Hey you guys!!! Happy Thursday!!! Today, has been a fine day, but sometimes, I wonder if my goals are achievable!! Have you ever had one of those days where you can’t stop thinking…
Well… DON’T QUESTION. DO. (This is the conclusion I’ve come to…)
Alright, so aside from giving myself the third degree today (yep, I’m being random), I swam 2.5 miles. It was a tiring swim, but I’m glad I did it because honestly, I wasn’t feeling my best this morning. I think coaching outside in the nasty humidity is getting to me, but (What can I say) I love coaching, so I’ll stop the complaints right here!
Tell me, HAVE YOU EVER SACRIFICED COMFORT FOR SOMETHING YOU LOVED DOING?!
Okay, soooo… swimming…on a Thursday…aaand…I’m being random…SO…say hello to RANDOM FACT THURSDAY:
I question my abilities as a swimmer a lot! Why? I’m not 100% positive. I hold swimming (very) dear to my heart (because I’m a mermaid after all…JK), so maybe that’s why I’m so hard on my swimmer self. I’m not like that with running, so, yeah, kinda weird!
The feeling I get when I swim is indescribable… I’m free from ridicule and unkindness…I’m free from anything and everything that is bothering me…ironically, swimming feels like home (a.k.a. safety, security, etc.). The taste of chlorine, the feel of my swim cap on my head, even the water that seeps into my goggles…I feel like I’m home…
WHY DO I SWIM?! Because there is nothing else I’d rather do!
I’m a dreamer; therefore, I have big dreams for swimming…dreams that I will not yet reveal, but dreams that I am working towards…
Today, in the middle of my 2,000 yard I.M. set, a woman stopped me and asked…
“ARE YOU A PROFESSIONAL SWIMMER?!”
Although I’m not, I wanted to hug her because… in the middle of my swim…in the middle of my doubts…in the middle of my roaming mind…I BELIEVED…I BELIEVED!!
DO YOU EVER DOUBT YOURSELF?! WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE IN?! XOXO!!!
