I did it. I bailed out of a plane! I wanna share some thoughts about the entire experience because I honestly never thought I would sky dive. I was terrified of the idea for such a long time. I have always wanted to skydive but anytime I would actually work myself up to go I would chicken out and never actually go. My husband Dallin surprised me on my birthday and told me he had already booked it for us and that we were going skydiving! My heart sank and I was so nervous automatically. As we were driving to the place to go skydiving I was starting to get really nervous. When we got there I actually started to feel a lot more comfortable. All of the instructors had been skydiving over 1,000 times and talked about it so casually…Like it was just no big deal! So that actually calmed my nerves a lot.
We entered the plane and got all strapped up to our instructors and once I saw how high up we were my heart started pounding a little bit. But the entire time I kept telling myself “You can do this. Theres no turning back now” Finally, They opened up the door and Dallin was up first. He wasn’t nervous at all so he jumped out so quick! Then it was my turn. My heart was pounding!!! I thought I was going to pee my pants but within the blink of an eye we had jumped out of the plane! I was FREE FALLING IN THE SKY!!!! It was the most incredible feeling. I had no fear. I was just living in the moment and enjoying every second. We made a safe landing and Dallin was at the bottom waiting for me and smiling ear to ear. It was the best feeling I have ever had! I felt so free and I just felt like I could do anything!
Moral of the story, Push yourself to do hard things. Step out of your comfort zone and the reward is great!
