Either you swim or you die

Life Journal 50
Some species of sharks need to keep swimming in order to survive; they swim very fast to force water (and thus oxygen) into their systems and breathe. If they stop swimming, they can't breathe and, sadly, they die. That's why a lot of people use this shark analogy and apply it into their lives; you have to keep moving, keep fighting, otherwise you die.

I took a small break from this blog and social media because something really awful happened to me last week (if you wanna know more, click this link) and no matter how scared or paralysed I think I am, that's not an excuse to stop everything I like about my life. One bad thing isn't enough to destroy a mountain of good things I have going on for me. That's why, from now on, I have to think like a shark and keep moving, keep breathing, keep living.

// Algunas especies de tiburones necesitan nadar para poder sobrevivir; nadan muy rápido para forzar agua (y oxígeno) en sus sistemas y respirar. Si dejan de nadar, no pueden respirar y, desgraciadamente, mueren. Es por eso que mucha gente usa esta analogía de tiburones y la aplica en sus vidas; hay que seguir en movimiento, seguir luchando, de lo contrario morimos.

Me tomé un pequeño break del blog y redes sociales porque algo muy feo me pasó la semana pasada (si quieren saber más de eso, hagan click aquí) y no importa qué tan asustado o paralizado me sienta, eso no es excusa para dejar de hacer todo lo que me gusta de mi vida. Una cosa mala no es suficiente para destruir una montaña de cosas buenas que me suceden. Es por eso que, a partir de ahora, tengo que pensar como un tiburón y seguir en movimiento, seguir respirando, seguir viviendo.
Love always,
Henry.
