So, out of fear, I didn’t arrange for the trip into the forest that last year. You know, I don’t fly, and there lots of other fears, so I never even filled the application out to go to the wilderness school. It as something that I always wanted to do, but I didn’t manage to do it. Pictures below
Yet, almost four years later, (after seeing the first application), I decided to use positive thinking and I decided to do ‘everything that I could do, one step at a time’ in order to go to the school.
So, I took the application in hand. Looked at it. Everything about it as fearful to me, everything!
One step at a time, I filled the application out. Told them the amount I could afford for the donation, and I just waited. Soon I got the answer. They accept me.
One by one, one fear by one fear, I conquered the thing that held me back and I actually did the medical exam and did go to the forest. I cut my hair off — that would give me less work in the forest (no hair washing, no shampoo etc), and for other reasons, that helped.
This is one of the most magnificent trips that I took in my lifetime, an educational trip, one of wilderness survival and I’ll remember it always . Yes, my hair grew back. And yes, the trip is a total blessing in my life as it did take quite a bit of fear from me. All I have to do is think of that trip and of that accomplished and I just smile. Great memories. It as hard work but it is worth it.
