I’m currently on vacation and thought work has gotten me through so much of this trip.
It all came to a screeching halt though when my waitress mentioned sharks.
I’ve already decided to go on the snorkeling trip even though I’m terrified. I know that if I go home I will regret not doing it.
But I’m having a hard time practicing the thoughts to make the trip easier.
I’ve tried to prepare myself that yes, there are sharks in the water but they won’t attack me. The odds are very slim.
I can’t seem to shake the visuals of it possibly happening. And I know that I will do the snorkeling trip. I’m more so worried about being too scared that I won’t enjoy the trip.
