Well, at the very least, I aspire to be a mermaid.

I’ve been known to fear the depths. But my fear of shallow living is, uh, deeper, if not borderline excessive.

My breathing is sometimes shallow when I’m not paying attention to it. Yet I have to admit, when I attempt to dive deep—out of my comfort zone—I hold my breath. On purpose.

Mermaids can breathe underwater. This is my goal. To breathe no matter what.

Either you decide to stay in the shallow end of the pool or you go out in the ocean.
