The Many Works of Pat Hatt
July 6, 2015
Back we are once more with another question. This time it’s fear. And guess what? I have no fear, at least nothing that holds me back. I’ll get to that. Here is the question:
What are three things you’d do tomorrow if fear wasn’t stopping you?
I do what I want. Fear doesn’t even come into play. Now if I was going down a dark alley in a bad neighborhood, not that I’d be going down a dark alley in a bad neighborhood, I’d fear getting shot. Common fears like that keep you alive. They keep you out of the dark alley and keep you from getting shot. Those I have when called for, no doubt.
But as for fear of things that can impede daily life, nadda. There are things I won’t do because they are stupid, like play with land mines or eating gluten. If it came between the two I’d rather play with land mines. A much better outcome for me.
Why no fear? It’s quite simple, once you’ve been to hell, you don’t fear anything upon coming back. It’s that easy. Fear, in life instances, not the dark alley, seems totally and utterly a completely stupid concept after that. And so I do what I want when I want, as long as I have the means to do it and I am able to do it.
Fear only holds you back if you let it. If common sense was more common fear would be less common. But hey, at least it isn’t as bad as luck. Fear at least has merit, luck is just some made up term by humans to explain things in their life. I suppose right there is a form of fear, fear to face the truth so people blame a made up concept like luck.
Do you fear anything at your sea? Nope, there is no fear in me. But I would not recommend anyone going to hell to get rid of their fear, it’s not a fun trip.
Enjoy life, forget the strife.
