Learning from the journey

January 29, 2016

The boat and I are months away from leaving the dock but the mental composure to keep going, to push on, to keeping trying, to problem solve, to believe and to make things happen has already started.

Ideas are delicate things and moving them from vision to reality is no easy task. Ideas need time to grow and take hold; they need to withstand the elements, sway and pitch in the wind, shine brightly on the good days, stand strong on the darker ones, glow with luminosity and yet sit humbly in their own presence. It’s an initiation ceremony of sorts, difficult and challenging at the time, life changing and redemptive when the road clears and it’s time to head out into the world for real.

Believing in something is a very powerful thing. You can watch it climb to new heights, sense the excitement when it captures someone else’s imagination and then almost by magic starts to grow within them — new shoots, insights and introspections that breath life into what you have already created yourself. It can be hard to watch it wilt on occasion too, but like a winter frost, sometimes a blast of cold air is what we all need — strengthening our resolve, helping us build newer and stronger connections to the things we believe in.

This One Wild Ride journey has been all these things, and so many more already, and I’m the better for it.
