So, I never thought I could say this but… I can swim! Yep, I took some lessons and I’m proud to say I have successfully learnt to swim. I was not afraid of the water per se just the thought of not having my feet touch the ground scared me.
This has been something that I have wanted to do for a long time, and it only took 3hours in total, 6 half an hour lessons..
Its amazing what we can do when we feel the fear but do it anyway! The first lesson went great because i had not been professionally taught before so i went in with an open mind, DH had tried to teach me before without success, he is no professional.. Almost drowned me a few times 😦
The the second lesson was not so great. I was even more nervous that the previous time, was going through some personal stuff and had a big setback. On the third lesson things were back to normal and I saw some progress and by the 5th lesson I was being taught to swim lying on my back…struggled getting back up a few times, this is going to take some practice.
I am happy with my progress and need to keep up the practice. Its always harder to learn things when you are older.
I must say it feels good. When last did you do something for the fist time?
