Back in April of 2015, a lady by the name of Michelle Poler challenged herself to "100 Days Without Fear". This was all a part of a school assignment, but soon became something bigger. One of her first challenges, her getting a bikini wax, had only about 15 views, but soon by the end she was giving a TedTalk that a ton of people would see. She did this to better her life, and it did.

I am by no means fearless. I get scared of my own shadows, and am often scared to do or say things because of what people will think, but somehow I am always up for a dare. I strongly believe that this challenge is a good way to improve your mindset and your overall self as a person. Polers challenge, was a great example that no matter how confident or courageous you seem, everyone has fears. I am 17, still afraid of spiders, the dark, being alone, and a closed bathroom curtain, for you never know what could be behind it.

I am accepting this challenge, and I hope you all do too. I believe that this can help better my mind and confidence. I can no longer be afraid of everything, and this should help me with that concept. I will document my progress all in a journal. In this journal I will include, my progress along with feeling scales, that will document how I felt before, during, and after accomplishing a fear. There will also be a section in which I explain why I'm afraid of the task and the effects of doing it. I am writing this article on day 1, and on day 100 I will write another one, that includes all of my progress summed up.

On day 1, I wrote in my journal that I felt anxious and was a 4 out of 10, with 10 being very happy. On day one, I felt very scared and anxious. I am afraid that I may not complete this challenge, and that I may limit myself because my fear will take over.

I first heard about this challenge about two weeks ago, in which I was scrolling through quotes to update my twitter bio. I had found a fear quote by Eleanor Roosevelt and this had me curious. I then thought about myself, and realized how much I limit myself because of fear. So I went and researched fears, and soon came across Michelle Poler.

Now I know this might not be the best thing to happen to me, but it might reveal a few things. I hope you all accept this challenge with me, and learn to stand up to your fears. After all, we are all in this together.
