I did something crazy

Yes.  That is me.

Let's start this off by saying:  I am terrified out of my mind of heights.

I don't know what I was thinking either.

One of my girlfriends texted me last weekend saying she and her dad were going to go rapelling and did I want to come along?  I said I wasn't quite sure what that meant but it sounded fun so alright!

That, my friends, is how it all came to go down on Tuesday morning.

You can't tell, but in the picture below, I am wondering what the hell I got myself into.  I was hooked up, good to go, and totally fine, but once I started walking backward toward that edge... I about lost it.  Almost.  Then I made the mistake of looking back over my shoulder.  Ohhhh that was fun.  I was thisclose to saying I couldn't do it and book it back to solid ground.  But I made myself do it, and for what?  A good story to tell you all!  I kid you not.  The single reason I did this was because of the story I'd be able to tell afterward.  I mean, you can see the appeal.  Heights hater goes climbing down a six-story-tall rock!  A tall tale indeed.  (HA, HA.  No pun intended!)

I think my priorities are a little out of whack.  Especially when I tell you this:  I went down that 60 foot rock not once, not twice, but four times.  For this reason: I did it enough times to last me the rest of my life.  Oh, I crack myself up.  No, really, I'm actually chuckling as I write this.

Exposure therapy at its best, people. Not gonna lie, I kinda want to do it again, just to get over my fear..   Say.  Conquer any of your own fears lately??   xx 

{edit: there's only one day left on Bonnie's giveaway so get to it!  One of my coffee cozies is up for grabs!}

  1. I'm proud of you. Also, you're right - there's something to be said about doing something purposely so you can tell the story later. Whatever it takes, right?

  2. Wow this looks like so much fun! I'm about to start working for a non-profit organization and one of their fundraisers every year is to have ppl raise money to rappel down the side of one of the buildings downtown.. hoping I get to do it this year!
