10 things I don’t have the guts to do!

5 No tags Permalink 0

In keeping with the recent posts of 10 things that make me happy (you can read mine HERE), I thought I would do a different kind of 10 things!

10 things that I don’t have the guts to do! They don’t necessarily have to be things that you wished you had the guts to do, just couldn’t or wouldn’t do!

So here goes….

1. Skydiving
This is actually one that I WOULD like to do, I just really don’t know if I could actually go through with it!

2. Busking
Yes this one might seem strange, but I was walking down the street the other day and there was this dude just sitting on the footpath strumming his guitar and singing away, and the first thing I thought was, god that would take some guts!

3. Climb the Harbour Bridge
This one is very similar to Skydiving I know. Yes I would like to do it, but once again not sure if it came to do it I would have the guts to do it!

4. Give up everything to help others
We all want to give back, and help those less fortunate than us. But could you give up everything to make this happen? Bless you Cate Bolt!

5. Eat weird things!
I know that probably sounds, well, weird, but as much as I love food I’m pretty well stuck in my comfort zone and tend not to try a lot of new things. Well actually I shouldn’t say ‘new’ things, more weird things! Just in case my guts, literally can’t handle it!

6. Move to another country by myself
Not long before I started going out with Hubby I joined a job agency in Dubai and was seriously contemplating moving there. Eventually the new relationship distracted me and I was happy to stay put. Then Hubby and his company were made an offer to do some work in Dubai. Off he went for a couple of weeks. There was a possibility that we could have ended up moving there for 2 or so years, but it never came off. Which I’m happy to say now I’m kinda glad we didn’t go. But had I not have met Hubby, would I have moved by myself? Well I guess that’s something we’ll never know, and if it had have came down it could I have gone myself? I’m not actually sure that I could have.

7. Reverse park my Hubby’s Hilux
This monstrosity of a 4WD is hard enough to drive sometimes let alone park! Thankfully I usually only have to drive it home from dinner, or friends places when Hubby has had a little too much lolly water. On the odd chance I have had to drive it somewhere by myself I have driven around looking for ‘easy’ parks because hell would freeze over before I would even think about trying to reverse park the sucker!

8. Swim in the ocean
I’m not a particularly good swimmer, and actually don’t really like water in general. Trust me then to marry a sailor! Anyway, when, or more like if we ever go to the beach you won’t get me in there past my knees. Give me a pool or relatively clear lake any day. But the ocean? Nope, scares the bejesus outta me!

9. Give blood
This is a really bad one I know, because giving blood helps so many people. But I just cannot bring myself to go and do it. I nearly cried when I had to get the cervical cancer vaccine. And not just one of the times, but all three! I’ve had a pathology referral since October to go get a blood test to check my rubella immunity is up to date. Twice Hubby and I have gone to get it done and twice the place has been shut. Oh well, maybe I’ll get there eventually. The further needles are away from me the better.

10. Shave my head
Back in high school a group of girls in my year shaved their heads for Cancer. To this day I still admire what they did, and everyone else who has ever done it. I honestly and seriously would never have the guts to do it, even though I know it’s for a wonderful cause. Selfish ha. Maybe one day when I stop caring about what other people think. Oooh that could be a number 11, I don’t have the guts to stop caring about that other people think. OK, sorry that’s enough of a list for today!

So there you have it! Aren’t I just an all round scaredy cat! So I’d like to ask the following bloggers, what don’t you have the guts to do…..

    Thanks for the tag, Ami! I will get thinking and am sure to come up with 10 things… actually, it will probably be hard to narrow it down! I’m a big scaredy-cat too.

    I can relate to a lot of your 10 things. Especially giving blood – although I’ve done it a couple of times, I can’t do it again. My veins are very difficult to find, so they tend to stick the needle in and then search. After doing that a couple of times, I refuse to go back… I’m sure you can understand why!

    Thanks for the tag, Ami! I’m sure I will *easily* come up with 10 things…no problemo. Scardey-cat like Megan above! Pretty much all of yours above could be on mine. ;)

    Thanks for the tag, Ami! I’m exactly the same as Megan and Jodie, and am often told by my boyfriend to “stop being such a pussy”.

    I will try to post this after I get back from my little holiday! xx

    Thanks for the tag, Ami, and great idea!! I’ve read three list so far and have just done mine. Brings out another side of us. I’m so with you on No.10. And I used to be the same with No.9 but now I HAVE to have monthly blood tests…I’m over it now, but I still can’t look! :)

    Great list – I was lazy and added mine to ‘doireallywannablog’s comments!
    I don’t reckon I’d ever shave my head without needing to either.
