Its inside you, waiting to be found.
Before we came away Nicolle said: 'In 1 year I will be a completely different person.'
I told her then, and its right now, and its right for you now, in 1 year or 5 years: You will still be the SAME person.
If you want to be better at being a human, or 'finding' yourself then sit right down where you are right now and learn.
Beacuse sailing for a decade ain't gunna teach you nothing like that.
As Indigo Girls sang:
I sailed my ship of safety
till I sank it, I'm crawling on your shore.
I went to the doctor, I went to the mountains
I looked to the children
, I drank from the fountain
There's more than one answer to these questions
pointing me in crooked line
The less I seek my source for some definitive
The closer I am to fine
Nic is just the same person now. And I am just the same person too. Sailing has changed nothing. If we were a$$holes then, the great Pacific ain't gunna change it.
Go sailing, and you will love it! The Pacific is wonderful! But you will jus be you
Maybe with that knowledge you will find you are actually quite an oK person
and don't really need to 'change'
All the best
