i took a step outside my comfort zone this weekend with a 2-day sailing course on a hunter 36 with my dad. i haven't been on a sailboat in over 20 years and even in those limited experiences, i had never been involved crewing the boat, other than being allowed to hold the tiller and told where to point it. the course itself was a lot of fun and once i was on the boat i found myself a lot more comfortable and a lot less intimidated than i expected to be. what i didn't expect was how great of an experience it was to take myself out of the space my life normally occupies and really dive into this headfirst for the whole weekend.
