Change is Hard

This morning while swimming laps, I thought about something I've learned in yoga. It is important to have balance in the body. What I do on one side, I must also do on the other. So I realized that I have always swam the American Crawl turning to my right side to breath thus there is an imbalance in my neck. So I decided I needed to change and take turns turning in both directions. What is usually so effortless for me became difficult. I had a hard time breathing and I kind of got this little panic feeling. Crazy how such a little change can be so hard. At least I know that the more I do it, the easier it will get. That is, if I don't drown first. I am committed to continually changing to get better. Change is hard but I can do hard things.
