Welcome to a new section of the blog in which I share with you things that have happened to me either good or bad, but hopefully funny. Anyway, I decided to do this type of posts last year but I had too many reviews to share with you that I couldn’t find the right moment to tell you a story. Now, I still have a lot of book reviews to share with you, but right now I don’t feel like writing one so here I am.
Like the title says, I’ll tell you all about the first time I went to an amusement park and how I thought I was going to die every time I rode a roller coaster lol. This is going to be a short post, but I hope you like it!
So this happened when I was like 12 o 13 years old, around 2009 or 2010. I just realized it’s been a decade since that time, oh my god, time flies! Anyway, I live in a small city so we don’t have amusement parks here but fairs did come here so I went to those a few times but I never ever rode roller coasters because I like feeling the ground under my feet and I didn’t want to defy gravity lol.
However, when I was 12 I decided to face my fears and go to the biggest and most famous amusement park in the country, which is like 4 hours away by car from where I live. I went with my oldest cousin, my parents, my brother and I don’t remember who else. I was so excited but at the same time so damn scared because roller coasters are intimidating!
Once there we bought the VIP pass so we didn’t have to wait in the queue for hours, it feels like you are royalty, you just go into the games like they are waiting for you. That part was nice because that way I didn’t have time to overthink and change my mind. Honestly, the moment I sat down in the cart and buckled my seat belt, I knew something big was gonna happen. It did.
During the ride of all roller coasters, I prayed to all the gods and anyone willing to listen to make me come out alive lol I was so damn scared the majority of the time I closed my eyes and screamed like someone was hurting me. The sensation in my belly was so strange but oddly enough, I became addicted to it. I compare that feeling in my stomach to what it most feel like to fall in love with someone, I have no way of confirming or denying this, but if I fall in love, I’ll let you know if I’m right.
Anyway, when I stepped out of the cart, I felt like the strongest young girl ever! I was still scared, but I was so proud of myself for going through it all. And now, a little over 10 years later, I go every year to the amusement park because I love roller coasters now!
I don’t know if anyone is still reading up to this point, but if you are, then thank you. But also, I hope you learn something from this, that facing your fears is never easy, but once you do, you will be a new stronger version of yourself. I also hope you enjoyed this post, if you did, then let me know in the comments so I can try to do this more often. And if you have faced your fears before, tell me all about it in the comments!
Until the next post!
Happy reading 💙
