I'm a chicken. Flat out. The mere thought of going sideways, upside down or higher than three feet evokes sheer terror!
Since I love to travel, I've overcome the fear of flying - as long as it is a regular sized commercial aircraft. Oh yes, did I mention it has to be a smooth flight? Turbulence turns me into a major white-knuckle, "hit me with a glass of Chardonnay" flyer.
So it was with the gravest of apprehension that I agreed to go on a rugged Jeep tour of the mystical red mountains and cliffs of Sedona, Arizona.
If I'm writing this - I lived! Seriously, it was a major milestone in going out of my comfort zone -goals for the Chapter Two in my life.
I closed my eyes only once, when the driver who had a heads up that I was adventure-impaired, prompted me.
I am thrilled I took this step. It is said that Sedona is one of the most spiritual places in the world. I saw up close and personal the reason why. The cliffs, mesas and plateaus are like layers of Red Velvet Cake and just as delicious - visually. The rock formations seemingly speak to your soul. What adventure will I be willing to take next? My mantra is "baby steps" and I consider this amazing Jeep tour a LEAP!
When did you go outside of your comfort zone? How did the experience affect you?
