As a former paratrooper we were trained that when you exited the aircraft, you give a 4 second count, and look up to see if your main chute is open. Truth be told, you almost always felt a tug before you finished the count, but you looked up anyway, just to make sure it was fully functional. Luckily, the only time I ever had to pop my reserve was to climb down after I landed in the trees and was about 20 feet off the ground at final rest. Thank you God!
Life is the same way, if you just think about something and never attempt it, you’ll never know what could have been.
