post-panic

I said yes, before we even took the trip. I said yes to snorkeling on an unknown shore, being brave and all and pretending to not be afraid of drowning.

There was some hyperventilating (on my part), and a lot of nudging and pleading (that would be Greg) especially after the warnings before we got in the water about being dashed on the lava rocks and/or coral, but I launched myself off the back of the sailboat just the same.

I know this is a given for many people, but for me, somewhat water phobic? It was a huge thing.

I'm glad I took the plunge.

Did you see anything cool? I did the first time I went (terrified) and was thrilled to see lots, but the second time, meh. Glad you tried something new! We all need to venture outside the comfort zone...

You are so brave. I'd have been planted on the beach, watching, and then filled with regret when I got home.

Frame it, immediately.
