41 - Facing Fears
Week 41 - Monday 10/9 to Sunday 10/15
I, like many, suffer from a moderate case of acrophobia. It’s sort of selective and I can look out the window of a tall building or an airplane without a qualm. Tall ladders where a fall would likely injure me give me pause but once I get on with the task that required the ladder, I’m fine. This week, a company event gave me the opportunity to visit The Ledge which is on the 103rd floor of the Willis Tower in Chicago. It turns out that standing on a glass balcony and looking 1,353 straight down between my feet will deliver a full-blown case of the heebie-jeebies to even a moderate acrophobic. If it hadn’t been an awesome photo-op, I would have skipped it.
