I believe that we all enjoy major milestones in our lives at the appropriate time. Some realize their dreams when they are young and others flourish at an older age. Life as we know is short. Making the most of the years we are granted is a matter of being ourselves.
My love for swimming started at a totally different period of time for me than the majority of the population. I didn't grasp the fulfillment of swimming until I was over 50 and with that being said, swimming has opened up more doors and avenues than I ever imagined - from the fitness end of it to the pure enjoyment of it.
I am a firm believer that if you truly desire to accomplish a goal, that there is nothing in your path that you are incapable of handling. If you take pride in your accomplishments and make the most of every opportunity that comes your way, your time will come. Shake those tail feathers and you will find others who appreciate you because you are willing to take the first step.
