When I was a little girl, I almost drowned and so I never really learned how to swim. So I have a little bit of a fear. I am not afraid of water or getting into the water. I actually love being in the water and going to the beach and the river, but I am not too keen on the deep end or not knowing or being able to see the bottom. I have learned a lot about my limitations and how to get around those limitations. Like snorkeling in Hawaii, we had floaties which helped me. Plus, the fins really help as well. When we go to the river, I usually go into the water and hold on to the boat or wear a life jacket if I need to.
Someday, I would love to learn to swim to be a capable and confident swimmer. Maybe even someday participate in a full triathlon. I did take adult swimming lessons a couple of years ago and so I do know some of the basics, but I do truly need more lessons to become proficient. This is one of my life goals. I really envy people who can just jump into the water without worrying about how deep the water is or looking for something to hold onto before getting into the water. One day, I will be a capable swimmer.
