Do you have any dreams of sailing off to a tropical paradise at some point in your life? Or maybe a dream of a visit to some far off country and spend a good length of time there? No matter what your dream is, now is the time to reinforce your thoughts about that dream. With all the turmoil in our lives today, its easy to give up and lose sight of our dreams. What if you don't even have a dream? Well my friends, dreams are what can motivate you and give you a sense of purpose. Start thinking about things that you have heard about that interest you. It can be simple things or it could be something that may take many years to accomplish. I recently read a great story about a family who decided to build a large boat in there back yard so they could sail away. Friends and family worked for almost 20 years before they launched the boat. Through illness, hardships, and having a bunch of equipment stolen, they accomplished their dream. And now they are sailing! My dream is to sail to New Zealand on a 2 year voyage. My hope was to leave in the next 6-8 years. It may now be 10 years down the road but I still have a very strong desire to make this dream come true. Never give up on your dreams!
