Today, I am conquering a big fear with a seemingly miniscule act.
I am going to the dentist.
I won't say how long it has been since I last visited the dentist. But I will say that I have allowed my fear and inertia to keep me out of the dentist's chair for far too long.
My goal is to live a long and healthy life. To this end, I eat right and work out and try to make time for fun and family and religion and other stress relieving activities.
I know that to meet my goal of a long and healthy life, I need to take good care of myself and take preventive measures.
This includes regular dentist visits.
So with a heavy heart and a moderate amount of anxiety, I head off for my appointment. Wish me luck!
