A Fearless Life

Imagine living a life with no fears, no anxieties, no worries. Nothing. For someone who has been a worrier and well, still worries occasionally about a number of things, this would be unreal. And bliss.

Or so you would think.

Would a life without any fear actually be a life worth living?

Fear is not always a debilitating emotion. Sure, we do freeze when we are afraid of something. But fear can also spur us on to do great things. We are at our most courageous when we face our fears. So a life without any fears whatsoever would consequently mean a life without any courage. A life without any challenges.

Personally, a life without challenges and where everything is smooth sailing is not really an interesting life for me.

What makes life exciting is the ups and the downs. Without the downs, we don’t learn to appreciate the ups. Without the pain, we cannot appreciate or even recognise the joys. Without the discomfort that is fear, sadness and anxiety, we cannot experience the comfort of being content or ecstatic.

Living a fearless life would mean living a boring life.

I like my imperfect life — the downs, the ups, the sidesteps, the adventures — all of it.

It’s what makes my life, mine.

It’s what makes it a journey.

I don’t know the ending but at least the mystery remains…

Would you like to live a fearless life?

    There is a lot I fear in life, from snakes and spiders to living the rest of my life alone…some of this I guess I can control and some I can’t but all of them is what makes me me I suppose. Can’t imagine what it would be like to be fearless and to be honest, I think those people who say they are fearless are liars…there has to be something!
