Yes I did it but I was scared!

Last month I was in Phoenix and had the opportunity to do something that was on my bucket list BUT was a little scary!. Next step wake up at 4:00am and head to a private airport for a hot air balloon ride. Even though it was early – very early in fact – I was still a little nervous, my heart was pumping a little bit as was my partner (thanks M.D.) and as the balloons were being blown up I was amazed at how big these balloons are – which added to my anxiety a little bit.

What also made the experience very interesting was the captain calling 15 names and asked a few of us to stand aside and then called my name and asked us to follow him. As we were walking away from our balloon we were approaching another one and I asked him what was going on and he proceeded to tell us his balloon had a 4 foot rip in it and the balloon wasn’t going anywhere. I felt even more anxious as we got invited into his buddy’s basket and away we went.

Within seconds we were up in the air, it was very peaceful, beautiful, and the nervousness faded and turned into pure excitement!

What about you?

  • What have you done but were scared too?
  • What was the scariest thing you have ever done?
  • What is the scariest thing on your bucket list?

I look forward to reading your comments.
