You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.....The danger lies in refusing to face the fear, in not daring to come to grips with it, you must make yourself succeed every time. You must do the thing you think you cannot do.

I faced my fears..Well I didn't really have one. I decided to literally take the jump! Yep, I went skydiving. I have always wanted to do this.
I have seen many friends in the past few years take up skydiving and move on to base jumping.

I have watched countless hours of videos of friends doing cool things jumping out of airplanes, mountain peaks and buildings. I have sat back and have been extremely fascinated by it all.
You gotta start somewhere right. So I did my first jump.
And yes I loved it. I wanted to go again after, I would of if I had the money.

I plan on going again next month and doing it again. It was like the funnest ride in the whole wide world.
I felt so free and so alive. It was amazing viewing the world from so up high. I loved every minute of it and my instructor Kirby was awesome.

The Parachute center in Lodi gets 5 stars from me they were all very professional and nice.
It's only 100 bucks to jump, which is very cheap.

Ok now it's time to tapper for San Diego 100 which is this weekend. Everyone please send me those positive vibes like you do.
Enjoy your week. Oh and do something crazy once in awhile it really makes you feel alive ;-)

Way to embrace life and experience what it has to offer! I believe we only get one life to live, so make the most of it and don't pass up any opportunities to try something new. Keep up the inspiring posts. The karma it generates will come reflecting back. Good luck @ San Diego!!! Yeeeee-hawwwwwwwww!!!
