A Sea Turtle Changed My Way of Thinking …

I went to the Shedd Aquarium today. I met a turtle – a sea turtle named Nickel who changed my way of thinking in life and life itself. I have been having troubles walking a lot because of vertigo spells but not particularly vertigo, I used a walker, and I walked and walked all day not giving up like Nickel who was a survivor of a bad injury and her name came about because the vet found a 1975 nickel in her throat when they received her. What made me rethink about my afflictions and my abilities of what i still can do. I have cried for hours after getting home from the Shedd Aquarium, too. Even writing about my meeting Nickel has brought a mist to my eyes. I want to go back to the Shedd Aquarium again.
