  • I think everyone has done it once or more. It is human nature to have fear and doubt.

  • I am not afraid of failing, I just get up and try again.

  • Oh my goodness, YES! And I kick myself about it to this day . . . . I am a singer/songwriter by hobby. When I was younger, a college music professor wanted to work with me and record. I was too scared . . . never called him back. Years later, I had the guts to get together some musicians and record, but, by then, many years had gone by. . . and I was well on the track to another profession. The time to try would have been when I was a young adult. I let that slide . . . and I regret it.
    There are so many things . . . .
    That being said, if this road is what led me to my wonderful husband and children, then I wouldn't change a thing.

  • ALWAYS. I'm not spontaneous and I don't take risks - I'm terrified of getting hurt, of failing... everything. I was even going to apply to go back to school last year - I sent out for my papers and everything, and then... I chickened out. I was only applying at one of the local colleges, which everyone gets into, and I still got scared.
