My biggest fear

Today's question, courtesy of Jenni, is about the thing I'm most afraid of.
That's a loaded question, isn't it?
I have a lot of little fears, but I'd say the biggest is losing the people I love.
I would be devastated if I lost Justin or any of my friends and family.
I hear all the time about people losing their loved ones to cancer and other diseases. I can't imagine how much that must hurt.
Then there is losing someone to a natural disaster, like a tornado or hurricane. Or to a random shooting or bombing, like what just recently happened in Boston. It scares the daylights out of me that these events occur, and often there is little to no warning.
But there is an upside to all of this negativity. It makes me want to enjoy every day more and surround myself with everyone I love. I'm more grateful when I see things in this context. It doesn't prevent bad things from happening, of course. But I can't live my life overcome with fear, or I'll never be happy. And I'd much rather be happy!


  1. Losing people is definitely hard. I've been through that a few times. But you're right, enjoy ever moment while it's happening and don't take them for granted.

  2. Love this :) Losing someone is hard, so it does make you want to appreciate the ones around you even more!
