Ohmaygawd! I still couldn’t believe that I am done with my 5th and last session. It was December 7, 2018 when I booked my final swimming class. I honestly didn’t know what to feel that time. Part of me was happy because I made it, but I also felt sad because I got used to going on my classes every weekend, and attending my lesson was really fun.
During my last swimming class, I did nothing but practice freestyle. It was still hard for me but Coach Griin told me that the said skill cannot be learned in just 1 or 2 days. Practice makes perfect. What’s important is that I am improving, and little by little, I am able to do right what I am supposed to do.
Swimming is fun. It helped me not just forget my problems, but it also changed the way I look at life. Meeting people who also had the same reason as mine on why they enrolled in swimming class made me realize that I was not alone in my journey of finding happiness in life. Happiness that cannot just be found from other people around you, but happiness that comes from within you. Learning new skill helped me appreciate myself more. That’s why for those of you who are going through something, always remember that there are a lot of things that may change your outlook in life, there is still hope. Focus on your self improvement. Try new skill. Meet new people. Love yourself first, and the rest will follow.
