I wanted to tell you that I overcame my biggest fear and jumped off a boat into the ocean miles off shore! And I am still here to tell you about it. I also saw tons of the most beautiful black spotted and bottle-nose dolphins (which I have video of!).
What an incredible trip. I am truly grateful to be here in Costa Rica. We also saw lots of hungry crocodiles, but they did not eat me. However they did eat two poor souls over as many weeks.. I did not jump into the Sierpe River water (which led us out to the ocean).
There was a big storm when we got out there, and I nearly lost my lunch, but something interesting happened. I got angry at the frustration of being on a roller coaster I couldn't get off of, and suddenly a switch went off inside me; I wasn't nauseated any more and I wasn't afraid. I've never experienced that before, but it was amazing to see that my will was so strong that it won against fear. We can all do this! I am rooting for you :) Do something that scares you today!
