Keep Swimming

Sometimes things feel worse than they are. Sometimes a shadow in the night ends up being something silly.

Sometimes you feel like youโ€™re drowning in an ocean...but itโ€™s just a wave. I heard a song the other day with a lyric similar to this and it made me stop and listen (I love when that happens. Go music ๐Ÿ’ช) and itโ€™s been my fightinโ€™ words to myself ever since.

Iโ€™ll be honest. I feel like Iโ€™m drowning in an ocean right now. My lungs are filled with salt water and Iโ€™m choking and sputtering and I canโ€™t seem to come up for air no matter how hard I try...but I know itโ€™s not the truth. I know itโ€™s a wave and soon Iโ€™ll be able to breathe in fresh clean air and cleanse my soul again.

If you feel like you are drowning in an ocean try and remind yourself that this isnโ€™t an ocean, itโ€™s a wave. Yes, itโ€™s rolling over you, tossing you around, disorienting you and pushing you towards the ocean floor where you are scraping your body on broken shells and gritty sand but you will soon be pushed back up to the surface, emerge through the white foamy surf and finally take that deep cleansing breath of air you have been fighting for. You will be a little beat up. You will be a little bruised but you will be ok again. Itโ€™s just a wave.
