You can do it!

A little girl in my swimming lessons last night was saying to me…

‘I cannie do it, I cannie do it!’

I replied to her that ‘cannie‘ isn’t a word, and that she can do it. 

She’s very cute. She came along on the first day, all suited up: nice matching purple costume, swimming cap and goggles.  Looking the part, but not knowing how to swim at all.  She’s 5. She doubts her own ability, but loves attention and tries hard and loves to get praise.

She couldn’t put her face in before I started teaching her, now she’s saying… ‘Look at me! Look at me!!‘ …. before she kicks on her front with her face in.  She can do it, she just needs to beleive in herself, try and practice and she’ll get there.

It’s the same with a lot of things in life.

You can do it, you just need to beleive in yourself, have the courage, determination, dedication and drive and you can do it.  🙂

Here’s a video I’d like to share with you – get the kleenex ready:

    It’s simply amazing. One would thing those are running machines, designed to run, win and little else, but they’re human beings that love every drop of their sweat and every mile they run. They deserve to be at the top. I’ve been certainly touched, Lorn.
