thoughtful comments. Here's something I've been thinking about since I wrote it: you know that thing called fear? I'm pretty sure living life full of it has never done anyone any good.  It's a really easy place to get to really fast and then get paralyzed in for a long time. I'm afraid of climate change, and a ton of other things too. But I'm pretty sure that making huge life decisions based on those fears is not the way to live a life.

So that's where I'm at right now.  Still scared about a lot of things.  Still very much wanting to be honest and open about those fears, but trying not to connect them to how I choose to live my life.

Fear should be a healthy response to danger, but living in it, can cause danger in yourself.

I've always been a relatively high strung person.  (Please see number 19)  And my sensitivity brings out a lot of qualities that I like about myself- the anxiety and fear part though, not so much.  I am aware that my brain goes to these places and I am making a conscious effort to stop it.  Or at least recognize when it's happening and then blog about it to make myself feel better :)

I might turn this topic into a longer post in the future, but right now I have a daytime talk show taping to get to!  I'll be posting pics from the taping to Instagram, so follow along if you want!


  1. Fear is something that we must be very careful, I've been to the point where fear has controlled my life and it's not fun :(

    Thank you for sharing
