Fight for your dreams
On Labor Day, Diana Nyad showed the world what it meant to have a dream. To believe in that dream. To do whatever it takes to achieve that dream. On Labor Day, Diana Nyad became the first swimmer to cross the Florida Straits without a shark cage. It was her fifth attempt at the crossing in 35 years.
Nyad should serve as an inspiration to us all. We all have dreams that we work to accomplish. Some dreams are harder to achieve than others, but they all deserve a chance to become reality. My dreams vary from finding ways to help others, to writing a novel, to creating a great life for my loved ones.
I know every dream, every goal I have will take work. I know they will all face some sort of opposition but if I’m patient, and I give it time, I’m sure I’ll make it. It took Nyad five times to reach the shores of Key West. She was deterred by weather, jellyfish and even the ocean’s currents on her previous attempts. But it only takes one moment, or in her case a series of 53 hours worth of moments, and lots of perseverance to succeed.
