What are three things you'd do tomorrow if fear wasn't stopping you?

I'm participating in a link up you can find HERE.

The question of the month is: What are three things you'd do tomorrow if fear wasn't stopping you?

My 3 Things Are:

1. I'm very afraid of heights. I was impressed with myself last year when I did a balcony tour at Mesa Verde. I was thinking, "They do tours all the time I'm safe" Nope! They had one balcony that had a wooden ladder that went to another balcony. Then the path had no rail. I was FREAKING out. Thankfully someone from another family (the Dad) was freaking out to. I didn't feel so alone. Also the raven that happened to fly, and land in their window distracted me. Let's just say that I listened to nothing the tour guide said. My mind was on my kids staying safe.

I'd do the tour again, only listen to the tour guide this time. It may be harder knowing what the tour is all about.




We had to walk right on that edge. YIKES!

2. Zip lining. It looks pretty, but ya fear gets in my way.

3. A day of rides. My boys all love rides like roller coasters and flying swings. Not me. I picture the swings flying off, and the coaster flying off the rail. I hate watching my boys on the rides. I think, "There goes my family." Seriously! BUT it would be nice to relax, and go on rides to have fun with them.

What about you? What are three things you'd do tomorrow if fear wasn't stopping you?

I am terrified of heights too, but I am forcing myself to get over it. I HATED the roller coasters at Cedar Point that my family loves so much, but sucked it up and got on them. Turns out, they weren't so bad and I really did enjoy hopping on them. I still panic in high buildings, but deep breathing seems to help there too.

I feel the same way about the rides at travelling carnivals. They're constantly being taken apart and put back together again and they don't have the same maintenance programs that theme parks have got.

I once went ziplining and missed the thing I was meant to grab onto at the end. I glided back out a few meters and had to try and pull myself back up with my arms. Then an attendant came along and pointed out the rope that was next to me for just such an occasion :P

I am the same about those traveling carnivals. I avoid those things like the plague because I know they are not as safe as they claim they are.

I'm afraid of falling... not heights. Lol.
Also, motorcycles. Lol, I think they are so dangerous.
I don't know what I would do if fear wasn't a factor though...

I don't travel by myself because I am chicken. Not sure what I am chicken of either.

I don't like rides either but usually they make me sick. Heights are one of my fears.

I don't mind heights and roller coaster, I don't don't find them that fun. Carnivals though, something about the atmosphere draws me; that doesn't mean I ride all the rides.

I'm afraid of heights too. Although there are certain heights I can handle. I like to go on rides, but no one could ever get me to go on a roller coaster that goes upside down. Nope!
