Learning to Swim at 40+ years old!

#facingmytruefears

I've decided to face a fear that has been plaguing me since early childhood. It's funny because I love going to the pool and the beach but do not know how to swim. For years I've been enjoying myself at the pool or beach waist deep ONLY due to the fear of the water overtaking me. I have never experienced an almost drowning situation however I have heard of horror stories around people drowning. Twelve years ago I enrolled in an adult swimming lessons class and after 2 lessons I was advised to try again at a later date once I've dealt with my fear of the water. Well, 12 years later.... I'm currently enrolled in another course...

Ok...yall it's been rough, tough or whatever you want to call it but.....but... I'm not giving up. This video is proof that if you face it, stick with it, don't compare yourself, even if you have to cry, scream, yell go back at it. Keep in mind I was terrified of submerging my entire body under water, I was totally afraid of getting my face wet, I sincerely refused to trust anyone to guide me when it came to anything remotely close to floating. I'm proud to share my journey thus far. Celebrating my milestone.
