365 Days of Self Discovery: Feelings & Emotions

Day 66

What is your biggest fear? Why do you think you are afraid?

  • My biggest fear(s) are being alone for the rest of my life (dying alone), dying in a traumatic way (car accident, murder, etc). never amounting to something and being at a constant standstill in my life (no investment in buying a house/condo, living paycheck to paycheck, having to work two jobs, not being able to afford traveling, no sense of self growth or accomplishment. 
I assume most people have a fear of something, no matter how big or small. What are your biggest fears — and why?

Hello! College graduate in exercise science and ACSM Certified Personal Trainer. My blog has all kinds of fun topics, something for everyone who is anyone that involves themselves with fitness. I like to think of fitness as a confidence booster, something to make us feel good and look good & pushes us to do things that make us feel more productive, unstoppable and stronger mentally and physically. My blog focuses on building people, and helping people see their true potential, while also sharing my journey with workouts, competing with powerlifting, and sharing how to's on workouts, so you step inside the gym with more knowledge. I don't know everything but I am on a voyage to build my character, my strength and work on my weaknesses --- with awesome people in my corner who support me and my goals. I plan on being your cheerleader, friend, coach and trainer all-in-one and most of all, I want to be your listener, the person who can listen and gain more knowledge about you and learn what makes fitness important to you; what's your why! (Your why will carry you to the finish line). It's important to have purpose for something, because you will need that purpose when you start to give up on yourself or want to quit. "Don't let the fire that guides you, dim" - Shay-lon Besides the fitness stuff, I reside in Ohio, love dogs and love pizza. Typical 26 year old trying to build an empire that brings out the best in others and makes me the best person I can be in all aspects in my life. Before I die, I want a reason to live, and I was given that reason each day I am able to wake up --- I have learned to not take life for granted and to explore as much as possible because to live with zero regrets would be fantastic! "I've conquered many things, but I still have much to learn about life, because nobody can know everything. & every battle is different" - Shay-lon

  1. The fears you listed are common especially living paycheck to paycheck.
    Overcome a fear is hard but yet feels like paradise when you do overcome it.
    My fear is that I won’t make it to heaven when I die

    1. Really? what do you think will keep you from entering heaven?
      I know what it was like to live paycheck to paycheck, thankfully, no longer is this the case but tomorrow is never promised and it could always happen again.

    1. Yes, this is true. I do not have children but I know from stories and from court cases people have been through and how a child turns up, it seems it always comes down to whether they had a good mom or not. I believe after a certain age, it no longer should come down to the parenting but rather the child himself, because in the end, we have a choice and our parents can steer us in the right path but we can always choose to go down the opposite.

  2. “Why have kids?” That’s a question couples are increasingly prone to ask. If you were to ask your grandparents or great-grandparents why they had children, they would probably give you a baffled look and say, “That’s just what married couples did.” Today’s couples, however, stop to ask, “Why?”

    We don’t just do things out of tradition or expectation. We don’t just have kids because that’s what’s expected or because it’s what our parents did. We are more likely to have kids as a statement, as a lifestyle choice. But the choice to have children now sits on a shelf in a growing supermarket of options, prompting couples to ask why that particular choice is better than any other.

    Couples weighing the decision to start a family are increasingly surrounded by books, articles and websites spotlighting the costs and sacrifices ahead of them. Those messages encourage couples to think long and hard about the world they’d be bringing children into, and remind them to count all the costs before making such a monumental decision.

    Caution and preparation are helpful, but sometimes it seems that’s all couples can find on the topic of having kids these days. Churches, as well as some pro-family organizations, often have little to offer on this subject. Even friends with strong families and children of their own seem unable to articulate why young couples should pursue what they have.

    Plenty of people have started their families without some sort of great vision. Increasingly, though, it takes vision for “why” to overcome the growing – and often compelling – arguments for “why not.
