Finish the Race
Every time I sink and begin to drown, I remember that I can save myself. All I need to do is kick to the surface of my problem and swim as hard as I can to solid ground.
Fight or Flight
In my panic “fight or flight” kicked in. I forgot all about the race and switched my focus to saving my life. I doggy paddled my way to the five-foot zone. I could not stop until I could put my feet on solid ground. Of course, once I stood up, my choking became more violent. I coughed like crazy. Expelling the water, I had swallowed along with the bug that started the whole fiasco. When I finally opened my eyes, I could see the other kids slamming their hands against the wall. I saw them claim their first, second, and third places and end the race. I could also see a lifeguard removing his shirt as he prepared to dive and save me.
LET’S THRIVE TOGETHER
Thanks for allowing me to share my story with you. I hope it helps at least one person see the opportunity waiting for them as we move forward together.
Miracles and Blessings
