float, just float

The key to staying afloat when in a tuff situation is preserving energy, if your in the water turn over on to your back and float bring your breathing down to a low and try to be still, it will give you space to think about the situation your in and how to get out of it, I’ve done this a thousand times after swimming into the deep end, to rest my arms and catch my breath.

But what if your not swimming, what if your not anywhere near the sea standing on your feet, but you feel like your drowning, what if you left all that you know and find yourself in a place where things are, well just not what you expected, am I that good of a swimmer I ask myself.

why did you swim out so far that you lost all perspective and sense of direction, you made some right choices and you made some wrong ones this is clear.

did you think that there was something waiting for you? something on the other end as curious as you? that it would meet you half way? maybe it’s the conditions maybe thats why your feeling insecure

your a smart person and like to plan things down to every detail, things must of seemed well on your journey or else you would of stopped, wouldn’t you?

was there a voice or something telling you to slow down? what was it that compelled you to keep swimming into the distance closer to what you thought was? what exactly?

I know you better than you know, this is unlike you, whatever it was it in sometime took over all logical thinking, thus you ignored all warning signs.

maybe your over reacting and what you came for is right around the corner not close but not distant, should you float and recharge? or turn around and head in another direction, that would be easy if you could see, in every direction you see nothing a neverending pit, all elements in this equation are against you, thats how your feeling I can tell by the way you sparked up that ciggerette

when you have put yourself out there expecting for something to grab hold of your hand, don’t be foolish expect the worse but be brave and walk forth, don’t make hasteful decisions either because you may be surpised even when all the chips are down, go to your place, your safe place, do not sit, push this energy out, focus on other things, keep your mind busy but aware.

swimming or standing in a unfamiliar place, remember what your capable of, gather your energy for the path ahead is rough. if your like me and swan out way beyond my ability.

this doesn’t really make sense to you, you’ve only just stopped swimming, so your thoughts are muddled and your panicing, remember to float, regroup and push forward if it be in the same direction or another path.

if you survive this, you will be stronger. you thought you had already completed your journey that was your train of thought wasn’t it, thats why you kept swimming.

you believe in something that has been long forgotten by others. perhaps, I’m not sure, just like you my friend.

float for a while the conditions may change, what your lookig for may be swimming near by or floating, you never know. it’s your call. I’ve said all I can say. you havn’t been the person you were when you first entered the water, find him only then will you handle these conditions
