A Feeling of Being Fully Alive

March 9, 2014: a highlight in my life.

You have to seize the moment. You have to take a chance. Is life not short enough? What is there to fear?

So, when life gives you the opportunity to jump out of a plane and skydive...would you do it?

I did.

I truly believe that whatever is meant to be, will always find its way and that there is a reason you meet certain people in your life. This weekend, I saw a friend that I haven't seen in almost 10 years. People move around and life goes on, but I guess with the help of social media & Facebook, they're never entirely off your radar. Never in a million years would I have expected to skydive with this person and our rekindled friendship shows that sometimes good hearts can still find each other...even after all these years. 

It was a weekend filled with all five senses: sight, touch, taste, smell and oh...HEARING. Hearing the wind blow as you drop down from the sky and hearing my ears pop continuously as it readjusted to the pressure...hearing laughter and screaming. Skydiving was the feeling of being fully alive.
