I use to have a fear of height. I realized one day when i was at the Petronas Towers ( Malaysia) in 2005, looking down, i felt like i will fall from the see through 88 th floor. I also use to have dreams as if i was falling into the dark tunnel and use to get scared to the core.
Then I noticed in the adventure challenging series at the television that to overcome your fear, one needs to face it. So i decided to Sky dive , try it out to and get rid of my fear and guess what!!
It was my birthday coming up in June 2012, and i decided to visit Mauritius that year. I immediately planned and took a flight at the same night with my family and friends. The day 1 i.e on 9 June, 2012; when i reached skydive austral at Mauritius, they refused to make me fly cos i was underweight and the air current was high, it was a heart breaking moment for me. They said if i was 70 Kgs they will make me fly else its dangerous. My mother was swearing on her life to convince me not to fly.
I managed to get a time again the coming Monday i e on 11 June, 2012; when i had a flight back, I ran with my brother to Austral Skydive again and i was lucky that day, they finally allowed me to fly and i was super happy. I cannot express in words how i felt like, you should watch the video and leave your comments below if you life it. When i landed back, i could not stop dancing, what a feeling was that, even now when i remember those moments, i fall in love with life all over again. So now i never miss any chance from flying high.
They were right in saying, face your fears to get rid of them.
And now i feel, why RUN when YOU CAN FLY!!
Will write about my more flying sessions in next fly series soon.
