There was a year when I conquered many fears,
many dislikes, many unknowns, many "i have never".
One of them was diving into the cold lake water above.
Face first, without my usual testing and easing,
slowly inching myself in.
This may seem like a silly thing to most,
but I had spent my entire life up till that point
never having dove into a lake.
This photo made me think today
that I might need to challenge myself a little more this year.
As my new year is coming up,
I will look out for new lakes to dive into.
