If you’ve read Part 1 of my Mexico adventure, you might remember that I’m a bit of a wuss when it comes to creatures of the sea. Well a week into our trip we were heading to an area near Holbox early in the morning to go and swim with Whale Sharks in the deep blue sea. Only two days before this I was acting like a complete ninny because a fish the size of my hand was brushing past my leg so this was a B.I.G deal.
I remember that I had mixed feelings as we bumped over the waves on the speedboat. One part of me was charged with excitement and the other half of me was absolutely terrified. If it wasn’t for Sarah, I’m honestly not sure I would have went through with it so I’m glad she gave me that little nudge that I needed.
I did it! There’s no photographic evidence of me having a cup of tea with them but it’s all up in my little noggin…or well, it’s a vague memory due to being so overwhelmed at the time. It’s hard to describe how it feels to be beside something quite so majestic. I was scared and that feeling didn’t disappear but I was really proud of myself for facing something that really challenged me. As for Sarah, she could have been swimming with a goldfish she was so unafraid! I admire that :)
If you want to change your life, you must first change your mind.
So yeah, go and swim with whale sharks and tick it off your bucket list :)
