My friend said to me the other day you have 2 choices -
'Fear or Love'
Always choose Love
This morning, I decided to get up and go for a swim, I always have my bag packed so I just grabbed it and went. I didn't check the timetable assuming it would be open but it was closed when I arrived. The Receptionist checked the nearby Sports park, the outdoor Lido and the pool in Woking - all closed until 9.30am.
I did feel disappointed and this soon became frustration and then annoyance, how dare they not be open for my impromptu early morning swim. However whilst these thoughts crept in I kept thinking 'choose love, choose love, choose love'. So rather than becoming these thoughts I just observed them being there. I said a big thank you to the Receptionist and sent out love from my heart to him instead (he didn't know this, that could have been a bit weird). It felt good and I walked out happy that I was feeling this way.
I'm heading off again for my swim at 9.30am and then up to York. This trip has become my monthly bolt hole, I enjoy the drive it's peaceful, I can send out love to any traffic jams.
