    Question Throw myself off a mountain for my 40th

    Well, Im hoping someone will talk me out of it obviously!
    My neighbour does tandem paragliding, he goes up the local mountains by my house when the weather is good, but windy.

    Hes called Mark Harris, its Red Dragon Paragliding...Ive checked out his you tube video, talked to him etc. Im 13 and half stone, so Ive got to loose half a stone before end of January......

    I cant stop thinking about doing it..like a red button that says "DONT PRESS" and all I want to do is press it to see what happens!

    Now, obviously with panic and anxiety, if I DO it, off a mountain thats 1000ft...well, I can do anything!

    Dont like the thought of signing the disclaimer.."in the event of death or injury..."...but I cant sit in this chair for the rest of my life...just imagine if I did it! dont think anyone thinks I can from my family, I feel like doing it just to show them..or myself...I dont know.

    Right, Im relying on my sensible friends to tell my this is a terrible idea, and to spend 200 in a Lush shop instead....come on.

    I think this is a brilliant idea,go for it. you could raise money while you do it for a charity you support to give you that little incentive, & after go and spend 200 in lush. btw i wouldnt take my own advice xx

    Your trying that's the main thing swimming yesterday really relaxed me.

    You can do the mountain thing paula, I believe if you really want to do it you will. You may even enjoy it and want to do it again

    Sparkles..the charity thing seems like a great idea, I didnt even think of that. Maybe I could raise some money for NMP?
    Sammi, thanks for having faith in me.x
    My worst fear is, not the mountain...aahhh....its saying I will do it, then bottling out, and letting everyone down. Have to think about it seriously, how to just....do it.
    If I DO it, I will get hubby to video it, and put it on you tube, so you can all have a look! Imagine that..........aaahhhh x

    Hi Paula lynne,

    I think it's a wonderful idea, why don't you pray about it, and if Father God puts peace in your mind and heart, then you know it's the right thing to do.

    I have faith in you that you will make the right decision. We could pray together if you want.

    Father God, I pray that you give Paula lynne peace in her heart and mind, give her your blessing in doing what ever it is that you want Paula lynne to do, I put this situation and Paula Lynne into your hands. Father God give Paula lynne strengthen, love, peace of mind.

    I say this in your precious name Jesus Amen.

    Yvonne
