I was hesitant to take that jump. My swimming coach showed me how to, he walked right into the pool as well to make it look very easy. But I stood there unsure, undecided, scared (I guess) for nearly 45 minutes. None of his reassurances would make me take that jump. Fed up he came out and pushed me into the pool. That I tell you was just the beginning of something I began to enjoy and will cherish for the rest of my life. But soon he regreted pushing me in. I would have jumped some 20 more times after that first jump! He had to wait.
