Today I was thinking I would hop onto my laptop and begin sharing a unique story of when I was working for a company called Tree Service Nanaimo on Vancouver Island. Things definitely do change, my story was going to begin with the taxing jobs of a groundsman but then I realized I wanted to spice things up a notch.
Hoping my readers enjoyed my last post, some would see it as a little out of character for me, but the reality of it is that I have grown a lot since the last time I shared my words.
There have been many occurrences in my life where I’ve wanted to turn back because of fear and self-doubt. I don’t really want to go into too much detail with this, what I want to focus on is the experiences that I’ve persevered through and accomplished, not only has that been the theme of my writing thus far to a certain point, but it makes me feel better! People generally don’t like talking about their failures unless they carry the ability to make humor of it, and that my friends is a gift.
I’M HERE FOR THE RIDE OR DIE PRINCIPLE! My concept on reality and materialistic existence has been stretched and stretched. What do I mean by this? Well I simply have gone out of my way to test My Guardian Angel’s; let’s put it that way. This adventure was another true test for my friends with wings, yes I believe in something more than me! One thing I have grown to realize, something I really didn’t understand when I was in my early twenties, the world does not revolve around you, and it’s a blessing!
So this cliff photo represents the time where I thought it was a brilliant idea to impress the ladies, (yes this is a daredevil like event that I can create some humor out of). Of course, beautiful woman all around me and the gentleman who stand before me have bigger goosebumps than me in minus forty. I pass through to the front of those standing in awe, and I jump without hesitation. This was a cliff off the coast of Hawaii, a tourist attraction to some but more prominently known to the locals. It took me another fifty minutes to reach the top again, once I hit the peak something clicked for me. Treat the jump like everything else in life, don’t let the self-doubt and fear create walls for your hearts true path! Please! That was my big take away, because even though I was terrified to move any closer to the edge I envisioned Mike Tyson in a boxing match, that man shows no fear and looks as hungry for flesh as he does for grandma’s homemade apple pie… In actuality he’s terrified, and he admits it. Don’t let others see it, it’s not an honesty break, where you can show the “fake side”, what it is is proving to yourself that you are going to do something you have never done before and this is what it is going to take.
