So I chose moving to another country first...best decision ever. I lived for 2 epic years in Montreal and learned French along the way. Then I started skydiving...it was amazing. (below - dorky pic of my first skydive) Then I got my A license and started skydiving alone, doing flips, trying new things. That's two off the list...I did backpacking (before this year, I had never backpacked in my life)...now I've done over 150 miles of awesome trails and ready for more. I climbed mountains. I've rock climbed and canyoneered. All this stuff that I had been wanting to do and just waiting for no reason. Our lives are ending one minute at a time, and time waits for no one.
People are meant to grow....everyone gets older, but we don't all get wiser. Getting out of your comfort zone and taking risks makes us much wiser, it's the kind of wisdom you can't learn in a book.
