Five Minute Friday: JUMP
JUMP! I'm on a diving board high above the deep end of the swimming pool. It's scary...I've never dived in from the board before. But I do love having that weightless feeling when i'm floating in the pool. So maybe i'll be okay if I take a deep breath and just fall in.
I did it! I was somewhere in my mid-30s and for the first time I trusted in my own ability to deal with being in deep water. My feet touched the bottom and then I began to rise back to the top. It was a lot of fun and I enjoyed floating back up with no fear to ruin the experience.
I'm grown up and I can jump into anything I choose. Now at 60 years of age and closer to the end than the beginning, without hesitation I can say, I would never go back to childhood. I like the freedom and the floating of being old.
