It's Day 7 of the challenge and I know what you are thinking; this is a list post and you probably think list posts are a cop out and a bit uninspiring but please read on and let me know your thoughts.
I'm afraid you will think this is a cop out!
I'm afraid of spiders! I'm afraid you will think this is a cliche but I really don't like them. I know people believe spiders in the UK don't bite but I know they do because one of the little beasts bit me! My ankle swelled so much I had to go to the doctors!
I'm afraid of stepping out of my depth in the sea because I know a shark will get me! Seeing Jaws as a small child hasn't helped. I like to feel my feet on the sea floor or I start to panic and that's not a good look!
I'm afraid of fish heads on plates. I can eat any type of fish so long as the fish isn't watching me. If I am ever served a complete fish I use the napkin as a shroud!
I'm afraid of having my hair cut. My hairdresser is afraid of cutting it.
I'm afraid of losing my teeth. I've always had these recurring dreams that my teeth fall out. Why?
I'm afraid of public speaking and no, it doesn't help to imagine your audience in just their underwear!
I'm afraid of belly buttons. I don't like to look at them or touch them, they are weird aren't they or is it just me!
I'm afraid of making mistakes. I think this stems from being a perfectionist. I've been like this for as long as I can remember but I'm trying really hard to work on this.
I'm afraid that when I get older I'm going to look back and wish I'd taken more chances, had more fun and gone on adventures.
