My body tensed up and I could feel myself struggling to breathe. This happened only at the thought of it. It was the day before I was about to tick an item off my bucket list. This item involved two of my biggest fears; confined spaces and heights!
I have always been a consequence person. I always over think things. What will happen if I do this? Sometimes it is suffocating to be like this. Fear holds everyone back at some stage in their life. Fear is paralysing. But over-coming a fear well that is one of the most rewarding feelings I have ever experienced.
Yesterday, Shaun and I flew to Mt Isa in the owner’s small plane. It was spectacular! All the worrying I did in the week before was wasted. The moment we were dropped at the air-strip all the angst washed away. The views were breathtaking. Seeing the landscape we live in everyday from a completely different perspective was amazing.
I had a slight feeling of panic on the return trip after swapping spots with Shaun . I went from sitting up the front to sitting in the back. It was a mind over matter situation and I freaked out . Other than that though it was nothing short of magnificent.
Would I do it again?
Definitely! (Poor Mum)
