I’m sorry I have been a little seldom the past few weeks. A lot has been going on – from crazy new happenings at work, to getting ready to head back to school in September. It’s all exciting stuff, I promise!
I wanted to share a really cool thing my boyfriend and I did four days ago – we went on an aerial obstacle course in Northern Washington. For you fellow Washingtonians, it’s through the company Adventura, in Woodinville, WA (near the wineries/breweries). They had an amazing “2 for 1” deal this past March through LivingSocial, and I since I wanted to do something fun and exciting for my beau’s birthday, this seemed like a really fun choice.
And just to clear the air … I don’t fare well with heights, but I had a made a deal with myself that 2012 was going to be the year of big changes (e.g., going back to school, lifestyle changes, etc.), even if it meant facing my fear of heights. It should also be known that my fear of heights only becomes an issue depending on how much I feel like I’m in danger – otherwise 95% of the time I can just push my fear to the side and get on with it.
In the case of this course, I was a little nervous and had to talk myself through it. Thankfully, we had awesome instructors who helped me build trust with the security devices and gravity. After about 5 minutes of being nervous, I crossed a log obstacle and proceeded to do more, slowly building up my courage with each challenge.
And then, I came to this point …
Needless to say, my fear was gone (and I must have thought I was a ninja)!
Do I regret doing it? Absolutely not! Would I do it again? Of course!
Which means, if you feel like you can’t do something, or you’re scared – just think about how you feel afterwards. You’ll be glad you did it :)
