Beyond Avoidance

Today's Reverb is Avoidance: What should you have done this year but didn’t because you were too scared, worried, unsure, busy or otherwise deterred from doing? (Bonus: Will you do it?)

I should have gotten on a plane!!!!!! I was both scared to fly and worried about money and the cost of the vacation to go. I'm trying to overcome this fear so that in 2011 I can go on multiple vacations...we'll see how it goes!

I was afraid to fly also and didn't do it until I was 50 years old. The first time I went with DH and the second I went alone. Then I flew at least 4 times a year.I don't know why I was ever afraind. I LOVED IT! I wish I hadn't wasted those 50 years afraid to go anywhere. Just go for it! You are safer flying than driving. But I hate the crap you have to go through at the airport.

Precious: What's weird is that I used to fly when I was younger all the time! Countless times with my parents, once with my older sister, and once all alone (I was 10 or 11). And I was never afraid (the very first time, yes, but after that, nope).
I don't know what it is, if it's the terrostic stuff, getting sick on the plane and not being able to get 'fresh' air to feel better since the plane can't just 'land' as I'm sick, the heights, claustrophobia or what. I do have xanax, but I don't wanna take them.
What's weird is that I'm a tough cookie, nobody messes me with and I have a very 'tough girl' persona. And I'm like 'I'm afraid to sit in a plane for a few hours?' What is my deal? LOL
