Now that we are three days into the new year, are there any changes you want to make? Do you have any struggles or fears that you want to overcome this year? This is something different than creating goals or new habits because I am talking about overcoming things in life. We are all human and we all have fears and things we want to avoid because certain things make us incredibly uncomfortable. I have heard people say the best way to overcome fears is to embrace them and continue doing the things that are feared until the fears do not exist.
I have had an intense fear of the dentist since I was younger. I try my best to avoid the dentist, even for cleanings because they all make me too nervous. Unfortunately, I have had a bad toothache for several days and now I need to swallow my fears and go to the dentist. What a way to begin the new year having to go to the dentist where I know they are going to pull my tooth☹. I can deal with most pain, but I am not able to deal with any pain in my head and the tooth pain is also creating a nasty headache.
Is there anything that you have an intense fear of, and do you have any ways to overcome the fears? Life is so short, and it is probably not good to live with any fears. I do think it is normal to have a fear of things like roller coasters or heights because I think there are a lot of people that feel that way. This may sound crazy, but I do have a fear of roller coasters, but I am fearless when it comes to heights😊!
Thank you for visiting my site today. I know I mentioned on Friday that my husband and I got the 2nd COVID booster, and I was going to do a post about it. Unfortunately, the booster had me out of sorts for a few days. It was the same thing that happened after I got the 1st COVID booster, and I just felt achy and tired for several days. What a way to bring in the New Year, not feeling well because of the COVID booster and awful tooth pain. Maybe I got all the negative out of the way in the first few days of 2023 and the rest of the year will be great😊! I look forward to reading your comments and I will respond as soon as I can. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

I have a fear of driving on freeways, especially with all the semi trucks. So while my husband drives I play card games on my phone to distract me.
