I found myself getting back on the swim team last week. Why? The only other "exercise" I was really doing was karate, and after sitting, eating, studying, and crafting, I realized this isn't exactly healthy. And although five days a week is a big commitment, not to mention Saturday meets..I've missed swimming. Team cheers, swim banquets, the call of the announcer, a good warm-up...it brings back nice memories. I'm glad I decided to join back up again.
Swimming...from one end of the pool to the other. Swimming, from one challenge to the next. And swimming through life.
It's hard. I get it. Some days we feel totally happy, and others..not so much. Disappointments in life, like not getting than A on the exam even though you studied a lot, or not getting the drama club role or job position you wanted so badly. Finding yourself in an impossible situation. It sucks. Sometimes, we just want to stop and give up.
But the other end of the pool is that hope. That even though things are rough now, they'll get better if we keep on swimming. If we pray with every stroke, we'll realize there's a lot more to life than we could have ever imagined.
So do it.
just keep swimming, just keep swimming..we're all rooting for you.
