Ever have occasions that you are delighted you were spontaneous? Last week, I had one. After relentless requests from our 6-year-old daughter, we allowed her to jump in the middle of a mall food court with a "Euro Bungy."
Ridiculous!!!! Who does this??
Here's the deal. Charlotte was secured with a harness between her legs and had bungee cords attached to either sides of her hips. The technician then had her jump on a trampoline and raised the cords so that she would ascend 20-25 feet in the air.
As I sat there watching, I realized I had no clue who these people where hoisting Charlotte into the air, nor did I have any knowledge of the equipment, nor did I sign any form that was considered a legal consent/waiver. When does this ever happen?
Because we were SPONTANEOUS, there were no directions or "pros vs. cons" conversations. Charlotte took a risk and you know what? She had a blast!
It was a great lesson for me as a parent and a person. Yes, we should be sensible and smart with our decisions. However, sometimes it just pays to take risks, live a little, and trust that things are going to be okay.
So my challenge to you this summer-----take some risks, get uncomfortable, and be SPONTANEOUS!!
