Are You Swimming Upstream?
Imagine for a minute swimming upstream! Can you do it? Can you see yourself swimming upstream easily, effortlessly, enjoying the experience? OK, maybe I didn’t provide enough information. It is a beautiful summers day, you are with a group of dear friends down by the rivers edge, picnic packed, ready to have a great day. Once everyone settles in you and some of the group decide to take a dip in the river. The water is the perfect temperature. Your swimming skills are excellent. You get into the water and begin swimming upstream, against the current. The harder you try to make progress upstream the more you stay in one place. Even with a little bit more information you still would not have an amazing swim going upstream would you? If you are like me no you would not.
You may even be thinking I am rather crazy to suggest on a beautiful summers day out with friends that you would even want to go swimming upstream. If you are anything like me you may want to float easily, effortlessly allowing the water to take you all the while enjoying the refreshing water, and your friends company.
