What Bungee Jumping Taught Me About Visualization
"What Bungee Jumping Tommy about visualization by mascot of free to pursue DOT COM. It's one thirty in the afternoon. The weather's perfect. The crew at Victoria Falls Bungee have just wrapped me in. They've done all the necessary safety checks to ensure good to go there now helping me move to the edge of the platform, because my ankles are secured with tight straps around too thick layers of folded towels to protect my legs from jarring. They're about to receive. My toes are over the edge I. Look out over the Embassy River, and then I hear it three to one bungee. Jump off the platform with a grin on my face and start screaming, Hoo. I take it all in my initial weightlessness, my rate of acceleration, the of the cliffside, the rushing water below, and finally the deceleration has the Bungee saves me from a much shorter life than I would like. I bounce up and down another half dozen times before the experience comes to an end is the best one hundred fifty seven dollars. I've ever spent the not just because of the Bungee jump was even more valuable. Was the lesson I learned in preparing for this experience? One day earlier. On the morning of August twenty, second might travel Buddy Michelle inform me that due to a tight travel schedule, I'd be jumping on August twenty third, not August twenty fourth, as at initially prepared for I didn't say anything at the time, but it didn't sit well with me at all. Up to that point I'd been confidence. I played out the day in my mind for weeks and I felt in control this change tip. The scale and fears favor the reality now. Is that Bungee jumping? If it were still on, the table was to happen number one a day earlier than expected number two after a morning flight on a four seater Bush plane. Those are always eventful number three shortly after we arrived at our lodge, rob our bags, check in and take a shell to the bridge and number four with no. Way To get oriented or settle in. Let's just say that I wouldn't be in my happy place. Later that evening my friends started speaking enthusiastically about the jump, and stopped her dead in her tracks, and informed her that the change made a significant difference to me the sense we were rushing to get in and the fact that I felt I lost some control of the situation changed my jump status from green to amber with a tinge of red. She struggled to understand and I struggled to explain. Processing the change. I've told many crazy stunts over the years. Bucket list does not lie. Bungy was far from the toughest, but of needed to feel that I was in control of the variables surrounding the experience, which both insured I felt safe, and that I can enjoy the moment if anything didn't feel right at all is giving myself permission to walk away Guilt Free I. Guess You could say that I needed to feel that I was free to participate in the experience, not bullied into getting it done by people or circumstances. That night I thought long and hard about what could happen. The next day I worked through all the variables, old and new and processed what the day might look like. I thought about the transportation to the new lodge, but close I would wear the bus ride to the bridge getting a bridge pass at customs to Zimba's a natural border between Zimbabwe and Zambia paying for the jump and finally. Finally getting the gear on and everything involved in the jump itself the sights, the smells feel the wind on my skin, feeling the harness, my heart rate that thought process took the better part of an hour before falling asleep, and in our lying in bed, the following morning that mental preparation made the difference the calmness about me that morning, and thankfully Michelle did not bring up the jump. Indeed. Our understanding of my need to decide on my own terms may have made the difference.

"Connie Connie was a part of the workshop we did in Zambia in southern Africa there was red which was founded in two thousand six by activist Bobby Shriver and musician Bondo to fight aids the women in the workshop you from all over Zambia and each of them have been affected by HIV and aids K. tellers from the moss led the workshop we worked with them for several days to help craft their stories on the final day we did a showcase of stories and a club in downtown Los aka Zambia for some of the challenges of doing this retelling workshops so far away in a very different world well there was the challenge that these were people that were unfamiliar with the moss and not only that that come from a different culture of storytelling and they were also telling the story of the thing that had excluded them and made them the most and ties in their entire life so that was a challenge in the beginning because they need to understand why they were doing this but what was amazing to me was that in the first day as we went around the table and people started to share their stories and that thing that was the thing that isolated them the most in the world suddenly became the currency in the room Sir taught me that Connie so Connie was one of our storytellers Connie was I would say like the feisty this woman in the room she was kind of the camp counselor of all of the other women so here's confident that live at the mall the new soccer Zambia working as a peer educator and counseling people that HIV positive was actually very easy for me because apart from the training that I underwent the prison that is living with HIV and I didn't have any problems we need to cut it came to share my experience with them but when I encountered women that's where expecting women that's where pregnant women that's where waiting to get their results for their children to find out if they're HIV positive or not it was something that I will talk very lightly because I depended mostly on statistics I would just simply say look the last last month maybe we tested a hundred women and then maybe or from the hundred women ninety five of those women with high children that are negative and that was fine because it was a statistic he didn't really touch me so much I had no experience with that and the way women that would come and do woods lamented because they could not get their results sometime in October I would tell them that look if the system saves you have to wait then you need to wait there's nothing that I can do if they say you need to have your child retested you need to have your child retested there's nothing that I can do until I had that experience I took my daughter to be tested which was six weeks old and they pretend to hear of the foot and I was told that I will get the results after two weeks when I went back to the clinic after two weeks the results we know to trade and then I was given another two weeks so in total that was a month of waiting anxiously not knowing whether my child was negative or positive I was very sure that somebody was keeping those results for me because my child was positive and it really scared the hell out of me so when I when back when my child when when it was a month and they told me that the results were not yet ready and I was supposed to take my child back so that they can pre cut again I just said no you're not going to pick my child but those are not the exact words that I used there are ways that I use that I cannot actually repeat here but I just told them you're not going to pick my child you get the results for me today and they couldn't find the results in the clinic but I was very lucky because I had gone to a clinic where even the central lab was located so I volunteered I said I'm going to go to the lab and find the results myself which I did and I went to the lab in St I'm not going to leave this place until you give me my daughter's results fortunately they were able to look at the results so you know what happens when you just deliver here in Zambia you're given three months maternity leave you're supposed to be a toll so I got those results and then almost since procedure was after I get them from the lab I had to take them to the clinic so that they are recorded in their statistics book but somehow somehow how I don't know I bypassed the clinic and instead of being home I found myself at the office I wasn't supposed to be working but I found myself there so does this with you you can try to imagine this crazy woman running into a building with a piece of paper in her hand weeping I was crying and then I just budgeting to allied medical director's office and then when she saw me with a piece of paper in my hand she didn't ask she also started crying so these two women are crying we're not saying anything we just crying weeping and then after some time she started telling me that everything is okay these medication your child is going to be okay in the process she takes the paper looks at it and suddenly she realized but the result was negative.
