When we came across this picture of our courageous friend Kari wearing a Freshen The Bev shirt as she was about to jump out of a perfectly good airplane it hit us like a ton of bricks. Having taken what started as just a crazy dream before taking our own leap of faith and turning it into reality, we knew what was going through Kari's mind at this very moment, 13,000 feet in the air.
Kari's own words about her skydiving experience capture exactly how we felt as we readied Freshen The Bev for our launch back in March...
"...more excited going into it than scared."
"However, I believe fear set in when I got to the exit door."
"While free falling, I realized I was a bit panicked, so I had to mentally talk myself into breathing... My mantra was just breathe, relax, and take it all in!"
"I have to experience this..."
"...opportunity of a lifetime..."
Our favorite line from Kari:
"I consciously picked out that shirt to wear that day! I wanted to be in something 'special' to commemorate the experience...super proud of you guys..."
It's friends like Kari who remind us why we got into this: To set aside our fears and chase our dreams, all while remembering to breathe, relax, and take it all in.
Sounds like the perfect plan for a Life Done Right...
