I still can’t believe I did it. I won’t say I jumped out of a perfectly good airplane. There was a considerable amount of duct tape in the interior. I believe I saw some baling wire as well, and when I watched the pilot strap on a parachute it made jumping out the most prudent choice. I wasn’t sure if I was going to go through with it at all.
Skydiving was without a doubt the craziest thing I’ve done. So many people said I wouldn’t go through with it and I felt like I had something to prove. Something to prove to myself. I’m not just a patient and I will not be defined as one. Every year I come back from Texas having learned more and more about myself and I’m still mulling over the lessons learned this year, will post more on that later.
