March 18--Impossible?

Start by doing what's necessary, then what's possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible.  --St. Francis of Assisi

    I once formed a group of woman who named ourselves the Brave Broads (hence the blog name). We had the ultimate goal of skydiving. We started out doing what was necessary--looking at ourselves, our lives, and the limiting beliefs causing us to be fearful in a vast number of ways. We bonded as a group, learning to open up to each other about our faults, flaws, quirks, mistakes, hopes, dreams, joys, etc. I worked with each one individually in private coaching sessions, as well as working with my own coach. As we expanded our view of what was possible for us, we successfully tackled the Kansas State University Challenge Course, an excellent team-building exercise. We traveled together to Chicago and to a women's retreat in Alabama. 
    We had made the reservations for our skydive well in advance. Though we knew the date, it seemed fairly sudden that the big day was upon us, the day to do "the impossible." Long story short, we each jumped tandem out of a perfectly good airplane. In an instant, complete and utter terror turned into the ecstasy of free-falling. It was an amazing "impossible" experience. Sometimes I think back on it and can hardly believe I really did it. Fortunately I have the video to prove it!
    St. Francis "nailed" it.
