Afraid to Do

(This is part of a 30-day writing challenge)

The other terror that scares us from self-trust is our consistency; a reverence for our past act or word, because the eyes of others have no other data for computing our orbit than our past acts, and we are loath to disappoint them. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Emerson says: “Always do what you are afraid to do.” What is ‘too scary’ to write about? Try doing it now.

It’s too scary to think or write about the possibilty of R and I not always being together, of losing it, of falling out of love.  Having a child has made it even more clear to me how much work it is to be married.  I don’t mean that in a bad way, as in, I hate this marriage, it’s so much work. I just mean, you have to make time for each other and you have to make time to really be there for each other.  A lot of times our interactions are so baby related, so it’s really important for us to step back and do things just for us.  This is hard without family nearby, but it’s important for us to go on dates and to just goof around together.  I hope we never ever lose it, because he’s  a pretty cool guy and a really great dad!
