Coming Up For Air
Sometimes we're so busy, our heads down, focused solely on the task or tasks in hand, that we forget to look up. Like people learning to snorkle dive in the sea, paddling furiously, breathing heavily as we try to balance ourselves between the world above water and the world below, whilst trying to keep ourselves afloat. Exhausting ourselves; wearing ourselves out.
So, when we do finally lift our heads, we are surprised at how far we've come, how far away from the the safety of the shore we have taken ourselves. And what little time we have allowed ourselves to recover, just float and then gently paddle back - before we need to set off once again, heads down, vision blurred and sucking precious air down the snorkle tube for dear life.
Each time taking ourselves that little bit further out, and further away from the beach.
#LookUp before it's too late.
