I swam in the lake this morning without needing to stop.
In the past two days, whenever I was several feet from the dock, I would panic and turn back. ‘If I can’t find somewhere to stand in the next thirty seconds, I’ll drown.’
That’s what I was thinking, yet, today, I was far from the dock for a long time.
How did this happen? Swimming the past two days, I kept wishing I had a floatation device. I got tired easily.
But today, I could have swam the entire lake without stopping. Now I understand why people don’t buy flotation devices. You can easily float–for a long time–if you just relax.
It’s strange how things can be impossible one day and completely natural the next.
