never put off having a swim......

I walk past the pool nearly everyday and every day I think “I’ll go for a swim today”.

By the time I’m home I’ve talked myself out of it, or the thoughts “got to do this, got to do that” replace my desire.

Well today, I went for a swim and it was glorious.

I have the life I have always asked for, I’m living my dream. My home a sailing catamaran. My backyard ever changing. The freedom and my delight in nature. Yep, I got exactly what I asked for and yet there are times I don’t see it at all.

We have settled in Cairns, just a quick sail to the Great Barrier Reef, a tropical paradise.

Yet, so quickly, I’ve forgotten.

I’m job-hunting now and my perfect life seems on hold. All self-doubts flood back. The ‘should do’s’ impede me.

Yet, today I stopped and had a swim. I realised that dreams don’t stop, only my creation of them. My perfect life has never lapsed. I only chose to forget.

If I look at what I have achieved, the wonderful creative people I have met, the friends I have made, the experiences had.

The confidence is in me.

The faith that all my dreams are supported.

Only, always.

I need but look.

Trust and enjoy not knowing what lies ahead, excited by all possibilities.

Calm and relaxed in the ‘now’ for this is where all ideas are realised.

For there is no other time. The future a changing thought, never reached. The past gone never to return.

Therefore, I return to the present, and here I have time for a swim….

yippeeee… ; D
