Next Level

Today is the day. After 6 months, today is finally the big day. I started off eating a MegaNut bar, A Very Berry smoothie, and roast chicken. I was determined today. Determined to get to the next level. I’ve been practising swimming for the past 3 weeks every day. And today, it paid off. When I went in class today, the second I touched the water, I felt the urge. The urge to do it right. As if a voice in my head was saying “Do it right!”. And then I realised that I can. I did my best. And I had a streak going until I made a mistake. Loosening my goggles. My lens filled up with water. But now, I couldn’t let anything stop me. And then, at the end of the class, at the end of everything, I learnt something. It all paid off.
