I am not going into the week well rested. Honestly, I think I could sleep for a days and still be exhausted. This weekend has drained me been mentally, physically and emotionally. I know in the future I will be glad I took the time to get my Lifeguard Instructors certification. Over the years I have helped with many Lifeguard courses, but I have never been an official instructor. There were many challenges I had to overcome. From an unexpected save to argumentative students. There are plenty of stories to tell.
I hope I can pull knowledge from each moment of this weekend to be a better instructor. Who knows what path my life will take, you never know what you will need in the future so it is best to take advantage of every opportunity you can. I am thankful to be one step closer to another skill I can add to my resume. Life has taught me you never know will happen, so it is best to be prepared for any and all situations.
Tomorrow will be a little bit easier and I will become a stronger me everyday.
