Time to Conquer Your Fear


When her alarm sounded at 6 a.m., the girl hopped out of bed, got dressed, packed a suitcase, and rushed to the airport without knowing her destination. In Mary Schmich’s column “Wear Sunscreen,” she gives the following advice: “Do one thing every day that scares you.”

I have a million fears that I need to start facing rather than avoiding. How am I supposed to “live life to the fullest” if I’m afraid of doing anything out of the ordinary? It’s time I step out of my comfort zone. If truth be told, being full of fear isn’t always a bad thing. Being scared keeps people on their toes. Once you have overcome a fear, you might just realize how silly that fear was. We need to stop letting fear control us and start being loud, spontaneous, and unafraid!
