When we only have 24 hours in a day we tend to try and do as much as possible. But have you noticed those days where you seem to spin your wheels and feel as if nothing was accomplished? You spent time working, yet nothing was completed. It can at times feel like an out of body experience. You know you worked, just have no proof that you accomplished anything.
I have been traveling all my life and this summer the dreaded “I lost my luggage” happened.
The emotions that poured and escalated and went through many changes of ups and downs left me breathless.
So I fluctuated between:
- No problem, the airlines will locate it
- It’s been 24 hrs and no news about my luggage
- Last time I’m traveling with this airlines
- What the **** it’s now 48 hrs
- Seriously, in this day and age of airport security they cannot find my luggage?
- I buy my 100euros of necessities which does not buy you much if you are in Europe (airline budget)
- It seems no one at the retreat I’m at wears my size of shoes …
- Who needs more clothes
- I’m grateful I have 2 items of everything and water so I can do laundry
- I am detaching from my belongings
- I’m letting go
- A few days more I was saying: What luggage?
When it comes to taking much needed time off, what do you do? Many go on vacation. But when you talk to these folks once their vacation is over, many will say they need a vacation from the vacation.
As time seems to speed up we tend to do the same with our vacation time. We want to get in as much play time as possible, so we tend to go overboard.
- 5 hour flight to destination
- Go to the pool to relax
- Get ready for dinner
- Get up early to take advantage of the breakfast buffet
- Take a 3 hour jeep ride across the terrain
- Stop for lunch
- Head off to the beach for a bout of snorkeling
- Head back to the hotel, get cleaned up and head out for dinner
- Take a 5-hour tour of the city
- Get back to the hotel and spend a couple of hours by the pool
- Get cleaned up and head off to another excursion - Head back to the hotel, get cleaned up and head off to the dinner and show.
Thousands of people each year suffer from the fear of flying, yet when you ask each person why, they simply state they hate flying. But why? It seems that in most cases it’s the fear of the unknown.
- Will I make it in one piece?
- What if we crash?
- I’ve seen YouTube videos of turbulent flights and how people are hurt, what if this happens to me?
- Seeing the flight attendant demonstrating what to do in an emergency or watching a video about it?
You meet someone for the first time, go to shake hands and have an electoral charge that’s absolutely hard to explain.
- Could it be it’s a dry day and you simply denote it to an electric shock similar to that of rubbing your feet on carpet and then touching an object only to get an electric shock?
- Is it love at first touch causing a warm sensation once your hands touch?
- Or maybe it’s a familiarity that you can’t seem to explain, even after going through all the places you may have met only coming up with no answer why this person looks so familiar to you.
