There are vehicles that gives us excitement and fun. Of freedom that’s totally exhilarating. Of a moment where your heart pounds strongly with joy.
My brother-in-law woke us up early all excited for our parasailing adventure. We rode a tricycle that took us to the beach where a boat awaits.
I decided to back out as soon as we reached the floating bamboo platform. I slipped and fell 3 days ago and hurt my back. I was pain-free that day but I got scared that I may have back spasm while on air.
I could hear the laughter of my wife’s sister as the parasail wing lifted off. Soon enough, she and her brother were like tiny birds hovering the cloudy island sky. I could hear my brain saying, “Up, up and away!”
During their descent, the boat captain teased them a bit as their feet bounced on the dark blue waters. We were all paranoid of sharks. The boat captain assured us there were none. At least none that they saw recently.
I asked my brother-in-law, “How was it?” He said, “It was a lot of fun. I felt totally free as if nothing else matters. “
In a way, I wanted to experience it myself but my fear of my back overshadowed my sense of adventure. I felt bad for a moment. On our way back to the beach, the boat captain let me drive the speed boat.It was fun. Not the “Oh, my gosh” kind of fun but more of a “That’s so cool” kind of fun.
Thank you for joining me in this week’s Sunday post called “vehicle.” Just remember that it’s not just how we ride the tides that creates unforgettable events but whom we share it with.
Whatever opportunities life gives us, always try to make the most of it. Always try to have fun and make new exciting memories. I did and I can’t wait for my next adventure.
