THIS IS ME THURSDAY
I LOVE the water! Inspired by our pool fun today 😘 Water is powerful. Our bodies are made up mostly of it. We're cleansed and refreshed by it- salt water & showers. It comforts us- relaxation & muscle tension. It challenges us- athletically and mentally.
I remember when I was younger at the beach, I learned a very important lesson. I was scared to go in the water because of the waves crashing in (I'd been taken down before and the feeling of drowning and loss of orientation is terrifying 😬). There was a lady that came up next to me seeing my distress. She told me, "Once the wave crashes, THAT'S when you run in." I have never forgotten that experience and she probably doesn't know how much I internalized that advice.
Two things I took away from that:
1. I can overcome hard things. If I can find a solution, and then just put my head down and commit then I will be successful in the end despite my fear.. which will only lessen it.
2. Sometimes the circumstances of LIFE holds you down and whips you around, and can be terrifying. But that shouldn't stop you from enjoying the fullness and beauty of life. It's not about fighting against life, but rather learning how to work with it! Learning how to move with its ebbs and flows. Learning the is a time to wait and a time to fight and a time to enjoy!
