I MAY BE WANDERING, BUT
I'M NOT LOST
For twenty-eight years, I have lived, traveled, worked, and
cruised outside the USA.
My global adventures have sometimes been a source of confusion to
my family and friends. Some of them have even suggested that
I have wasted large segments of my life. After all, if I had
gone mainstream professionally, I could have been rich - maybe
They are probably right. I could have been rich and famous,
but I also would have been miserable, maybe even depressed,
because I would not have been living my dreams.
I worked as an eye surgeon for eleven years in Saudi Arabia, and
then I went sailing around the world with my family on my small
yacht. When I stopped doing ophthalmology and started living
my cruising dreams, many of my professional friends acted like I
fell off a horse and hit my head. They thought I was
throwing everything away when I moved on to different things.
They had a problem with their vision. They had a form of
inner blindness that prevented them from seeing my dreams.
To them, it looked like I was wandering, even lost.
Well, I have news for all the naysayers, disbelievers, and
critics. Even though I am wandering, I am not lost. I
am on course, and I am exactly where I want to be, because I am
living my dreams.
In one of my books (unpublished) I have a term that I use to
describe a group of clueless people; I call them the Life
Long Disoriented. These folks don't know who they are, and
they don't know where they are going. They are adrift on the ocean
I am not a member of the Life Long Disoriented because I know
exactly who I am. I am Captain Dave, circumnavigator of
planet earth. I am Landroverman, an expert in expeditionary
travel in Land Rover Defenders. I am Dr. Dave, a flying
doctor with the Indian Health Service flying out to Indian
reservations to deliver health care in Arizona. I am also a
speaker, writer, podcaster, webmaster, and photographer.
I also know where I am going. I am traveling in the
direction of my dreams. Wherever my dreams take me, that's
where I will end up. Although it may look like I am
wandering, I definitely am not lost. I have been living my
life on purpose for the past 59 years, and I plan to continue
living the same way.
The truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth is that if
you aren't living your dreams, you are wasting your life. So
go ahead. Live your dreams. You'll be glad that you did.
