The Scariest Thing Around

Want to know the scariest thing around? I hope you’re prepared.

Creepy and Kooky
I’ve seen some pretty creepy stuff in my life. I’ve had a guy chase me with a meat cleaver when I was five, although, now that I think about it I’m pretty sure that was a dream. I’ve been in mortal danger both at the hands of others and at my own on several occasions.

I’ve seen my parents making out. Scary stuff.

But none of this is the scariest thing around.

Mysterious and Spooky
I’ve seen all kinds of slithering, skittering, creeping, and crawling creatures, beasts, and insects, but the scariest thing around has nothing to do with any of that.

The scariest thing around is a parked car. Or an unopened envelope. Or a closed book.

No, not those things in reality, but metaphorically. All of them have great potential for fun, adventure, and possibilities, and yet all of them are not meeting their potential at all.

One could be whisking you away for a weekend getaway to see the leaves change color. Another could be telling you of a bank error in your favor with a small windfall of cash to use for a fun evening out. Still another could transport you to another world and another time and let your imagination run wild.

And yet all of them sit still.

All Together Ooky
The scariest thing around is to miss out on all the possibilities that await. It’s to not only expect a half empty glass, but to not even see it at all when you’re thirsty. It’s to complain about what isn’t when there’s so much that is.

Everywhere you look there are possibilities. There is hope. There is potential. There is a brighter future just waiting to be explored and enjoyed.

The scariest thing around is not to notice it.
