Feel it. In both directions.

floating-swimming

I like swimming against the current,
but only because it makes me feel
I’ve earned the ease and pleasure
of floating back to where I started.

  4. Hmm…so interesting. Just earlier this morning I was thinking about some of the challenges that have been met and overcome in the last few years..and how I appreciate what they have given and taught me. Where I am now because of them. I feel like this kind of matches that thought bubble, so once again DK, your timing is mysteriously impeccable.
