…being scared can be good. It means you are alive. Someone once told me [fear] would make a good movie 20-years from now… those moments that propel us to move forward through the the great unknown.
These days, it seems my great unknown stems from a change in the direction the wind is blowing. My ship has turned north, literally. I have been at the border of Texas and Mexico for 4 years now. If all goes according to plan I may be living along the Canadian border. That is a pretty big change, wouldn’t you agree? Not only in climate but in culture as well.
I have lived mostly in the Southwest region of the United States, New Mexico and California with a small stint in New Jersey. I have grown up with a southwest feel to everything. Relatively calm environment, people, food, etc. One fear I have is that I won’t fit in – odd to say and somewhat irrational.
Anyone else experience an irrational fear?
This last half of 2014 is a bit of a waiting game, which in itself brings about its own set of strange fears and worry. Changes used to bring about excitement and wonder and good feelings… the older I get the less excitement and wonder arises. Instead, life changes weigh more now and you almost have to calculate in order to get a positive or favorable result from it.
