Cut to the chase right? Well as you may be able to tell by the heading I conquered a fear. Not just a tiny fear either, I am a 25 year old who has NEVER been a plane. A 25 year old who never wanted or even thought possible that I would go on a plane. Not a lot of people are aware that I was diagnosed with Anxiety (General and Social Anxiety Disorder) and Panic attacks from the age of 12 and although over the years I have conquered many fears that bring on this panic and anxiety, getting on a plane was never going to be one of them and I was completely okay with that.
There are so many different types of people in the world but I am going to focus on the two different types that are standing out in my thoughts the most lately. The first being those of whom have their sh*t sorted out and know exactly what they want in life and their career and secondly those of who have no idea what they want to do, how to do it and when their going to do it. I am the latter. I very much so have no idea what I'm doing.
Don't roll your eyes, you know exactly what I am talking about; you know when you're out at a cafe or a restaurant and you're shaking your head and talking under your breath about the table next to yours because those ridiculous parents thought it would be a good idea to bring their children out for a meal. We would spend so much of our time sighing and getting bothered, making comments like "Why would they come here, with their kids?" closely followed by "When I have children there is no way I would take them to a place like this" or "When I have children, I will never let them behave that way" ... I know I laugh about it now too.
We all have them, the embarrassing stories that go hand in hand with being a parent. Most of which include children saying or doing something, generally concerning wee, poo and vomit in this house; but hey we don't discriminate apparently.
That was my light bulb moment, my 'oh sh*t' moment. My 'you're being to hard on your toddler' moment. I realised I was expecting way to much from her, and in return when she wasn't doing said things I was getting frustrated. Not understanding, what a walking contradiction I was/am.
Geocaching is pretty much a recreational activity that takes place worldwide which involves you following GPS co-ordinates and a brief description to different locations all over. What your looking for are....
You know how sometimes you meet a person and you just know without a doubt they are going to have a huge impact on your life? Whether that be by their actions or something they've said that just resonates with you.. Well I do and I was lucky enough to be blessed with him as one of the biggest personalities in my life; my dad.
