SOE257: Stop Drowning

Day 257 of 365 Snippets of Encouragement – A One Year Project conceived by Angela Barnard.

Paulo Coelho says, “You drown not by falling into the river, but by staying submerged in it.” From my real life experience with drowning, I can say this is true. I didn’t nearly drown because I was in the pool or fell into the rapids, I almost drowned because I remain submerged.

There are times when you feel overwhelmed by life as if you’re drowning. You’re not drowning because you’re in that situation, you’re drowning because you’re submerged in it. Stop drowning and emerge from that overwhelming situation. It’s more likely the exit strategy needs to be radically different from how you landed in that circumstance and may even be painful, but as long as you remain submerged you will continue to drown.
