Swimming with friends is a leisure, you get to enjoy the time with them – have conversations and a good laugh. And if you are big on games then you can enjoy your swimming time like your time in pool. Go ahead find the time with your buddies.
When the sun sets, the night approaches and the wind is giving you a chilling effect – the thought of swimming shivers you down. It is tough to imagine to dip your toes in the cold water, let alone swim.
But let the magic of friends cheer you up. When your friends show up, the temptation is higher than the fear of cold. You give in and go with the flow. Slowly and steadily you approach the water, imagine the dread and jump in. You realize an unique effect – your body gets used to the cold water after some time. And if you are with your friends, it happens much quicker.
All of this is cool and trendy, maybe you look forward for your friends party. But when happens when they don’t call you.
When no one comes by your side, it is difficult to feel motivated to move. Getting out of bed, exercising or doing a simple project seems like an uphill task. And the truth is maybe it is difficult and that’s the only way.
Is going along with bunch of friends fun and nice? Hell yes. But sometimes you need to embrace the fact that it is okay to go alone.
Not because you are some weirdo and no one wants to go with you. Rather because you have some priorities in life and you will do them regardless if someone joins them or not. Let’s say travel for example, maybe you want to explore the ships. And none of your friends want to go to ship. So now what do you do?
One way is to keep convincing your friends to tag along. And another is to do it anyway. Because it is something you want and you deserve this.
Do It Anyway
If you say something is passion for you then chances are you will do it regardless. For me writing, dancing is a passion. So if no one reads my stories or watches my dance, I will still write and make videos. Not because I am crazy. Partly I am, but because it gives me happiness and keeps my creative mind in shape.
Am I happy that few people find my work appealing to join me? I am honoured.
But I didin’t start with thousands alongside me, I started when no one was with me. I did it because I wanted to.
So go ahead and do it anyway. If you want to make it something big then try. But if you call it passion, then do it anyway.
