It’s currently 7 in the morning and I’m sitting in the airport attempting to leave NY for the third time since yesterday. We were booked to leave yesterday and spent over 7 hours dealing with change of terminals, airlines , delays and ultimately…a flight cancellation. Sounds like a rant yet? I promise you it’s not. You see, I’m trying to take lessons from each situation I experience—this way, I’m never losing. So initially being the natural negative Nancy I am, I was super annoyed the entire time. Brandon on the other hand was having the time of his life! Lol. And thats when it hit me…
Change your perspective.
Bran and I have always differed in that way. He always chooses to see the bright side to the point where it becomes slightly annoying sometimes, Lol. I mean, there we were waiting around all day and being tossed from terminal to terminal and airline to airline and he’s walking around with the biggest smile on his face. I low key envy him for this! Lol.
I’ll be the first to admit that I’m always preaching about not having control over certain situations which means it’s best to just go with the flow. As much as I wanted yesterday’s outcome to be different, my level of annoyance wouldn’t have affected the status of my flight. Life is full of ebbs and flows, and I’m learning to embrace both of those times with the same enthusiasm.
So Bran and I are sitting here waiting to board and our flight has already been delayed for another hour and half. I actually have a job interview today that I now think I’m about to miss. So while this would justify my misery once again, I’m now choosing to smile. There’s a reason this is happening, I’m just unaware of what that is.
So you may not experience the same situation this week, but I assure you something may happen that was not in your plan. I hope we can all pattern my fiance’s behavior and choose to look at it from the better view. Life is so beautiful if we take the time out to see it that way.
Until Next Time…
