Not adventurous

Thursday, August 11, 2016

Some people like to go on roller coasters and sky diving. Not me. There are fun, adventurous things I want to do but I have never been a thrill seeker. I would go zip lining or learn to surf. It's interesting how everyone is so different. I admire risk takers even though some of their choices are insane. I

I inherited my tame personality from both of my parents. They are not adventurous at all. Bring an adventure up to my mom and she will focus on the terrifying aspect.
Surfing? A shark could eat you/Snatch off a limb!
Skiing? You could fall off of the mountain/get injured!
Roller coaster? You could get stuck upside down!
Skydiving? You could die!

Anxiety truly is genetic.

I guess that's why I admire people who live life fearlessly. I don't know how to do that. How to be carefree.

Today, my mom was telling me I think too deeply about everything. It's true. I overthink and over worry and it's exhausting. For just a little while, i want to shut my mind off and be carefree.

*Carefree to an extent. I have to right there before someone who thinks they are a smart, wise cookie comments that life is full of responsibilities. Of course it is but that is not the context I am writing th blog in. :)

Are you a thrill seeker, tame, or somewhere in between?

    I'm somewhere in the middle, maybe a bit towards the adventurous side. I've been zip lining, (screamed every trip), spelunking (caving-would NOT do that again-once was enough), stand up paddle boarding, (I'd do that again!-was on my bucket list), hiked a 14,000 foot mountain, (HUGE on my bucket list), so yeah, maybe I am adventurous! All of the above I did after losing the weight, I think it's made me braver/bolder. Or just more confident in myself.
