Keep Moving Forward
Last night was a difficult swim, but I am still glad that I went. I did a mile, but it was the hardest swim I have done the last 37 days because I am still smarting from the conversation earlier tonight. I hit the emotional landmine the first day in August, but I am feeling pretty okay today. I attribute it to having these anchors that are keeping me on a more productive path than in years past where all I could do was to relive and rethink the realities that were causing me the most grief.
Lest You Sink
The good news is that I did swim through it so I do not feel the whole evening was a loss. As I was swimming, I thought how without moving forward, I will sink and I thought it was applicable to the situation at hand, if I remain in this turbulent water so to speak, I will drown in these negative thoughts, so I have to keep moving forward, no matter how uncomfortable it might be. So that was a good benefit of the swim. And now at midnight, made it through one full day of August!
