So often in our heads we think we need to be brave or confident before we can take action – I need to be more confident before I ask that person out on a date; I need to be brave/confident before I go for my dream job or start a business; I need to be brave before I can speak out on these controversial topics.
If we think like this we start looking for answers outside ourselves, we start looking for what can make us brave or more confident.
Like, a new lipstick will make me feel confident. More research and experience will make me feel brave and so on.
So my fiance Mark only went and self-published an e-book on our experience sailing around the coast of Great Britain earlier this year.
It’s titled – A Voyage Around Britain in a small Yacht: A true and honest log of two everyday people sailing around the UK.
I’m incredibly excited and proud!
Of course I’m biased but even with my former magazine editor hat on I can say it’s a great little read (even if there is the odd typo).
When we first announced we were going to sail around Great Britain, I was surprised that quite a few people said to me they, or someone they knew, had always dreamed of doing that but they didn’t know how to approach it or they were worried about certain aspects, like sailing around Cape Wrath.
