Birthday Skydiving!!

Holy crap!! Let me tell you jumping out of a plane is a very freeing and cleansing experience. Knowing that this could be the last couple of minutes on earth, really makes you think of what is important in life. I thought I was going to be so nervous when the door opened up to jump out. I was the exact opposite ready to jump, ready to conker the task at hand. If I could do this I could do anything in life.

The jump:

The initial feeling was OH SHIT!! But after we stopped spinning and flattened out it was amazing. I was free, able to see everything for miles. The adrenaline rush was overpowering. I felt like when I left the plane I was leaving all my baggage in it, and starting something new something with meaning. Here’s to a new start and a new look on life.
