My Fifth Fear

Blogger's note: Today's blog is posted at both Innovating Common Knowledge and Finding Raymond Mar blogs.

I blogged my four fears Fear on Oct 2013. Here is my fifth fear.

Changing for the worse is my fifth fear. My fifth fear was discovered recently at work and at home. One of my managers changed recently. I describe him as a bad attitude manager. He was a friendly and helpful person when I started working at the company. I was comfortable having conversations with him. Unfortunately, he changed for the worse. He has an attitude problem towards me and some of my co-workers. He's annoying. His tone is best described as anger. He doesn't trust me anymore and vice versa. He's too stressed out such that he takes it out on others. I can't have sports, wine, and current event conversations with him. I avoid him at all costs.

My parents have changed mostly due to age. They're entering their senior citizen years. There are signs of laziness. They choose to live their lives too easy. They believe if they avoid anything bad, then nothing bad happens to them. I don't want to be them in my senior citizen years. I want to remain active which includes a social life with friends, physical activity hiking and going to the gym, reading books, playing board games, and continuing experiencing new experiences and seeking new adventures. My parents can live better lives putting in effort and sincerity. They wait for opportunities instead of seeking opportunities.

I don't want to be a bad person tomorrow. I don't want to be an inactive person tomorrow. I want to be a better person tomorrow--stronger, wiser, kinder, and smarter. I want to be a good person for the rest of my life.
