I always wanted to go to school and become a dentist, like my father, or a surgical nurse.  Being young, I squandered the gift of college, wasting 10 years partying, not even completing an AA degree.  That has depressed me over the years, figuring I was too old to go back and I had ruined my life.  The sadness has grown as well as the depression of it through the years, and I have felt worse about myself.  Seeing the amazing dream (of Diana Nyad) accomplished at the age it was started, has literally opened up my dreams of having a career again.  I realize now and have faith that I can do it.  I am going to attend college in the Spring, complete my AA and will go to nursing school.  NONE of which I would have attempted again without that one incredible act.
