Thank you so much for everything! But, saying something as simple as that doesn’t really begin to cut it. You have given me such a gift. Since our last lesson, one week ago today, I have gone swimming every opportunity I have had (including Wednesday after work and Sunday morning). I am swimming laps, playing with my float and exploring my balance and how my body operates under the water. I am challenging myself with new tasks each day and thanks to you, I feel confident and safe while doing so. Every day gets better and better and better and better! Know that I am taking my time (in for the long haul with this one!), but here are the words I haven’t said for over two decades: I’m a swimmer!
It has been so exciting to swim with my husband and I have to tell you, words can’t describe what it was like seeing the look in his eyes when I made it from one end of the pool to the other by myself. My body already feels better and I can’t wait to use it as a fitness tool. After swimming in a public pool for the first time without you right there . . . I decided to share my story and post a 15-second video of my freestyle stroke on Facebook. It was a big move for me personally to publicly “come out” as someone who couldn’t swim before I met you and people really connected to it. I received over 200 “likes” and 60+ comments in one day! It amazes me how many people share my same fears and after working with you, I have been telling everyone I know about it in hopes that my story may inspire others to achieve the breakthrough that I accomplished!
You are truly a inspiration and my life will never be the same again!
