This once in a lifetime experience is not easy to describe in words. If I had to describe it, as I have stated on social media last year after taking the jump, is it is an exhilarating, spiritually physical experience of devouring fear! Loved every second of it. Veteran tandem skydiver described me as his most vocal in 2 decades of his skydiving career. OK I’ll take that LOL!
If you’ve ever wondered what it feels like but not wanting to take the risk, some of my friends really got butterflies experiencing the sky dive with me by watching:
Life is a leap of faith. Skydiving is close to what I imagined when I wrote my song “Come Along.” I wrote the lyrics, “Can I learn to fly, leaving all my sorrows and envy passing by.” Skydiving was such a carefree experience and not worrying where things are not in my control is how I choose to live my life. I came across an inspiring quote that summarizes my same philosophical belief, “If you can solve your problem, then what is the need of worrying? If you cannot solve it, then what is the use of worrying?” ~ by Shantideva, a Buddhist Monk who passed away in the year 763.
Another inspiring quote from Shantideva: “All the suffering in the world arises from wanting happiness for self. All the happiness in the world arises out of wanting happiness for others.”
