Trying New Things

As easily as I get scared, I am always up to try new and adventurous things.  Let me backtrack here, I am terrified of heights…like terrified. I don’t know exactly what happens to my body once I am up high, but my brain sends out this warning to the rest of my body and it locks up and I’m frozen.  Moving forward…

Dominican Republic

On my last trip to the Dominican Republic, I went zip-lining through the rain forest. I was thinking to myself “YES, I’m adventurous and a total badass. I got this.” But once I was in my harness and leaning over the edge in a tower swaying above some of the tallest trees in the rain forest, I started to second guess my decision. At that point, I’m thinking, “well this is dumb.”  I started to back away from the edge and was not going to do it.

“My fear of missing a once in a life time opportunity outweighed my fear of heights.”

Decision Time

Then I had some running commentary in my head, “Really?!?! Are you going to be a chicken and back out?! Seriously?!”  I stopped thinking completely and just did it.  I flew through that bad boy! Zooming through trees, feet touching water and birds just flying all around me! Best decision I have ever made.  My fear of missing a once in a life time opportunity outweighed my fear of heights.

Reasoning

Now, when I’m faced with a decision that terrifies me, I look back on this time. I just said to myself “screw it.” And do it.  I was so worried that I was going to look back and say that I wish I would have at least tried it. Since then, I have tried everything, well almost everything, that I come across.  Whether it’s food, excursions, or events.  I have said, “YES!” And I am happier then I have ever been and I also have amazing stories to tell! Next time you are in a situation where you are facing one of your fears, just say “F -IT!” You’ll regret that you didn’t!

I will also try to find my zip-lining pics for you guys! Stay tuned!
