Changing it up with my posts - thought I'd share with you one of the scariest ideas I decided to do (thanks to GroupOn/Living Social). Bought this on a whim and imagined I'd discover a hidden talent... which I did not. The first time I went up that ladder, I tried to turn around and go back down - they would not let me. I found that the reality of this beginner class was SO MUCH more difficult that I had imagined... My adrenaline was pumping off the charts. Heart pounding. Stomach doing belly flops on itself. My fear of heights overwhelming. ... After the first time, I made myself go up there two more times before throwing in the towel and saying, "flying trapeze is absolutely not my cup of tea.". No, thank you. I do give myself credit for getting the courage to go up there and hold on for dear life, three times. I think that one should try whatever it is at least twice before deciding whether you'll do it again or whether you like it or not.
This video is still hilarious and worth sharing - I giggle laughing my face off every time I watch it. :)

That is too funny! I too am incredibly afraid of heights, and would probably react the same way -- but I've thought about doing this a few times too! :)

Hey, Heather!!! :) You should do it! Take a friend with you thought. Definitely helped to have someone to cheer you on - and hold you afterwards.
