Phoenix AZ January ’13. A massive work event brought me back to my BASE area of choice in the US! Well the one that is legal at least 😉 As Clair Marie I look for fun environments to work in surrounded by supportive and positive people. As BASE girl I make sure that those fun environments contain something of substantial hight that I can huck myself off of as well! Mixing business with pleasure is always a goal of mine, always making sure that I have a good time! Who can argue with that??
Although this particular object is one I have jumped many times it doesn’t take away from the joy I experience at the exit point!! All smiles all the time excited for the adventure that is awaiting me just over the edge. Knowing that I don’t know what will happen throughout this particular jump but confident in my abilities to handle what ever comes my way. Excited for the possibilities for a perfect jump and nervous about the possibilities of a less than perfect jump.
Relaxing into the nerves that are usually misinterpreted as fear but doing so with a smile on my face, radiating positive energy and excitement!!! This is why we do it! This is what drives us to experience something most would call insane! With 2 long strides I’m off the cliff and completely absorbed into less than seconds of peaceful freedom and bliss! It is no wonder I try to jump as much as I can! To constantly put myself back in that space of total trust and completely letting go of the trivial day to day activities that are so easy to get absorbed into! Until next time, the feelings and memories of each jump sit with me, motivating me to search out the next object to jump with more great friends!
