That Fairytale Life…

I just had the best weekend in London. I love that city more than you can know. I had a fairytale there last year—one that I won’t really go into too much detail— but I’ll let you in on a bit of a secret. I fell in love there, but not in the way you […]

Confessions Of A Flight Attendant: Absolutely Worth It

The cooling unit of my hotel room in Queens sounds like the traffic buzzing on a crowded New York street. It’s loud and obnoxious, but I drown it out, because I accept that the noise comes with the territory. A lot comes with this territory. A lot of extremes; extreme jet lag, extreme happiness, extreme […]

5 Ways To Make Goal-Setting Not Just Something You Say, But Something You Do

We all have goals and dreams, but what stops some of us from actually achieving  our intentions?  I feel like there can be a fine line between success and failure, many of us never making the jump into what we want, where we want to be, and who we want to become. Why can’t we […]

Possible

I sat, distractedly stirring my coffee as I thumbed through my Instagram feed.  It was early, probably too early for coffee, and probably too early to be hungry.  But I was.  It was also to early to be at an airport.  Another airport, or the same airport.  I don’t really know at this point.  Always […]

What Is ‘The Flight Attendant Life?’

I asked myself the question, “What is The Flight Attendant Life?” while staring at a mostly blank screen, trying to write.  I hate that word ‘trying’ because what it really means is failing, or not actually making it.  This week was trying.  It seems as if weeks are these days.  There is a joke between my […]

Dreamliner Stories & A Dreamliner Life:  Thoughts of A Newly International Flight Attendant

I arrived back in Ft Lauderdale Monday this week…or was it Sunday?  What day was the 12th?  It doesn’t matter.  I lived long days, and short days.  International flying plays havoc on sleep, life, days, weeks…that’s simply the way that it is. The bird sitting pretty on a gray day at Arlanda Airport- Sweden At […]

Which Story Will You Tell?

This is for Becca, I’ve never met you, but you inspire me.  I’ve never met many people that have read this blog, but your emails, comments, and quiet support fill me with purpose.  Thank you. Kara. *** This morning, I wrote in my notes: “I feel crushed by the weight of my dreams.” Yesterday, I […]
