The jump was wonderful. Did the visualizations, smiled, took a couple of deep breaths, and just said f*ck it and let go.
When I initially got everything on, the leg straps again were floppy- perhaps even moreso as I seem to have lost a couple of pounds since last week. After some discussion amongst the instructors about what to do, one of them just took an extra few minutes to work on the harness and was able to adjust the leg straps so they weren't hanging off of me. Instant confidence!
Winds picked up in the afternoon preventing me from doing the next level jump; hoping the weather will cooperate this weekend. Cannot wait to get up there again.

The funny little secret is that you can apply this to everything else you encounter in life now too. Very true ... I was trying to get a giant bug out of my house the other day and was all "I can do this. I jump out of planes, I jump out of planes ..."
