For the daily challenge we are being asked to contemplate life without fear. Boy where do I start.
I was very timid as a child and never really stood up for myself until my mid-teens, even as an adult it was not until my 30’s when I started standing up for myself. So if I was fearless from day one I am sure things would have been totally different. I would have done things and taken chances on things that my timid nature would not have permitted. Maybe they would have all turned out bad anyway. Maybe the little bumps and scrapes I did encounter would not have been so little.
I know that if I had been fearless when I was 16 I would have probably been accepted into the School of Hotel Management and Catering and not rejected for being too immature or timid. That would have lead to a completely different path than the one that life took me on to here.
So as I contemplate the possibilities of being fearless and living out that fantasy I find it difficult to look so far back. It is difficult to decide what things you may or may not have done back then with a fearless attitude. All I know is life would have been totally different to the one I have lived and it would mean that I would never have met the love of my life. So I am glad I wasn’t and am not fearless.
