A few years ago, in a pool, two of my younger brothers an I almost drowned each other in the middle of the deep end. I learned a lot about myself that day. At first I was thinking about saving myself. Then when I realized my brothers were in trouble, I dove down, touching my feet to the bottom, and pushed them up for air. My lungs hurt so bad, I started breathing in the water. Shockingly, the water didn’t hurt to breath in. Haha. On the bottom of the pool saving my brothers, I was not worried about killing myself down there. I just wanted to get them out. I would have continued to stand there, but then I heard a voice in my head. It told me to walk over to the edge. I started marching over to the edge, where my brothers were able to to climb out and pull me out. The air in my lungs felt soooo good! They had to help me into the house, because I felt very weak, but we were all okay.
That day, I learned that I am able to think clearly in an emergency situation. Which is a skill I am extremely happy to have! I don’t think I was able to think like that a few years before that incident, but now I can, thank God.
Speaking of God, I definitely think it was his voice I heard telling me to take them to the edge. I was working on very little oxygen, so I needed guidance for sure!
