Face of the day

mirror-on-faceYou are today’s face of the day and so am I.

I read an article today  about a reporter facing her fears of parachuting by doing a tandem jump with an instructor.

Their main parachute failed to open but the backup one did and they landed safety.

I think we all have had times in our lives when our ‘main chute’ failed to open. You think everything is fine and that you are safe and secure in some way and then wham, something bad happens and you don’t know if you are going to make it through or not.

I experienced that feeling again today. Out of the blue. I had a strong stress reaction which made me feel nauseous and stopped me eating my evening meal. I know what I have to do. I am deploying my backup chute. I have been for a walk. I have focussed on my breathing. I am having a cup of tea. I hugged my daughter, I talked about it and later I will have self indulgent little cry. I haven’t landed safety yet but I will. The chute is there I just have to pull the right strings.

Have you experienced that feeling? What is your reserve parachute?
