Fear of Failure. and the Fourth Of July.

Atychiphobia is defined as the irrational fair of failure.

To some extent I believe everyone suffers from this phobia. There are always moments of self doubt. everyone I know has had them.

I have vivid memories of my mother saying "Nothing beats a trial but a failure."  Don't let those moments of self doubt turn you into a person who never attempts anything in life. Don't let your fear paralyze you. And if for the moment you get stuck, find someone anyone that you trust and voice your fears. If you don't acknowledge them you don't know how to fight them.

Just a thought.  OK. On to where I've been.


Hope everyone is having a great summer. The kids and I are taking it  easy. Though the little one decided jump into the pool this weekend and ended up cutting her chin on the swim out. I mean what is a major holiday without a trip to the emergency from.

Except I didn't have to go to the emergency room. Thank God for After Hours Pediactrics and Dr Ballelos, who patched her up.  Can't tell you how grateful I am to them. Especially since this isn't the first time we've been there. That's when she'd jumped off couch and broke her Elbow. They were excellent then too.
Here she is wearing my shades while we wait for her chin to numb.

Anyway hope you guys have a great summer!

Aw - poor kid.
I definitely have fear issues, which for me, stem from control issues. Thanks goodness I have a fearless hubby and great friends!
