"Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure."

I've been seeing a quote for some time: "Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure..." After great reflection, I've decided there are a few things I'm more afraid of than being powerful beyond measure. One of them is being eaten. By bears, rabbits, other human beings... anything really. In fact, the less intimidating the creature, the more horrific the death would certainly end up being. Being eaten by sharks would last minutes. Being eaten by ants? It would take weeks before they finished off just my calves. Terrifying. I am more afraid of being eaten by ants than being all powerful. Another fear is forgetting things, big things. What if one day I lost my cell phone, forgot all the passwords to my accounts, and forgot where I lived? Horrific. I'm so embarrassed to ask strangers for help I'd probably end up driving around aimlessly, wishing I'd bought a GPS and hoping to stumble into the right neighborhood, until I after a couple hundred of miles on surface streets I eventually ran out of gas, where I would then be forced to park and sleep in the back of my car until the proper authorities found me. It could take months. Yeah, maybe it is unlikely I forgot all that stuff on the same day, but it can't be any less likely than becoming powerful beyond measure. There are probably other things that I fear more too -- never being able to fall asleep again, getting hit by an airplane, becoming lactose intolerant, etc... I could go on, but I guess my point is when I really think about it, I'm not all that afraid of being powerful beyond measure. I guess I'm just weird.

  1. Even worse than being eaten, I don't want to end up being poop! I don't want to be shark poop or bear poop. That's why I want to be cremated. I'm so scared now I'm going to start lighting my feet on fire. One piece of me at a time. The pain will at least allow me to focus on remembering my passwords.

  3. Lol! I am terrified of being eaten as well. I have a full plan for when the zombie apocolypse gets here! Anyway, I am your newest follower and was hoping that you would stop by and follow me back.

    Thanks,
