Year of No Fear Me!

Today marks one month until my birthday! There were many fears conquered, attempted, and put on hold.


Conquered!-Christmas ornament exchange party I had avoided for years! Can't wait to go again this year!


Attempted?-Making phone calls to people I don't know. I have done well with some people but I still have a phone number of a new friend that I want to call but just can't get the nerve to.


Put on Hold*-Shooting a gun. My doctor recommended I wait until I'm not pregnant. She was confused by why I was wanting to shoot a gun anyway.


So I post the question, what should I do in the next month? After my birthday hits I won't be stopping my year of no fear, I do have to give birth shortly after so I'll need no fear more than ever! But in the next month what are some suggestions of fears I should conquer? I'll pick one suggestion and let you know how it turns out!

Hmmmm. We don't get a list? I am going to challenge you to be the FIRST. What do I mean by being the first? It means when you run into someone at the store you recognize, be the first to stop and say a quick hello. It means when someone gives a talk in church or sings a song take the time to stop and tell them how nice they did. It means when you are at the school open houses this month don't wait for other parents to ask the questions you are wondering..you ask...and an email later does not count! It means if you notice something special about someone you know you tell them ie: haircut, cute skirt, sassy shoes etc. Am I clear enough? Maybe these things aren't fearful for you but it was the first thing I thought of. I am going to accept my own challenge. Here goes nothin...

What about mending a past relationship. Is there someone out there whom you no longer speak with, for whatever reason, that you have been thinking about lately? Now, I know you're married so I'm not talking about a past boyfriend but a good friend who you maybe think about from time to time that you have had a falling out with. Maybe this is the month that you should call and renew that friendship.

Hey, I've got one. I overheard you at church saying that you didn't want a list going around for either your shower or dinners,not sure which one. I wasn't really listening in, really, I just sort of caught some of the conversation. But I remember you saying that you don't want people to feel obligated. How about you change your mind on that and let them pass around a sign up list. I have learned this past couple of weeks that taking help is awesome, for everyone. I always so "no thanks" when they ask if I need help out with my groceries but lately I have been saying "yes, please" and it really is a help. Also, I told Darren that I would love help with Ryland while Chuck was at scout camp. I usually say no because I have that feeling of I'm the mom, I should be able to do this on my own. but I am learning that accepting help isn't saying you're weak, it's just saying that yeah, I'm not superman, I do need help every once in a while. Think about it. Plus, I bet there are lots of people who would love to make you meals or bring your son a gift but wouldn't have the chance unless a list was circulated at church.

Christy is right, you need to let people help you. I always had a hard time with that too, but someone told me that if you don't let people help you then your not letting them serve you and they will miss out on blessings. I'm so glad you will be going to the ornament exchange party this year. That party is always so much fun!!
