Kind of lost myself for a little bit there.
I think I was drowning myself to help and support other people.
It doesn’t work.
Non- swimmers do not make good lifeguards.
So, for now, I have halved my working hours in the hope that I will have time for me and time for others in equal measure.
After all when you first learn to swim, no one starts at the deep end.
I saw a quote today and thought it was quite apt;
“There’s no need to be perfect to inspire others. Let people get inspired by how you deal with your imperfections”
So that is exactly what I am going to aim to do.
I am going to take time to learn to swim.
I need to learn to accept support and guidance from other people.
I need to learn to focus on me.
and I need to start from the shallow end.
I will get there.
