Have you ever...

Have you ever done something that has terrified you, just to prove to yourself that you could? If I was to tackle my biggest fear then it would be to hold a spider, but I'll never bring myself to do that.

This was the next best thing. I abseilled off a crane in Glasgow for charity... turned out it was great fun and I'd love to do it again.

I give blood every 3 months, even though I have a phobia and real bad fear of needles.


Do it today. :D

Just what I need for the day. I'll never last 20 minutes of being impaled by syringes.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Well, I got fishies and set up my own tank even though my family and closest friend thought I couldn't. But no, I cant think of anything off the top of my head that I have really done. Most things are long term and are barely in effect

As for meeting a fear, yah, I fell off my pony, which is my biggest fear. I have fallen off before, but that was into soft grass, or off a tiny pony, and I got up laughing about it. This was more serious, in that I got pretty hurt, and my confidence was shaken for a long time. But on Saturday I rode her the ENTIRE way on the trail and back, without getting off, and just a few spooks and gallops!

Oh, by the way, what is abseilling? (I dont think I spelled that right)
