Driving on the Edge of the World
Two years ago, when we did our first New Hampshire trip, we took a drive up to the top of Mount Washington.
My senses were heightened and my palms were sweaty.
Yes, I let my nerves get to me.
Most of the 8 mile drive to the 6200 foot summit is driven on a very narrow road with no guardrails.
One little slip and that could be it.
This time around, we did it once again and I was much calmer. I focused on my breathing and I had already been exposed to this stress.
In life, a repeated exposure to a stressor builds up resistance to that stress.
The only time FEAR is appropriate is when your body thinks your literal life could potentially be at stake (which is rarely a reality).
A few things to take away from this one.
