Maine Mendoza’s Skydiving Post Will Inspire You To Try It Yourself

If you’ve ever wanted to do something crazy or memorable for this year, then take your cues from Yaya Dub, as Maine Mendoza just had a life-changing experience to cap off 2018.

While on break from her commitments in the United States, the “Eat Bulaga” host just accomplished an extraordinary feat: she went skydiving in Miami, Florida!

A post shared by Maine Mendoza (@mainedcm) on

Maine divulged her experience in a New Year’s Eve post on Instagram, where she said that she had always wondered how it would feel to fly.

Maine wrote:

I have always wondered how it would feel to fly. How do birds feel when they soar through the sky. How it feels to see everything from up above. I was fortunate enough to experience this in the magic city— Miami.

Maine also shared how nervous she got in the moments leading up to the actual dive — from signing the waiver to sitting inside the aircraft.

Funny thing, I almost cried while sitting inside the aircraft– incredibly nervous and happy– because DAMN I cannot believe I am actually doing this!

Maine added:

But when we jumped off, I felt nothing but absolute bliss. For the most part, it felt unreal to me. It was breathtaking– literally, too. It was amazing. Best part is I didn’t pee my shorts! Seriously though, I cannot believe I actually did it; I took the ultimate plunge! I was so freakin scared but still I made it alive. Lol! Next on my bucket list is to do it alone. (Charot, semi-not charot!) It made me realize most of the things worth doing starts with being nervous or terrified. You just gotta take the leap and make it happen. You might just be amazed at what you could achieve and how far your jump can take you ONLY if you take the chance. Sabi nga sa Nike, “just do it”! Some things are always worth a try. At the end of the day, chances are you’ll be thanking yourself for taking the risk because it made you happy… or at least alive. 

I hope we all get to experience new things and collect wonderful memories this 2018! Happy New Year, everybody! ?
