Now, I’m gonna keep it all the way 100. I’ve been a fat kid since birth. Popping out of my Mother at a whopping 9+ pounds, and my weight has been a huge issue for other people all my life. I never saw it as a challenge but somehow it managed to unknowingly hold me back. I was an innocent bystander in my own skin, yet it never bothered me as much as it bothered everyone else.
Well, those days are over and I will never relive them!! I will no longer be told what I can and cannot do. I will forever dance to the beat of my own drum and do things my way. As the saying goes, “where there is a will, there is a way”, and I will always find my way.
So here’s to making the things on my Bucket List a reality….
I’ve always wanted to fly, and if I could have one wish it would be for the gift of flight. However, since I haven’t been able to find a Magical Genie to make that happen, I’ve opted for the next best thing! While I am too chicken to jump out of a plane… I am confident enough to do Indoor Skydiving in a controlled environment.
I took to the skies… or shall I say the wind tunnel for my very own personal flight experience, and it was everything that I imagined and more. That’s right… I went flying. My big ass suited up, and went up-up and away atiFLYin Tampa, Florida (with the help of a Certified Instructor). I felt the power of the wind beneath me and the force was with me. So much so that I didn’t even realize that the cold air on my face was mixed with my drool, LOL. Note to Self: Keep your mouth closed and just breathe, LOL. All I could think about was that I’m flying; that I wanted these 60 seconds to last for several minutes; and that this was really happening – I’m doing it!!! Talk about an adrenaline rush, I was so hyped and excited that I think I’ve found my new go-to extra circular activity.
