Well we haven’t moved much by wind power in the past few days but I guess I shouldn’t complain as the weather has been beautiful. Blue skies every day. Apart from Alyssa getting heat stroke and a sunburn the first day we are doing well.
As I looked out today over the smooth surface of the lake like ocean I couldn’t help but realize that we are ACTUALLY living out our dream. Until now I have just been putting one foot in front of the other with such determination and zealousness that I have not actually stopped to think about what we are accomplishing. We set a goal to do this trip over 10 years ago and we are finally doing it. I have my favorite people on board the ship with me and we are enjoying one another’s company, passing the days away as we sail to the Pacific. I can hardly believe we are living out our dream!
Today Alyssa was teaching Eli and Teyauna how to make friendship bracelets, Jaeden, Orin and Dailin were lounging around reading books and Kirsten was relaxing at the helm. Eli had both Kirsten and I reading to him for at least two hours today. Jaeden even had Kirsten and Dailin doing some exercises out on the front trampoline.
Zakary was excited every time he could go to his water bucket or crawl around the deck with his harness on. It is simple, beautiful and absolute heaven.
The lesson here is if you have a dream write it down. If you want to accomplish your dreams move forward confidently knowing they are possible and they will come true.
