This is my last neverdo challenge, and I have saved the best for last. My never do activity is parasailing. To start, I am afraid of heights. My fear isn't completely debilitating, but it can be a real hassle to everyone around me. If we are hiking and I am high up, it isn't necessarily a problem. However, if we are close to the edge, it a whole different story. I get so scared that I shake. The last thing anyone needs when they are on the side of a mountain if to shutter in fear. Most of the time I can accomplish whatever needs to be done, but it takes time and patience on everyone's part. My fear is usually directly proportioned to the likelihood of death if I should fall. When I planned the parasailing trip (which my kids begged for), I knew I would be afraid, but I thought that I would be OK, because I didn' t think that I would fear falling.
I can happily announce that my fears were completely unfounded. Parasailing is peaceful, relaxing, fun and UN-scary. It was a great experience. If I ever get an opportunity to do it again, I'll jump on it.
