How Not To Drown

One of the most important nuggets of wisdom when you find yourself in over your head and unsure of your ability to swim is not to panic.  Panicking burns energy needed for survival and distracts your mind from seeing a path to safety.  Even though we know this, when we find ourselves in life or death situations staying calm takes work.  Add to the mix a crowd chanting doom and gloom messages and I’d say it’s impossible.  It’s really strange when that crowd was supposed to be in the same boat as you, the one that sank and left you doing the dog paddle.  Somehow they are walking on water and have more time to focus on whose fault it is the boat sank versus how to get to shore.
