The freedom that I felt as a child, as I sat on the seat and clung on to the chains, and kicked my legs back and forth, making myself go higher and higher.
It was such an intoxicating feeling.
I would kick off my shoes and feel at peace with myself and the universe.
Now if I get on a swing and get insta-motion sickness.
Such a simple pleasure that has had to be erased.
Anyone who has swing nearby and has the ability to accomplish the task - don't take it for granted. Make sure to swing away some of your stress now and then. Let me live vicariously through you!
