Guest post excerpt from shared on September 15, 2021.

For years, I had one rule when I went to amusement parks: NEVER go on the thrill-seeking, height-defying rides. 

Personally, I don’t like to feel terrified for the “fun” of it. Also, I have a propensity for motion sickness and an inherited curvature of my spine, held firm by a large metal rod. My body can’t take being jolted and jarred, so I have generally heeded the signs posted throughout the parks that warn about bodily injury or harm. Instead, I spent most of my days waiting and carrying “all the things” while others sought excitement.

Yes, my health concerns were valid. However, deep down, I knew I was also being sidelined by unrealistic fear. I was tired of missing out on these rides, only hearing about their reactions and interactions with one another after they found me (and all their belongings) waiting for them on a nearby bench. 

To find out how this played out, and if I decided to join them, read the rest of the story here: GUEST BLOG: From Pack Mule to Reluctant Rider – The Soft Never
