When I saw the challenge topic for the day, I had a brief moment of despair. I tend to lean more towards humorous writing and try as I might, I don’t think that I can work that angle on this post. Yes, I can write about my fear for airports, but I think that today calls for a more serious approach.
I think the one thing I constantly find myself worrying about, is not living life to the fullest. Not traveling enough, not seeing the world. We as humans are meant to see the world. It is there for us to explore, and for us to leave our marks on the people around us.
I worry that I don’t laugh nearly as much as I would like. I allow myself to be consumed by the everyday worries like money and work. I guess it’s the times we live in, but I don’t even care about any of those things, I never have; yet I have been sucked in to this plastic world.
I worry that I find some comfort in the way my life is at the moment, and that one day I will blink and all my moments will have passed… And within that, I wonder if I have the balls to break out and live the life I am meant to live.
I guess my greatest fear is that I will never be able to break out of my comfort zone (which is not really all that comfortable at all), and live.
I recently watched The Secret Life of Walter Mitty and it really made me question my life even more! It made me realize that I WANT to stop living out adventures in my head, and push myself to overcome all my fears, because no one can stop me but me…
