OBSTACLES

Journal prompt for Jr Honors English today:

"What are some obstacles that prevent people from pursuing their dreams? What obstacles stand in your way?"
This is another good prompt.  Its pretty easy but something that you can also really think about.
In general, obstacles that prevent "us" from doing things are physical, mental and fear.  I think fear is probably one of the biggest obstacles people face in pursuing their dreams.  We are afraid we can't do something or may be hurt, either physically or emotionally.
I would definitely say FEAR is my biggest obstacle - of doing anything I might be dreaming of doing.  I really don't like doing new things and especially learning new technology, even though I'd like to be able to do more when it comes to current technology.  I'd love to learn PhotoShop, but its just too hard to learn something new.  And I can always ask Justin to do it for me.
PHYSICAL obstacles are also huge for me.  I'd like to run more 1/2 marathons, but physically I'm not just not up to it these days.  Plus, I'm lazy and am not pushing myself too hard right now.
One of my dreams is to go SKYDIVING - biggest obstacle there is that I'm  AFRAID of heights.  Those 2 things don't really go together, do they?
