Shooting directly into the sun’s glare. I don’t recall where I was going this day.
Flying into San Francisco. Gradually approaching the runway (see the long piece of land extending into the water)
I get asked if I’m afraid to fly quite often. I’m always on my best behavior in uniform, so I don’t raise my eyebrow nor shoot a look of confusion their direction. I simply reply, “Nope. I never have.” [Cue smile]
I’ve been non-stop flying since a few days before Christmas. I counted how many flights I’ve taken this last week (from Monday to Monday) – 29 flights. I worked 26 of those.
Right now I’m sitting here in my hotel room on a layover in Klamath Falls, OR. It’s not an exciting place as far as I can tell. However, I just remember how this time last year I was complaining how I never go anywhere. Sometimes a few years would go by before I would take a trip anywhere out of the state of Texas. Now I fly more than I drive, I see snow on an ‘almost’ regular basis, and I literally talk to hundreds of new faces a few times a week. Oh, and I saw my first celebrity sighting two days ago (in LAX of course). I walked right past Khloe Kardashian and all of these flashing lights as she was exiting security. She’s a much more petite gal in person. Another flight attendant I know had Ryan Gosling on her flight and HE insisted they take a picture together (!!!!!!) SOOOOO JEALOUS!!! Haha.
What a difference a year can make.
Make plans for yourself, but don’t be afraid to open yourself to new and different opportunities. There are no re-dos in life. I’m learning this now – just GO for it.
