I finally checked off something new from my bucket list! Zip Lining!
Although I originally wanted to zip line in Africa, Colombia presented the opportunity first—so I took it. However, not without some level of hesitation. I was terrified to have my life dangle from a cord that could possibly snap at any second, but that was just my negative thoughts taking over.
It actually took a lot of convincing from my family for me to work up the guts to do it. After a good 20 minutes worth of contemplation, I made up my mind when I my mom told me, “You’re gonna regret not doing it!”
When I heard her say that, I had no other choice. I had to do it.
I’m so glad I did because it turned out to be one of the most terrifying, yet exhilarating moments of my life! My eyes were wide open the whole time—mostly because I wanted to make sure that I landed safely, but also because I wanted to soak in as much beautiful scenery as possible.
As I soared through the sky, I felt alive and freeeeee. Man, I would love to feel that way again…Hopefully on the world’s longest zip line in Africa.
