Love it Helen, I do know what you mean about being in the water, it makes you feel connected. Good for you getting in the sea even though you had to walk over the stones, that’s hard to do on the feet but so worth it

Great analogy.

I remember summers by the seaside in Porthcawl where I dipped my toes into the sea and thought: “Bloody hell! That’s cold!”

As the cold water lapped around my ankles, legs and waist as I got in deeper and deeper, there came a point where I just had to take the plunge.

And when I did, that was it! It was brilliant, and didn’t seem at all cold…

I love the analogy here Helen. If you want to do something, sometimes you just have to jump in because you know it will be worth it. :-)

Great analogy.

Seems that once we “get in the pool” finally…we ask ourselves why it took so look to just plunge

If you want to swim, you got to get in the water. The difference between the pool and the sea is you got to cross the rocks and the sand to get to the water. Sometimes life is nice and smooth and other times is rocky but wading in the water is not swimming. Either way you got to dive in.
