When thinking of Yourself....
Remember, for a baby Sea Turtle, their odyssey is a miraculous one.
A hatchling thrashes his way out of his eggshell, while under two feet of beach sand. Then struggles for days with his siblings, to dig towards the surface, then bursts out frantically, hoping he’ll make it across an open beach, full of predators. As he dodges sea gulls, ghost crabs, foxes, human pitfalls, trash, and erosion, etc, he asserts all of his might towards the surging waves.
After several attempts to catch an under-current, he is tumbled back up onto the beach, as he tries again, he is finally swept out under pounding breakers, and is now on his first swim! For at least twenty miles, the little turtle must continue to stroke, before resting onto a refuge of floating sargasso weed.
So consider such a mighty challenge at birth, when you feel like giving up. Persevere!
