On my way to the river I was stopped in my tracks by something moving in the sand. I thought it was a crab at first glance but when I got closer it turned out to be a baby sea turtle on it’s journey to the ocean. It’s low tide right now so the beach is really long, and the baby was about half-way when I crossed it’s path. I stayed with it the rest of the way until it finally made its way into the waves. I was, and still am, feeling incredibly inspired and in awe of this tiny creature.
The life they live!
The obstacles they face!
How resilient they are!
It is absolutely mind blowing... and I just feel so blessed to watch these creatures on their first day of their lives begin their journey into the vast world of the ocean. They are fearless, these little sea turtles. They have full confidence in themselves and their journey. They have so many obstacles to overcome but the reward is so worth it — an entire ocean to explore. The whole universe at their flipper tips.
I’d say we have quite a few things to learn from our friends, ancestors, brothers, and sisters the sea turtle! Most of all, that no matter how many obstacles life might present to us, no matter how hard things may seem... if we face life head-on, with our innate wisdom and trust on our side, we can make it through a n y t h i n g. I’m sure that if these little new born turtles can do it, I can do it, you can do it, WE CAN DO IT.
And the reward? The most vast, beautiful, and inspiring gift of all — an infinite universe of possibilities.
