Hello from the air!
I’ll publish this post as soon as I land and get WiFi again. Until then, I’ll be typing away above the clouds.
Speaking of clouds, I took this really sweet pictures a few minutes ago of the clouds outside of the window. Reminded me of the Rockies and ski season. Which made me think of home. Which made me think of how I’m traveling alone.
I haven’t traveled alone since I was about ten, and it was an hour flight to Tucson to see my Grandparents. This time, I am flying across the country and there is no one waiting at the airport to pick me up. I’ll be taking a taxi to my friends place in NYC (because well, duh, it’s New York) and I’m a little bit nervous!
I’m not sure why I am nervous to fly alone—flying has never scared me. I think I’m more nervous trying to find my way without any one to fall back on. I think it’s just a change and I’m a creature of habit.
We all have our weaknesses. I’m working on it.
I’m sure that once I get to Kathryn’s place I will be fine, it’s just a little overwhelming trying to navigate such a big city alone…. But, this little adversity is so small in comparison to the grand scheme of life. I’m not meaning to sound whiney!
Tonight we are planning on going out to dinner, and tomorrow it will just be the city and me while Kathryn is at work!
Here’s to an adventure that doesn’t have to do with health and fitness—but with growing as a person and doing what’s good for my soul.
Sometimes doing what you’re most afraid of doing is the very thing that will set you free
Oh by the way I sat next to two frat-tastic bros on the plane and eavesdropped while they talked about their summer house in the Hamptons. Then one of them spilled salsa all over their shirt. and I laughed. out loud. whoops.
Then we kind of became friends and talked about taxi’s and ya know, New Yorker stuff 😉 haha!
Oh… and I thought this was hilarious, too.
No bumping your boom box, driving your RC cars around or playing on walky talkies while on the planes. DANG IT.
Catch ya later!
