This is your life…

Oh my. Those of you who know me well might be surprised by this post.

I did something yesterday that I promise you I had not envisioned I would EVER EVER try doing again.

I went on a high ropes challenge course at our staff retreat. I did not have to do it. But I decided to give it my best shot. A leap of faith (well sort of – attached by safety gear… but you know what I mean…)

Here we are, pre-ropes course. Note the brave FAKE smile…

I am going to do WHAT? Go HOW high?

Mental comments unprintable…

Being bolstered by one of my mentors.
Moving from platform to platform… AROUND a tree. A big tree. A very tall tree. And then onto one of the scarier parts, a sort of V-shaped bridge.
A visual definition of the phrase: unmitigated terror

And then… the only way down.

I have bruises and a few scrapes. I also have muscles that are convinced that I was beyond crazy. But as crazy as this sounds, if I were asked to do it again to bolster a team member who said, “I can’t!” then I would try.

I think…


P.S. Appropriate song playing!!!

This is your life, are you who you want to be?
This is your life, is it everything you dreamed that it would be

When the world was younger and you had everything to lose?

Don’t close your eyes…

This is your life are you who you want to be?
