A Deep Question, Answered

Hey there guys and dolls… so I’ve been doing a lot of reading lately, and while reading the book “Lean In” I came across a line that has me doing a lot of thinking. “What would you do if you weren’t afraid?” Most of my friends seem to think I’m fearless anymore, that I am completely alright with myself, and that I’ve started to get away from the things that haunt me. I’ve asked a few friends what they would do if they weren’t afraid, and one turned the question back to me. What would I do if I weren’t afraid? It really is a very good question. A question to which I can only answer I’d live life.

 

If I weren’t afraid I wouldn’t hide myself so damn much. I wouldn’t care what anyone thought of me ever, and I might actually be completely happy. I would be able to step out of this shell that I’ve lived in for so many years. If I weren’t afraid, I would simply live life and smile. I would leave this hell that I’m in right now, go away and never come back, and give her the life that I know she desperately needs… the one that she truly deserves. I would love him, without fear, and know deep within my heart and soul that he knows how much I do love him.

 

So many times as females, and probably even males, we learn to adapt because of our fears, but we rarely face them. When it is time to stop being afraid? When do we start to live life the way we want to? Starting now, I’m going to do just that… STOP being afraid. There is no going back on it, or letting it fall to the side like so many things do. You have to do this for you, and that’s great, but now I have to do this for me.

 

I’m a mother, a girlfriend, a lover, a witch, a woman, a submissive, a switch, and god dammit I WILL live. To everyone reading this, if you don’t care, then that’s awesome, and if you do then that’s awesome too. I’m not writing this for you, but I do have a question for you… well a couple of questions I guess.

  1. When is it time to stop being afraid?
  2. What would you do if you weren’t afraid??

I guess that’s all that’s on my mind. I think that’s good for now anyways. I’ll keep you updated no matter if you want it or not. One day has to be the day that starts the rest of your life, why not today?
