“The use of traveling is to regulate imagination by reality, and instead of thinking how things may be, to see them as they are.” ~ Samuel Johnson
To dream is a splendid thing, but what good is dreaming if you don’t throw all you’ve got to make those dreams a reality? This applies to everything in life (to include travel since this is a travel diary of sorts).
Too often we talk about what we would like to see, do, be but
fail forget to apply action behind it. Talk is just talk, empty words for without ACTing there is no ACTION! Now who wants a life of NO action?
I am often asked about my travels either from the perspective of how I choose one destination over another to how do choose accommodations without ever seeing a place in person.
I can honestly say, 99.99999% of most things in my life that have come to fruition all started with a dream, a vision, or desire of sorts. My borderline Type-A, can do, 100% Capricorn mind takes over from there until voila, my dreams become reality in living color.
“For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move.” Robert Louis Stevenson
So for the sake of it being the first Monday in May of 2015, let’s make today “MAGIC MONDAY” in that you think of, write down, text to yourself, or otherwise find an image of a place you’d love to visit and pretend you have a magic wand to step outside of yourself so you can visually see yourself in that place; the sights, the sounds, what you’re feeling. If you’re serious and completely in the moment of this post, your dedication to dreaming in color then you will be reminded of this post and hopefully encouraged to begin planning for your ‘dream’ destination.
