Scared of the sea

There is just something so scary about being surrounded by a large expanse of water. I don't know how sailors sail at sea for such a long time without being tied to a mast all day long. At least, I would do that. I went on a boating trip with a couple of cousins yesterday, and I was really tempted to do just that. It was my, let's see...third time out in the open sea. It was a lot of fun, but I could not help feeling slightly haunted and terrified of all the dark water that surrounded us. I realized I was not made to travel on the sea. People take world tours on ships, I don't know how they do it. I consider a boat or ship a cage or floating prison on the sea. But, then again, I am kind of weird.

Everybody has his own fears and unfortunatly most of time these f
ears are exactly wht are blocking us from enjoying,living fully our life.
Recently ive been in open waters,it really gave me a sense of freedom,peace,humbleness,gratitude toward wht God created.
Even something like land tht we dont consider at all during our daily life is simply a blessing from the Almighty.
