EVERY DESTINATION STARTS
WITH A THOUGHT
It's almost scary when you realize that every destination starts
with a thought.
Every positive dream that I have ever had started out with a
single thought. When I saw the National Geographic article
that featured the voyage of Robin Lee Graham sailing around the
world on Dove, an idea was planted in my mind, and it determined
the course of my life. I knew that someday I would sail
around the world on my own yacht.
Every thought that I think is a seed that grows into my life as
long as I water and nurture it after it springs to life. I
can go anywhere I want as long as I am willing to think the
thoughts that take me there.
We ended up cruising among the islands of Thailand because we
thought those islands into our life. When we were in
Australia, we had to decide whether we would sail to Christmas
Island and across the Indian Ocean, or if we would sail through
Indonesia, Borneo, Singapore, Malaysia, and Thailand before we
crossed the Indian Ocean. That single decision to sail north
changed our destiny.
Because our thoughts took us north, we visited exotic Bali and remote
Borneo. We communed with the Orangutans of Kalimantan and
dodged fishing nets at night in the Java Sea. We experienced
the thunderstorms of the Singapore monsoon while five of our
fellow cruisers had their yachts struck by lightning in the same
area within a period of one week. We visited stilt villages
over the water along the Malaysian coast. We snorkeled in
caves at the base of limestone cliffs. We even survived a
global tsunami in Thailand without a scratch.
All of those things happened because of the thought:: "Lets head
north and visit Thailand."
You have to be careful about the thoughts you think, because they
determine the outcome of your life. Your thoughts determine
whether you live your nightmares or your dreams.
Right now, I'm thinking new thoughts about the adventures that I
want to have during the remainder of my life. I'm working on
a bunch of new dreams, and my dilemma is that I have too many
dreams and not enough time.
Since every destination starts with a thought, it's time to select
some new thoughts and build my life around them. How does a
driving trip around the world in a Land Rover Defender sound?
A sailing voyage across the Pacific to Australia sounds pretty
good as well.
What kind of thoughts are you thinking, and where are those
thoughts taking you? Why don't you think a sailing voyage
into your life?

photo just before we got into our dingy and headed off to snorkel
in a cave at the base of the limestone cliffs. We ended up
at this destination because our first mate, Donna, said this
sounded like an interesting destination. Thanks for thinking
that thought Donna. The underwater cave was an awesome
