I was swimming at Margate in South Coast KZN, South Africa. A rip tide pulled me out. I tried to swim to shore but was running out of breath. So I thought to myself, I had better tread water and wave my arms around.
Two life guards came to my rescue and the trouble was they couldn't get out of the current. So they signaled for a boat to come and fetch us. Never been so far from the shore and so close to death.
I kind of look at life a little differently now not worrying about the silly things. Although I don't know how long that will last. I thought I would have given up smoking after something like that. Still struggling. I have been given a second chance by someone so I better start getting healthy.
