Truly one of THEE best experiences of my 40 years of life. I shared it with my son & took him with a group of friends for his 20th birthday.
I can’t even watch the video of it without crying. The photo I have attached to this goal is perfect! I have never had such clarity & peace of mind in my entire life. For that reason alone I would pay nearly any price.
It was such an amazing & spiritual experience that I am actually at a loss for words to describe it. It felt like time was endless, life was limitless, peace surrounded me & was within me, & joy was all there was left to feel.
One of the people we jumped with was a 58 years old man & I was dumbstruck at his reaction – it was so powerful for me that I cannot imagine anyone having anything but an overpoweringly positive reaction/response. Although I understand that we all experience things differently.
I would suggest this to anyone – it is worth every expensive cent – I’d make a way (if I were you) to make it happen. I cannot imagine anyone walking away feeling anything but filled with renewed energy, zeal, & bright thoughts for the future.
(not to mention the adrenaline rush you get – for my son it was almost too much – he could hardly contain himself… for that alone it was worth it too!!!)
2008 – THIS IS THE YEAR!!!
15 August 2008 is my son’s 20th birthday. I turned 40 in January & made a firm commitment, that I am constantly following through on, that THIS IS THE YEAR… for making changes… this is the year to follow through… and every other great thing I have wanted for myself.
So, with a group of friends from “COUCHSURFING.COM”, I am taking my son to go skydiving for our first time! I am thrilled, scared (lol), & energized by the fact that I really am following through with so many of my dreams for my life this year.
Dreams can be big or small. This may be one of the rather smaller ones in life – but it’s the small stuff that cares us through & fuels us to newer & greater heights!
THIS IS THE YEAR!!!
... my son’s girlfriend wants to go for her 18th birthday – she wants me to go with! YIKES… where on earth will I come up with all that money? Oh, no! lol
I suppose I’ll need to look more into all of it – the rules, regulations, everything… Her birthday is 6 October – so that should be mighty cold for skydiving I’d think… is that safe? I don’t know… lots of questions… so little time…
... guess that’s why I used this photo – it reminds me of the feeling that the weightlessness in the freefall would give me! Alright, at the same time – it’ll make me wanna holler & pee my pants too… but I am told over & over again that there is that time after you jump that it feels almost as if you are floating weightlessly – I dream of that moment!
I keep coming back to this goal over & over again throughout my life. I had a friend several years back who was going to take me – he even offered to pay for me for my birthday one year. I don’t know how I let time get away from me & never went ahead & did it!
But, now it’s official – on a list and every friggin thing! I know folks in California & Australia who are avid skydivers – if I get the money together & the inclination to just make it a priority (Yeha, the money can be an important little detail too… lol) – I have plenty of opportunity to connect with folks to make it a fun “occasion”.
