At the start of the year, I crafted a personal battle cry. And it's "New World in 2012". It has been my practice to come up with such line for my personal goal setting for the coming year. It started in 2008 with "2008 will be great", and then followed by "Shine in 2009", then "Golden 2010" and last year's "Get Even in 2011". Here are links to articles in Tatak Digitista to give you some more backgrounder.
Anyway, true to that goal I set for the year, I'm bolder this time around, to conquer new worlds. New world does not necessarily mean a new place. It could also be a new experience which can be a world in itself. And lucky enough, a couple of weeks ago, I hit a personal milestone for the year by doing something for the first time.
Guess what I just did? I just tried doing the zipline in Tagaytay! :) I know some of you may react that it's not that difficult to do but folks, each person has a different body chemistry and psyche, and what may be easy for one may be difficult for another person and vice versa. At first, I was quite hesitant to do it (and I just want to ride the cable car. It was not my first time though since I've already tried it in Sentosa, Singapore.). Why? Well, perhaps because of fear that I don't know how my body will react to heights (since I had a not so good experience last time) and how my friends will respond since I feel am not that fit to do the zipline.
