Face YOUR Fears - like I did!
Twenty-one years ago - I was abandoned up the Eiffel Tower!
And 38 years prior to that - Audrey Hepburn apparently got ‘lost’ up the tower too!
I was shopping for souvenirs - and when I came out of the store with keychain in hand - my school class had gone.
They can’t have gone far - surely?!
But they had.
I searched for them - and found no-one - they had left me.
At twelve years old - I was stood alone - in a foreign country - up the Eiffel Tower!
I started to panic.
I found the stairs - no exit.
I panicked more.
I found the elevator - along with a sea of other people waiting - but not my class.
My heart was beating fast.
I now had to wait - would my ‘friends’ still be waiting for me when I finally get to the bottom?
And to top it off - I had a fear of elevators!!
When I finally reached the bottom - I stood directly underneath the ginormous tower - looking around at where I should be heading
I should have listened to the teachers - when they informed us of where the bus would be parked.
But of course - I didn’t think I’d need to know - I didn’t expect my friends - or my whole class for that matter - to leave me.
Somehow, though - I followed my nose - and found the bus.
I sat in my seat - now surrounded by my friends.
“Where did you go?” - they asked
I burst into tears!
Where the heck did they go??
I had nightmares for years after that.
But - I wasn’t letting that stop me from going up the tower again.
This time - I had my hubby with me - and I knew he wouldn’t let me go.
And he didn’t
And I love it!
The tower is HUGE - but despite only growing a couple of inches in the last twenty years - it seemed smaller than I remember.
And definitely less daunting.
I LOVED this experience - despite having this fear for years.
My hubby helped me through my nightmare - which has now been replaced by a beautiful memory.
We ‘visited’ this amazing monument - THREE times - it truly is mesmerizing!
You, too - can face your fears - and I can help you.
Loving your body can be just as daunting.
Stripping down to your undies can seem like a nightmare - especially in front of a stranger.
But I like to think of myself as a friend - who will hold your hand through this beautiful - and fun - experience.
Well - I won’t actually hold your hand (unless you want me to) - that might get a little weird!
But I will most definitely talk you through every step - every smile - every pose.
It is a big step to take - to face your fears - stepping out of your comfort zone - but believe me - it is totally worth it
Don’t believe me?
