I am learning how to swim , and a few days back I came back learning a BIG lesson in life. This guy was teaching me how to float, and there was a moment when I had to curl up like a baby, submerge my head in water and lift my legs… no more touching the ground. They call it ‘Mushroom float’. So basically, you float , putting your weight on the head..
There is that one moment when you just lift the lower body up.. when the panic sets in
what if you fall down?
since you are no longer touching the ground
what if you drown?
and then you tell yourself just one thing
trust yourself.. trust your body.. wait for just 1 more second…
you let your head take the responsibility and let go of the lower part.
you just hold on for that one sec
and there you are –
I am not speaking from a book
or anyone else’s experience
I felt it that day
and i cant forget this basic lesson
just stay calm for those crucial moments.. and you would be over it
Enjoy the freedom it gives
Nothing calms you like the feeling of ‘letting go’
