I’m feeling edgy and anxious.A� My room is cluttered.A� Purses, gym bags, and books strewn haphazardly around my room.A� It’s a little bit of chaos, somewhat descriptiveA�of my state ofA�emotions at present.A� I want my life in order.A� I want things settled and organized. I want focus and consistency, stability and control.
But, that is notA�a flight attendant’s life.A� That is not my life.A� That is not life. Period.
I’m not saying to disregard goals, plans, or schedules (the previous blog was all about my goals).A� Routine is important.A� Routine keeps babies happy.A� Routine keeps adults happy, but there is a point at which one must accept what is out of the sphere of control and learn to adapt.
Life is not a predictable recipe where you can put in two cups of success, one cup of great relationships, a teaspoon of adventure, and wah-lah, concocted perfection.A� There are those unexpected surprises, the delayed aircrafts, the annoying kid that won’t stop kicking the seat in front of you, and that damn h key on my keyboard that only works sometimes (subsequent blogs may just need to be typed sans letter).
It seems that feelings of overwhelm come for a visit when I am about to leave for a trip, a personal adventure, and in two days, I hope to be off to see new sights.A� I just haven’t picked a destination yet.A� There is so much that I want to see.A� The world.A� It’s a big place.
My friend sent me thisA�link.A� Watching the video gave me the chills.A� Marrakech, Thailand, Buenos Aires…?A� Amazing.A� The guy that made the video quit his job, bought a one-way ticket, and left.A� He saw the world.A� And now look atA�what heA�has created byA�sharing the beautyA�he has witnessed?A� And I’m guessing there were times he felt overwhelmed too.
