#FinishThis…Week #22

 photo finishthis-linkupbutton-1.jpg
1.  I conquer fear…
Not at all?  I am a very shy, quiet person in person.  A lot of things frighten me and make me shake.  I have gotten better with a lot of things, but I still tend to avoid certain things if I can get away with it.  With that being said though, I now just do whatever is scaring me and by the time I am done, I am like wow I did it and that was fun, I should do it more.  OR oh thank god that is done, no more. 

Below you’ll find one time that I was scared crapless to do something, but I did it and enjoyed it so much.

Chicks Weekend - 1st

2.  I follow my heart…
always.  At least I always try to.  It’ll usually tell me what is right or wrong.  Also, I love that  my heart is so giving and it loves to give and then grows when I do it.

3.  I feed my soul by…
going to the ocean.  The sound of the waves, the feel of the breeze, and the smell all help me feel centered and wonderful and amazing.  There is nothing else like it.  Which is why my favorite place to go is the beach and hopefully get some kind of ocean view/oceanfront hotel or house to rent and there we have happy without having to leave our house/room.

Other forms are reading, game nights/parties, going on hikes, laughing with Jason, and loving/hugging Roxy among a billion other things.

4.  I used to worry about _____ but then I…
uhm….I am a worrier, about EVERYTHING  – I just can’t help it.  I try and just let things be because my worrying about it isn’t going to change it, but it still needles away at mean bugs me and sometimes makes for sleepless nights.  I need to just stop and enjoy life and stop the needless worry that I really can’t do a thing about.  I try.  Especially when it comes to Jason’s high blood pressure, I need to just let it go…there is only so much that can be done on his end.  Let it go.

Prompts for WEEK 23 (June 11) are: The best compliment I ever received …
Wearing red lipstick makes me feel …
The best investment I’ve made …
My best childhood memory …

    I want to know more about the top photo and the event that scared your “crapless” but you participated anyway. A fine group of women doing something good it looks like, tell me more!!!!!

    • I looked cause I had sworn that I had wrote a post about it before, but I didn’t find it, so maybe I haven’t.
      Above is what is called Chicks Weekend that was my first one ever and I only knew the one person and that had only been here and there over the years – not closely really. She invited me to go and I hemmed and hawed over and finally I just said Okay I am doing it. It was a HUGE thing for me. All these people I didn’t know…what would I say? How would they react to me? It was hard, so hard, but I did it – and by late Saturday I was feeling somewhat comfortable, just in time to leave Sunday lol

    I’m such a worrier so much I obsess about it. I’ve had to let some of it go. Sometimes I’m good at it but other times I’m not so good at letting it go.

    Thanks for visiting my blog! I’m glad to see a fellow photographer. I was just looking at some of your posts in your blog and you have some great pics.
    If you look at more of the posts on my blog, I’ve been sharing my pics from when we went to Disney 2 months ago. I’m slowly getting them on the blog.

    Have a great week!

    • Thanks so much for stopping by Traci 🙂
      I love taking photos! I need to learn my manual settings more, but I still think I did fairly decent.
      I’m horrible at letting go, but I really need to.

  • Ooo! I’m a worrier too! It’s a constant work in progress, but I’ve gotten a little better about it.

    • Its so hard to stop when its your constant and your mind likes to override what you know you should NOT be doing.
