What scares you?

I was reading Penelope’s site yesterday and came upon this entry called What Scares You? A few minutes later I found myself signing up for an advanced spanish conversation class that starts tomorrow. Eek!

I like the idea that we need to regularly practice doing things that are a little scary in order to prepare ourselves for the bigger dreams and risks we long to take. I know that auditioning for a famous gospel choir (I am even embarrassed to sing in front of Ben) was hands down the scariest thing I have ever done. I literally had a rash all over my face for weeks from the anxiety. Afterwards though, I felt like, “Well, I survived that. Now I know I can do pretty much anything.”

I started my business a few months later.

Maybe it’s going to a movie by yourself, taking a photo of someone you don’t know, or finally taking that dance class at the gym… What scares you? and where you can take one little practice step?
