How Skydiving Prepared Me for a Pandemic

How are you, precious human?!

I’m back in your inbox today after 10 months of expansive travel. Turns out at 33, I needed a sabbatical. I feel so blessed to have had that time to unwind and explore. I filled my cup back up and now I’m ready to serve.

Like the rest of the world, COVID-19 had me cancel my plans. But I had one experience, 14,000 feet in the air that prepared me for this pandemic…


I’m deathly afraid of heights. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I could jump out of an airplane, but I did.

These steps helped me face my fear, and they’re helping me stay present in this global pandemic, too.

1. I freaked. I worried. I asked a million questions.

2. I laughed.

3. I surrendered and put my trust in my guide.

4. I practiced sensory awareness the whole way up in the plane in order to stay present.

5. I accepted my situation.

This video below will tell you my story.

What tools are you using during this time? I’d love to know your tips. Reply in the comments, I can’t wait to hear from you.
