Making History – Find a Way
September 4, 2013

I’m sure you have all heard about the historic swim by Diana Nyad. She swam the 110 miles from Cuba to Florida without a shark cage making her the first person to do so. Even more exciting, she just completed this swim after 5 attempts dating back to I believe 1978.

How do people accomplish such feats? How do some and others struggle? Diana’s answer, “Find a way.”

I have been following Diana’s attempts this past year and am so impressed and motivated by her incredible endurance, perseverance, and sheer determination.

What a great reminder to us all when the going gets rough or when the going just gets a little bumpy. Or we become discouraged, lost, or lose hope. Find a way. Find a way. You must find a way. Hold on to this and you will find a way.

Not these exact words necessarily, but certainly this idea, has kept me here through challenges small and large. And you know what? Today seems pretty bright.

Hang in there and find a way. See you out there living life:)
