What's the challenge?
To wear headphones all day long.
What are you afraid of?
When I'm not fully aware, or one of my 5 senses is missing I feel I'm not in control of the situation. So once again, I'm afraid of letting go of control.
How was the experience?
I borrowed my husband's Bose headphones for the day and wore them every time I could, on the subway, on the street, at the office, etc. At first, I felt kinda dumb wearing these huge things and not being able to listen to people talking on the subway or car noises on the street. Then, I realized most of the people were wearing headphones too! So I wasn't missing out on much, since everybody else is tuned into their own world. That's when I started to enjoy the music and found a bigger purpose to walk around NY to spend more time on the journey than trying to get to my destination. Letting go of control is not easy for me, but it is something I have to keep practicing, so send me some cool music I can listen to tomorrow on my way to work!
