I’m not the sort of person who wants to jump out of a plane (well not if it can land safely anyway)
I don’t do bungee jumps and I have no desire to fling myself off a building, but I do quite fancy feeling what it would be like to be freefalling.
So today, I’ve booked to do an indoor skydive.
All of the fun, none of the abject terror.
I’ve booked it for a couple of weeks time, and I’ll let you know how it goes when I’ve done it (maybe even post a video if it’s not too mortifying) but just booking it got me to thinking about how important it is to try new things.
Yes, I’m taking a safe option rather than doing the real skydiving experience, but it’s something new. I’ll be going to a new place, meeting new people, learning a new skill and experiencing a new sensation. All of this is important to keeping my brain working at it’s best – forming new pathways and firing off adrenaline centres. Who knows, I might even love it so much I want to take the next step and do the plane thing (I doubt it, but you never know).
The weekend is a great time to do new things, but also to plan them, which is all part of the fun.
What do you fancy trying that will broaden your experience?
When are you going to do something about it?
Have a great weekend x
