This blog is dedicated to the “undecided”. All the millions of people around the world that have been thinking about doing something….something they would love to do, something that they have always wanted to do, something they dream about, something that will make their life complete…but still haven’t done it.
In telling people of my decision to move to Santorini there were some fascinating responses. People I had known for years suddenly opened up with their own dreams, stories, desires and regrets. “I’ve always wanted to…” was the common theme. I realised that almost everyone has an “I’ve always wanted to..” thought that they haven’t acted upon. Many mind-travel, many are tortured from the dreaded “shoulds” (should’ve done this or that). Each has his/her own story…. and it all came pouring out.
In the words of my old friend Rex Lopez “when it’s all said and done Michael….it’s only the great adventures you remember”. I don’t think anyone has ever given me better advice in my entire life.
It doesn’t really matter what it is. A house on an island, a desert, another city or another country. An adventure, a reunion, an event, a concert of an artist you’ve admired, a painting you’ve never seen but always wanted to, a walk in a street of a city, a mountain to climb, a place to see…….
Life is not a dress rehearsal…..
Make the decision…. fulfil your dream!

If you have an “I’ve always wanted to….” story…please share it here. It may help others to decide, but most of all, it may help YOU!
