What We Can Learn From Winter (and I’m not writing about the season)!

Have you ever seen the 2011 movie Dolphin Tale?  Or its sequel Dolphin Tale 2 which came out in 2014?  The movies chronicle the life of a dolphin named Winter who was maimed by being caught in a crab trap and thusly, lost her tail.  I have seen the movies before, but I find that I always enjoy them as their universally inspirational message rings clearly to me.

We are here to work through our trials and tribulations and we are also here to inspire others.

We can be hurt, heartbroken, maimed and feel as if we can’t survive, but with help from those around us, even perhaps strangers, we can find the will to go on.  As we heal, we can choose to live our lives as an example of what the human or ‘ahem’ dolphin spirit can achieve with love.

I recently visited Winter’s site click here!  I learned that beginning Monday February 1st, a real-life follow up show series called Rescue-Clearwater will premiere online documenting the work at Clearwater Marine Aquarium.  Each episode will be released at the beginning of the month and be 30 minutes in length.  What a great way to catch up with Winter’s progress!

I highly recommend clicking on their website.  There’s even a real-time webcam to watch Winter and Hope and all the rest of the animals.  What fun to watch Winter as she swims and how inspiring to see her!  Don’t you just love a great feel good story?  I know I do!  Open your heartlight and let it shine!

Have you ever been to Clearwater to see Winter?  Please share below!

Shine On!

  2. I LOVED this movie and for a time watched Winter on their live cam 🙂 Truly an inspirational story proving we can learn from all forms of life on this planet.

  3. I didn’t see the movies since I don’t watch many. I’ll check out the website though. Thank you. Adversity is part of life. How we handle it and help others through it is the challenge. Thanks for sharing.

  4. I have not seen the movies but have wanted to. I know a blogger who saw the first movie and then took his son to see Winter in person and said it was quite the experience! I will have to watch the movies now for sure! Thanks!
