Find A Way! Diana Nyad's mantra works for me as well

Thursday, October 03, 2013

As Diana Nyad swam from the Hemingway Marina in Havana, Cuba to the Key West shore, her mantra after numerous failed attempts before was "Find a Way!" And I recently found it worked for me, too. While on a juicing reboot that was working for me, my Breville juicer suddenly gave in after constant use for more than six months. At the same time, I had purchased a downloadable antivirus program to protect my laptop. I couldn't get it loaded.

After being offered a computer fix for $200, I went to Staples for a free PC tuneup. It turned out that the problem was easy to solve, although the entire process took about 2.5 hours, mostly for the tune-up. I learned a lot from the experience and applied it immediately afterward. "Find a way!" helped me to find the answers I needed without needlessly buying expensive services I didn't need. (The company charging $200 said there was something seriously wrong with my computer. There wasn't.)

I have been using "Find a way!" for sometime when I found the usual ways of losing weight were not working for me at all, no matter what I tried. I kept searching for answers until I found what worked for me. One approach that worked for me was green juicing. My juicer broke and the new one my husband ordered arrives tomorrow. I am counting down the hours until I have that new Breville juicer in my kitchen and plan to get the old one repaired as a back up. My day isn't the same without green juice and also the carrot juice that my husband and I both love.

"Find a way" helps with exercise, too, including when I had a knee injury and had to make big changes in my workout program. Even if I had to start back with walking and a walking dvd, it was worth trying. It worked, and I am healing more by the day. I've used "Find a way" with other challenges as well.

Find a way. It is a really good mantra. It helped Diana Nyad to make yet another attempt to swim from Cuba to Key West, the last time being a world record. And "find a way!" is a good mantra for me, too.

And what happened to her afterwards with all those who would like to say she failed somehow makes me sick!
