Fun not so fearless female
As you guys probably know. My co-host Monty and I have been nominated as a Fun Fearless Female in the Cosmo awards.
Totally pumped. I've never won anything before. I think I'm fun, playful and goofy. Fearless is something I don't resonate with so much. Emotionally I am. But when it comes to the dark, ghosts, pain, snakes etc I will run a mile and we all know how much I hate running.
It made me think. Do I live my life too comfortably? Maybe I should put myself out there a little more. There are so many things I don't do because of fear.
Example: I will never go back to Bali because we all got so sick last time we were there and my biggest fear is gastro symptoms. What other city has a stomach virus named after them. Bali Belly! Never again. Never.
Then there was the time I got attacked by leeches on a rainforest walk. Leeches sucking my blood from every angle. In my shoes, in between my toes.. I was so traumatised I haven't done a rainforest walk since. That was 23 years ago!
I was scared of ghosts for a while, so bad that when Benj had to play interstate I had to have a babysitter (friends) stay with me the whole time. It was so bad that when the friends weren't available I flew his mum over from NZ to keep me safe.
I'm a big chicken. Obviously.
Emotionally though I have been through hell and back so that stuff to me is a breeze. Bring a snake around me carrying leeches with Bali belly and I will lose my shit!
Hopefully my FUNNESS is fun enough to get me through without being that fearless!
