Last Friday we watched the documentary movie of the sailing Dutch girl Laura Dekker, ‘Maidentrip’. In 2009, when she is 13 years old, she decides to sail around the world on her own. She’ll be the youngest solo sailor doing so. After one year of encountering opposition of Dutch governmental organizations (Laura was almost taken away from her father and placed under supervision by Youth Care Organizations – they even had to take it to court to get the final permission), she sets off to sail the world at the age of 14. What an unbelievably independent girl this is. Again illustrating that there’s different ways to live your life. Whether you are 14, 44 or 65 years of age, you can always choose which way you want to go. Do you want your way to be challenging or comforting? What do you value most in your life? What are your top priorities (and how are they reflected in the life that you lead)? Are you in charge of your life or are you on a ‘production line’, automatically doing the things and actions you think life expects from you? This well-known quote applies: ‘If you always do what you always did, you’ll always get what you always got.’ So if you want a change: loose the fears, listen to your heart and take the action. Laura sure did.
