Summer Fun

Monday, July 08, 2013

Yesterday, I went for a swim, something I have not done in years! I was always to embarrassed of how the way I looked in swim trunks. Well I just said to myself screw it, I love the water, I was a long distance swimmer in high school. So it did not matter to me how I looked in my suit, I looked good swimming! I even impressed the life guard on how well I did in the water. It felt great getting back into the water after such a long time.

    I'm fortunate to have a pool in my back yard so it doesn't matter how I look.

    We're so critical of ourselves. I bet you looked good. emoticon

    Bravo for doing what you enjoy doing!

    It is so silly, the way we limit ourselves because we fear the perceptions of other people. Well done to you for just going for it. Now make it a habit, Friend!
    Swimming is a talent, and it should be enjoyed!

    Im in the same place you were in before. I so want to go swimming but am so ashamed of how Id look! I am going to check out water aerobics( am scared of that too) because I know it would help me. I hope you had a blast! I miss swimming so much and you give me such courage!

    emoticon YEAH, STEVEN!!! I'm sure you looked just fine in the water! People are always too concerned about how they look when swimming, when in truth, they ALL look FANTASTIC, because they've all chosen to get in the swim of things (pun intended!) and engage in one of the healthiest, most summer-friendly sports a person could choose. And here you were even a long distance swimmer in high school! BRAVO!!
