Originally, I wanted to write a story that reflected, I had control of the situation. It seemed more like a delusional story. Instead, this metaphor resonates more clearly to me about life. We have control, but we also have to live with the life that happens around us.
So often I feel like I am standing at the edge of a pool watching. I’ll see someone or something of interest, slide into the silky water, my focus on what caught my eye. At some point, the water gets rough, the currents push me around, the water is colder than I thought… I turn my head to see how far I am from the edge of the pool, should I go back?
There is no edge of the pool, I am in the middle of the ocean! What do I do?!
Eventually, that scene that caught my eye will materialize within reach and I know I will be overjoyed that I persevered.
In the mean time, my heart swims on.
