The bucket list- the leap of faith

You know that lovely moment when you look at something and you fall in love. No I am not talking about guys here. That moment when you see something and you know you wanna do it.  One of those “do or die” things, or to rephrase it better, “do and can die” things. Huh?

Have you ever felt life makes you write a never ending bucket list? Like ohh look at that now thats on my bucket list.

Oh okay enough rambling.

So couple of years ago while watching tv I stumbled upon this show where they were showing the best water parks on the world and one of them was Atlantis which is this park in dubai and they showed the leap of faith, which is this crazy almost vertical really tall slide, ooh and did I tell you there are sharks in the water down?

So yeah long story short on 2nd January of this year I went to atlantis and I had my first real look at the leap of faith, gulped a couple of times, remembered the various gods in the world, put on a brave face(and my swimsuit) and told my mum let’s tacke the leap of faith. Five minutes later we are shivering of cold and maybe fear and watching people slide down screaming, saying some really nice words and well remembering their respective gods. So when it was my mums turn and she did it I was like heck! If she can do it I can do it too. So well I get myself into the slidey part and take my leap of faith, and then I look down and the sight isn’t realky pretty. It’s like you are jumping down a 10 storey building luckily I reach water and get done with the leap of faith.

You know you should test your boundaries, reach for the unreachable, do the undouble, and mostly love the unlivable.

Forever confused,
Sitara.
