Song of the day = shadow on the sun -audioslave. Sometimes we as people need to take a step back and take a peak from a 3rd point of view to make sure the things we are doing is truly what we want.. Ive been tested to that fact and i can say though my past is done and over. There has been times where i was a little suprised.. Sometimes it could be a sentence said by the unlikely you have heard before or a song. I am grateful to be a father. I can stand strong for the ones i love and not worry about things that are trivial.. Im not perect and no where close..But im not afraid to put my heart on my sleeve and jump off that ledge to take a chance again.. I feel like the sun's warmth has skipped my soul due to overbearing weight and pressure..Like a shadow of doubt within myself that couldnt be shaken until i closed chapters in my life. I spoke to a true friend and witnessed that 1st hand. I saw the look on my friends face and noticed a look ive had before. The one of being lost and unsure. Its sad to see a good spirited person be weighed down by fear.Fear of themselves,fear to let go of their past because it's what they know regardless of if its good for them or not. People should know that just because something fails or you lose something or someone...doesnt give you the right to sit and watch life go bye. GET UP. we all have wings and though we may be more cautious you should take that risk and fly again.. age,situation,bad experiences, only makes you WISER for the future.. SO heres to risk. To laugh is to risk appearing the fool. To weep is to risk appearing sentimental. To reach for another is to risk involvement. To expose your ideas, your dreams, before a crowd is to risk their loss. To love is to risk not being loved in return. To live is to risk dying. To believe is to risk despair. To try is to risk failure. But risks must be taken, because the greatest hazard in life is to RISK NOTHING!!. The people who risk nothing, do nothing,have nothing, are nothing. They may avoid suffering and sorrow, but they cannot learn, feel, change,grow, love, live. Chained by their FEARS they are slaves; they have forfeited their freedom. Only a person who risks is free. IM GOING TO ASK A QUESTION AND SEE WHAT REPLIES I GET. WHAT'S YOU BIGGEST FEAR IN RELATIONSHIPS AS SINGLE PARENTS?

WHAT'S YOU BIGGEST FEAR IN RELATIONSHIPS AS SINGLE PARENTS? My biggest fear is a dilema: is this person who is interested in me going to mess things up among my kids and me or will my extreme caution tire this lovely one as I try to determine what is good. Will I throw away a Godsend trying to protect the remnant of our home?

My biggest fear is also my greatest source of hope and excitement: not knowing what the future holds for me.

WOW !!Lonesomedaddy08.. I have read your blogs and enjoyed your depth, humour and sense of "keeping it real". "The biggest fear in a relationship as a single parent" for me would be not to lose sight of "ME".. of who I am.. as a parent we tend to put others first especially if we want a partner, to have love in our life again (other than our children).. But hey I am blessed to have learnt so much so far and embrace all fears as another step to learning. To overcome those fears can only lead to "enlightenment" and another exciting journey. Your words have been inspirational for me truly.. many years ago I rode all over the country (Australia) on a GPZ900R.. my new goal - another bike.. for sure.. My story to share - for my 40th I faced my total fear of heights and rode the "Fly Coaster Ride" 12 stories high and dropped.. !! WOW what a buzzzz !!! They say life begins at 40.. so bring it on :o)

Mine is almost 16 years and failer is a big one but the biggest fear of mine...will she still love me when it's over? meaning, when she's grown-up will she see what it was I was trying to teach her? Hopfully she will understand why I've had to say "no" a lot.
