Once again, Oprah has inspired me.
“Started out the week taking swimming lessons. Moving beyond my amateur doggy paddle. Learned the breast stroke today.
Over a year ago I pulled a picture from O mag of a woman gliding through water. It was such a striking image of freedom and possibility I put it on my vision board (which I’ve still not completed). Today when I finished my swimming lesson I passed the vision board lying on the table where it’s been since 2009. I had an aha moment. I had just become that woman, gliding through the water!
This I’ve known forever is the great metaphor of life. Move with the flow. Don’t fight the current. Resist nothing. Let life carry you. Don’t try to carry it. Sometimes we just have to be reminded. A swim lesson did it for me.”
Starting my vision board today. Thanks, Oprah.
