I have been making sure that I tell everyone what I’m doing, not only because I’m super excited about it, but because I need to be held accountable. There’s also, albeit ever so slight, a chance that it’ll be the last things I do. I firmly believe that if it’s my time to go, then God is going to take me whenever, wherever and in whatever way he chooses. So, I choose to go skydiving! I choose it mainly because there are some fears that I just have to get past and what better way than to live one of the ultimate fears that most people have, falling.
For as long as there’s been recorded history, there has been a fixation to climb mountains or volcanoes to reach a closeness to the gods. Juxtapose that with sacrifices made to the gods by throwing people INTO volcanoes and off high points. Some felt that it was noble for them to be sacrificed…Seriously….No! Others were coerced, threatened or ultimately forced once the animals were no longer strong enough to please the gods. Such an interesting place we come from and thank goodness the civilized world no longer does that, but that doesn’t mean it’s no longer done!
Now, I’m doing it for purely selfish reasons: I’m an adrenaline junky and every time I think about what I’m going to be doing in just a few days, I can’t help but to smile, very big! So, come Monday, I want you to visit my http://www.facebook.com/goldwiserwoodlands page and stay tuned for my video. I’m sure it won’t be glamorous, but it’s going to amazing!
