This article focuses on matters related to the author's decision to quit swimming. The author has been considering swimming until 2008 and his next goal was the World Championship this summer. He had dreams and goals beyond swimming and now for the first time in his life, he felt the same passion and motivation for those things that he used to feel for his swimming. He always knew that he would take all the values, skills and life lessons that he had learned in swimming and apply them to whatever he had decided to do with the rest of his life. He never thought swimming would be his job, though the last few years have been a gift.
