Last year I walked over a rope bridge in the rainforest in Ghana. This bridge was above the canopy... the tallest trees in the forest. I was scared all day and didn't think I was going to be able to make it across. I did and it was so beautiful! I'm so glad I was able to walk over that hurdle, even if my legs were shaking in the beginning.
I spent this past weekend in Chicago with my friend Emma (and saw my dad every now and then since we stayed with him while he was at his medical conference). Among many fun sight seeing activities (strolling near Obama's old crib, Millenium Park, Shedd Aquarium, Navy Pier...) I was actually the one who suggested a trip to the top of Sears Tower (now known as Willis Tower). Yes my friends, I suggested a trip to a building that held the record of tallest building in the world until 1996. AND when we were 103 floors up, I actually stepped out onto the skydeck and looked straight down... some major courage on my part.
