That Which Keeps me Afloat Prevents Me From Learning To Swim

So lately I've been a major phase of transformation...Making various changes and coming to certain realizations. I had a rather symbolic dream relating to this, and am considering creating a work of art based on it.

In the dream I was in a contraption similar to the kid in this picture. I had both an inner tube and waterwings, and was trying to swim forward. Progress was slow though, and it occured to me I might be able to swim a bit more freely and naturally, and successfully if I didn't have the "extra help" of the floatation devices.

When I woke up it seemed pretty obvious-- I need to "learn to swim" on my own...we will see how it goes...
