I had a friend who was scared of heights. To prove he was a real man he jumped from a plane.
I had a friend who was scared to be alone, so she jumped from one man’s bed to another.
I myself was scared of the unknown, and walked along my spiritual path jumping in fright at every new encounter.
Just the other day I got in a Fight!
I was out near my Worm Farm, transplanting a few cherry tomato seedlings when it all began.
I had a bag of potting mix between my knees, both hands full of dirt and BAMMO!
One of the neighbor’s bees lined me up and took me down with one hit (but not before I squealed hysterically, ran in circles and threw dirt everywhere).
I was stung on the top of my cheek, just below my right eye. I was home alone and a little worried about the effects, as I had been stung on my foot a few years previous and my whole leg swelled. Luckily, this time, Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation saved a disaster. My face did swell a little – but only enough to cut some vision and make me look a little chubby. But the worst thing of all – It hurt when I smiled.
